Complete Results

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame's women's swimming and diving team swept three of the first four events and built a 59-15 lead on its way to a 195-105 win over BIG EAST rival Miami in a rematch of the 1997 BIG EAST championship in which Notre Dame rallied from an early deficit to beat second-place Miami. The Irish improved to 5-0 on the season in dual meets while the Hurricanes fall to 6-6. Two undefeated teams will square off on a Saturday, January 17, when 8-0 Illinois comes to Rolfs Aquatic Center at 1:00 p.m.

Notre Dame opened the meet quickly, taking first and second in the 200 medley relay. Senior Linda Gallo then won the 1000 freestyle as she topped her own school record with her time of 9:56.34. Freshmen Kristen Van Saun and Brenda Reilly and sophomore Alison Newell swept the top three spots in the 200 freestyle and freshman Allison Vendt, Tiffany O'Brien and Katie Collins swept the 100 backstroke to help Notre Dame build a 59-15 lead.

After Miami won the 100 breaststroke, Newell won the 200 butterfly and freshman Carrie Nixon, senior Courtney South and sophomore Laura Shepard went one-two-three in the 50 freestyle to put the Irish up 96-35. The powerful Miami diving team cut the lead to 102-48 before Nixon, South and Collins swept the 100 freestyle. Vendt and O'Brien took the top two spots in the 200 backstroke to set up another Irish sweep in the 500 freestyle to clinch the meet.

In all, Notre Dame swept the top three spots in six of the 11 individual swimming events. Gallo, Vendt and Nixon were double winners for the Irish who also won both relays.
