HONOLULU - Notre Dame's women's swimming and diving team defeated Hawaii and Iowa in a double dual-meet action in Honolulu. The Irish beat the Hawkeyes 140-91 and host Hawaii 157-84 to conclude their Hawaiian trip and improve their record to 4-0. Notre Dame returns to the pool when it plays host to BIG EAST rival Miami on Fri., Jan. 16, at 4:00 p.m.

The Irish won seven of the 13 events, led by senior Linda Gallo who set a school record for the second consecutive meet. Gallo won both the 200 freestyle in 1:51.65 and the 1000 freestyle in record time of 10:01.38, better than her 10:04.50 that she set last year. She also placed fourth in the 100 breaststroke.

Other winners for Notre Dame were freshman Kristen Van Saun in the 500 freestyle in 5:00.96 and Carrie Nixon won the 50 freestyle in 24.17. Sophomores Rhiana Saunders and Gina Ketelhohn swept the one-meter and three-meter diving events.
