Brittany Rehrig won the 100 freestyle and breaststroke.

The Lock Haven Women’s Swimming Team was defeated by the East Stroudsburg Warriors at Zimmerli Hall last Saturday afternoon with an end result of 85-120.

Joel Blesh, a Lock Haven University Graduate and Lock Haven native, was named head coach recently and welcomed with a huge applause before the event.

Blesh was a 10-time NCAA National Championship qualifier from 2005-2007 and three-time honorable mention All-American.

The Lady Eagles managed to place first in four events throughout the afternoon with two individual wins from Brittany Rehrig (Wilmington, Del./ Charter School of Wilmington) in the 100 freestyle (53.75) and the 100 breaststroke (1:08.11).

Rehrig also took first in the 200 freestyle relay with help of Kristen Capretti (Lebanon, PA./Cedar Crest), Carley Nitchie (Forest Hill, Md./Bel Air), and Laura Stephens ( West Chester/Univ. of Vermont) with an impressive time of 1:41.06.

Stephens and Capretti placed first in the 200 medley relay along with Kristin Taylor (Dillsburg, PA./ Northern York) and Kayla Schnars (Howard, PA./Bellefonte) with a time of 1:53.95.

“We’re satisfied,” said Rehrig after the match-up. “We left it all in the pool and it was a good practice for our invitational. You can’t let a lose get to you.”

The Lady Eagles will travel to Indiana, PA for their next invitational on Thursday, November 15, at 11 a.m. against the Crimson Hawks.
