Rehrig lead her team to victory with wins in both the 50 and 100-yard freestyle races.

The No. 21 Lock Haven University swim team won eight-of-11 events including the final race on Friday in the 200 free relay, giving the Lady Eagles a thrilling, 106-98 win over Millersville University.

The win marked the first under newly-appointed head coach Joel Blesh.

Leading the way tonight for Lock Haven was Brittany Rehrig (Wilmington, Del./Charter School of Wilmington).

Rehrig accounted for two of The Haven’s eight wins. She won both the 50 and 100-yard freestyle races with PSAC qualifying marks of 24.58 and 54.50, respectively.

Laura Stephens (West Chester, Pa./Univ. of Vermont) picked up the Lady Eagles third individual PSAC mark after winning the 100-yard breaststroke in a time of 1:09.70.

The Lady Eagles opened the meet with a win in the 200 medley relay and needing a win in the 11th and final event of the dual, The Haven sealed the victory with a win in the 200 free relay.

Allie Muha (Millersville, Md./Severna Park), Kristin Taylor (Dillsburg, Pa./Northern York) and Kayla Schnars (Howard, Pa./Bellefonte) were all individual winners for Lock Haven.

Muha won the 200 IM with a time of 2:21.08, while Schnars won the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:03.07.

Taylor won the 100 butterfly (1:02.38) and was second in the 1,000 free (11:38.88).

Tonight marked Lock Haven’s final competition before the team breaks for the Holidays.

Lock Haven will travel to California for a training trip in early January. On Friday, January 11, the Lady Eagles will take on Chapman and Soka and the University of Chapman.
