The WKU men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams lost to Northwestern in a pair of nail-biters at Bill Powell Natatorium over the weekend.

The Lady Topper swimmers fell 151-145 while the men were topped 161-139 on Friday.

Despite the losses, the two teams experienced high notes throughout the day.

Freshman Amy Crayne won two diving evaluations — the three-meter and one-meter. Junior Claire Conlon swept the two breaststroke events, freshman Maffie Patterson won the 100 fly, and freshman Celia Ouellette won the 50 free for the Lady Toppers.

On the men’s side, the team of junior Seth Musser, junior TJ Bland, senior Heitor Rodrigues and sophomore Aymeric Le Corno won the 400 medley relay with a Bill Powell Natatorium record of 3:17:93.

Rodrigues also won the 200 fly, while Musser won the 200 back and 200 IM.

The WKU teams will have the opportunity to get back on track in their next meet on Nov. 9 at Cincinnati.
