NEW ORLEANS, La. — The Vanderbilt swim team traveled down New Orleans to take on the Tulane Green Wave, two teams who have always competed well against one another. While the `Dores swam hard, the squad came up just short falling to the Green Wave 186-111.

“Although we didn’t come out with a team win I am really happy with how we performed today,” said head coach Jeremy Organ. “We knew what we were coming into and I think the girls responded well.”

Led by sophomore Kara Lucenti, the Dores earned five first place finishes. Lucenti, a native of Kenilworth, Ill., showed up for the black and gold in the 200 breast (2:20.02) swimming in almost two and a half seconds before her next competitor, as well as the 400 IM (4:29.68).

“We had some really strong swims today from Kara (Lucenti), she really battled throughout the meet for her wins.”

Summer Brown, Rachel Koch and Breanna Sapienza picked up the Commodores addition three wins.

Brown, the current Vanderbilt Freshman record holder in the 200 free, kept up her tradition of excellence in the event, with a 1:53.21 first-place time. Koch followed, generating nine points for the squad with a 2:02.45 in the 200 fly. Sapienza wrapped up the first place finishes for the `Dores, swimming in at a 55.34 in the100-yard fly.

Vanderbilt gained additional points, taking second and third in the 200 medley relay, 100 back and 500 free.

VU takes a little time away from competition, and head back out on the road against Campbell University on Nov. 14th.
