KEENE, N.H. – After helping the Bentley University women's swimming and diving team capture the meet-opening 200 yard medley relay, junior Emily Niemiec (Meriden, Conn./Francis T. Maloney HS) finished first in three individual events, leading the Falcons to a 172-116 win over Keene State College at the Spaulding Gymnasium pool Saturday afternoon.

Niemiec was the first to touch in the 100 breaststroke (1:12.87), the 200 breast (2:34.29) and the 200 individual medley (2:15.34). Falcon freshman Ari Revelas (Snyder, N.Y./Nardin Academy) was second in both breaststroke races, finishing 0.92 seconds behind her teammate in the 100 and 4.24 seconds later in the 200. Niemiec's winning margin in the 200 IM was more than eight seconds.

In the 200 medley, Niemiec combined with sophomore Kate Kaduboski (Dedham, Mass./ Dedham HS) and seniors Kaitlin McGahie (Boylston, Mass./Tahanto Reg. HS) and Nicole Hellstern (Southbury, Conn./Pomperaug HS) for a winning time of 1:56.01.

Kaduboski earned first-place finishes in both the 100 backstroke (1:01.72) and the 200 back (2:12.07), and McGahie doubled in the 50 free (25.68) and 100 free (55.86). She also anchored Bentley's 400 free relay that also included sophomore Brooke Jameson (Bedford, Mass./Bedford HS), Hellstern and freshman Lea Guldemond (West Newbury, Mass./Central Catholic  HS).

Freshman Caroline Logozzo (Wethersfield, Conn./Wethersfield HS) swept the diving with identical scores of 201.15 on both boards.

Jameson, in addition to participating on the winning relay, was second in both the 1000 free (11:22.64) and the 500 free (5:32.19).

Bentley, 7-1 after notching its seventh straight win, will be home against Babson College Tuesday at 6 pm.
