WALTHAM, Mass. – Junior Kate Kaduboski (Dedham/Dedham HS) won three individual events, stretching her personal winning streak to 10 races, as the Bentley University women's swimming team captured every event en route to a 176.5-100.5 win over Brandeis University in the battle of Waltham Friday night at the Dana Center.

Kaduboski was the first to touch in the 200 yard freestyle (1:59.59), the 200 backstroke (2:09.95) and the 200 individual medley (2:12.34) in her first meet since earning NE10 Women's Swimmer of the Week on Nov. 7. Her 200 back time ranked second on the Northeast-10 performance list and her 200 free was fifth best in the conference to date.

Kaduboski also swam the opening leg on Bentley's 400 medley relay team that opened the meet with a winning time of 4:08.98. That quartet also included senior Emily Niemiec (Meriden, Conn./ Francis T. Maloney HS) and sophomores Lea Guldemond (West Newbury/Central Catholic HS) and Paige MacNeil (Branford, Conn./Branford HS).

MacNeil was also a triple-winner with her night including the NE10's top time of the year in the 100 backstroke (1:00.40). She also finished first in the 100 butterfly (1:01.74) and the 100 free (55.59).

Niemiec posted the conference's fastest time of 2017-18 in the 200 breast (2:30.445), also finished first in the 100 breast (2:09.15, 3rd best) and was part of the Falcons' winning 200 free relay team (1:42.49).

Sophomore diver Caroline Logozzo (Wethersfield, Conn./Wethersfield HS) achieved winning scores of 224.84 points from the one-meter board and 215.02 from the three-meter.
