WALTHAM, Mass. – After participating on the Falcons' winning 200 yard medley relay to start the meet, Bentley University sophomore Kate Kaduboski (Dedham/Dedham HS) won three events, all with the best times of the young season in the Northeast-10 Conference, to power her team to a 176-122 victory over Le Moyne College in women's swimming action Sunday afternoon at the Dana Center pool.
Bentley took a lead it never relinquished by capturing the 200 medley in a meet record 1:52.18. Kaduboski was followed into the pool by junior Emily Niemiec (Meriden, Conn./Francis T. Maloney HS), sophomore Melissa Viator (Lubbock, Texas/Lubbock HS) and senior captain Kaitlin McGahie (Boylston/Tahanto Reg. HS).
Kaduboski's wins came in the 100 backstroke (1:01.47), 200 back (2:10.44) and the 200 individual medley (2:15.24) with each of those clockings the best in the NE-10 so far this season.
McGahie (50 freestyle, 100 free) and Viator (200 free, 100 butterfly) were both double-winners for Bentley. McGahie recorded meet records and NE-10 bests in both events with times of 24.95 and 54.90, respectively. Viator captured the 200 free in 2:01.82 and the 100 fly in 1:01.96.
