Five Waves Capture Top Finishes at LMU Pentathlon

Nov. 13, 2004

Los Angeles, Calif. - Pepperdine women's swimming competed for top honors in three categories at Loyola Marymount's Pentathlon Saturday along with Cal State Northridge and the host Lions. The Waves captured 22 top five finishes in 13 swim events.

Top performers for the Waves were Megan Kelly, Michelle Sutherland and Katharine Skora.

Individual swimmers entered one of three categories (Short Medley Pentathlon, Long Medley Pentathlon and Freestyle Pentathlon) and swam five events to compete for their competition's lowest combined time.

Three of the Freestyle Pentathlon's five events were won by Waves thanks to Skora's top finishes in the 200 freestyle (1:56.33) and the 500 freestyle (5:12.11) Lemmen's 11.71 25 freestyle race.

Skora's two event wins kept the freshman's total time low enough to capture second place in the Freestyle Medley, just second off the lead. Lemmen didn't finish lower than fourth in any race Saturday. Her consistency earned her third place in the most contested of the three competitions.

The short medley saw Kelly capture fourth place with a time of 3:01.76 in her five races. Her top finishes came in the 50 butterfly and the 100 butterfly, where she took third in each race.

In the long medley two Waves placed in the top five with Michelle Sutherland taking third and Lauryn Velarde backing her up in fifth place.

Velarde took three top five finishes on the day taking fourth in the 100 backstroke and 100 breaststroke before claiming fifth in the 400 individual medley.

Sutherland's day was highlighted by winning the 100 backstroke with the top time of 1:03.47. She also finished third in the 100 butterfly, as well as the 400 IM.

Sixteen Waves competed in LMU's Pentathlon, with half finishing in the top ten of their respective competitions.

Pepperdine's swimming and diving will next compete in their final fall competition at this weekend's Speedo Invitational in Long Beach, November 18-20.
