The men’s and women’s swim teams took the win against Little Rock in the Little Rock Invitational last week. The day was filled with total dominance from the Reddies as the men took the meet 138-64, and the women took the meet 127-78. The Reddie teams did not disappoint.  

Isabelle Andrews was the highlight of the women’s team with two first-place finishes in the 200-yard with a time of 1:59.52, and a 59.14 time in the 100-yard. The women’s team was in complete control finishing with five different swimmers winning an event including Aly Voos winning the 1000 Free, and Elam Fulton with the 50 free.

 With the women’s team winning the invitational and winning against rival OBU, they now have momentum and look to gain another win in their next invitational.

Till Steyer was the highlight of the men’s team, finishing with two individual wins in the 200-yard free (1:42.86) and the 100 butterfly (53:29). It was a fantastic performance all around with HSU winning every race but the 200-free relay. Jason Seiner also won the 50 free with a time of 22:16, and Logan Wetterling coming in first in the 400 IM with a time of 4:27.86.

The Reddies men’s and women’s teams came out with a dominating performance, finishing first in the Little Rock Invitational and looking for their next win in the Hendrix Invitational starting on November 2nd.
