NORTON, Mass. – Senior Jen Chao led a strong effort for MIT women’s swimming and diving at the non-scoring Charlie Batterman Relays hosted by NEWMAC rival Wheaton College. Chao factored into all four victories for the Engineers, who enjoyed a solid start to open the 2008-09 season.
Chao enjoyed success in the fly twice (200 medley, 200 fly) while also participating on the winning 200 back and 400 individual medley relays. She nearly pulled MIT to another victory in the 400 free after anchoring with a split of 55.82.
Freshman Allison Alwan and senior Nicole O’Keefe joined in on three of the wins with O’Keefe splitting 26.93 to anchor the 200 back. Senior Abby Clark and sophomore Katie Creasy also finished as part of winning teams.
