U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. – The Air Force women’s swimming and diving team fell to Grand Canyon, 142-101, in a dual meet Saturday, Nov. 4, in Phoenix, Ariz.

In the first individual event of the meet, Air Force took three of the top four spots as Jayden Glover won (17:31.81), Elisabeth Brechbuhl was second (17:58.16) and Kelsey Linzmeyer was third (18:03.86).

Senior Jinan Andrews was second in the 200 free (1:55.17) and freshman Winnie Chen was third (1:56.47). Sophomore Lydia Knutson was second in the 50 free (23.68). Freshman Lexie Duchene was second in the 400 IM (4:34.88).

The Falcons took three of the top four spots in the 100 fly as freshman Jessie Wierzbicki was second (56.77), Esther Min was third (57.47) and Elise Hart was fourth (57.10).

Air Force also took three of the top four spots in the 500 free as Glover was second (5:15.92), Bruchbuhl was third (5:17.95) and Linzmeyer was fourth (5:20.39). In the 100 breast stroke, Mollie Bushelman was second with a time of 1:07.48.

The 400 free relay team of Andrews, Winnie Chen, Jessica Chen and Knutson won with a new pool-record time of 3:31.89. 

In diving, sophomores Eve Fowler (253.40) and Kayla Wofford (247.40) placed second and third, respectively on the 1-meter board. In 3-meter, Wofford was second (246.30) while Fowler was fourth (198.53).

“Our depth really showed again at GCU,” head coach Colleen Murphy said. “We didn’t win a lot of events, but we stepped up and had some great swims. Jayden Glover’s 1650 Free was a lifetime best and she swam extremely solid. Three of our freshman really stepped up this weekend; Jessie Wierzbicki, Mollie Bushelman, and Kylie Stronko all swam season best times. We are coming together and looking forward to resting for Houston in a week and a half.”

The swimmers are now idle until the Houston Invitational, Nov. 16-18, in Houston, Texas. The divers will compete in the USC Invitational, Nov. 10-12, in Los Angeles, Calif.
