Confer Leads UPB Women's Swim to Victory at Alfred State

Ann Confer posted two individual wins and two relay, leading the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford women's swim team to an 87-42 victory at Alfred State on Saturday afternoon.

"Both teams worked really hard this week in practice," said Pitt-Bradford interim head coach Jamie Hannold. "We had a lot of great swims." 

Confer picked up victories in the 100 free (59.88) and 50 free (26:13). She also teamed with Wehonna Toth, Ava Young and Elizabeth Prager for a victory in the 400-medley relay.

Jillian Wright had an impressive showing, winning the 1000 free (14:09.60) and the 200 IM (2:46.75) while adding a second place finish in the 200 breast (3:03.54).

Prager led a 1-2-3 finish for the Panthers in the 200 back (2:24.19). Young followed in second (2:31.14) and Toth was third (2:40.83). 

Toth, Young, Prager and Confer added a win in the 400 free relay (4:23.40).

"I am really proud of this team and how far they have come since November," Hannold said. "We are going to continue working hard for the next couple of weeks to get ready for the AMCC Championships."

The Panthers return to the pool Friday evening to host Penn State Behrend at 5 p.m. in their final tune up before the AMCC Championships at Grove City College on Feb. 10-13.
