Frenzel's Three Event Wins Lead Loggers Past Willamette

SALEM, Ore. – Both Puget Sound swim teams cam away with convincing wins over Willamette on Friday night. The women's team took the 138-62 win while the men's team won 130-72.

Derek Frenzel led the men's squad with three victories in the meet. His time of 10:03.69 was nearly a minute and a half faster then the closest finisher for his first event win. He took the 400 IM win by an 18 second margin with a 4:21.68 and swam a 50.21 to lead a 1-2-3 finish in the 100 free for the Loggers.

Jere Jeremikj and Aidan Loewen-Thomas also came away winners for the men's team and helped the Loggers to a pair of relay wins.

Six different members of the women's team came away with an event win in the dual. Ava Williams led the Loggers with wins in the 1000 free and the 100 breast with times of 11:36.10 and 1:15.10, respectively.

Mariah Snowden led a 1-2-3 effort for the Loggers in the 200 free as did Sam Anders in the 400 IM. Melissa Norrish took the event win in the 100 free for the Loggers and Auri Clark followed with a 1:03.43 to win the 100 back. Brianna Greenwood's 5:45.97 was tops in the 500 free as well. The Loggers also won both relay events.

Next up, the Loggers head to Linfield for a 1 p.m. NWC dual.

Sophomore Derek Frenzel burst on to the scene as a freshman in 2010-11. He not only earned a bid to the NCAA Championships but came away with All-America Honorable Mention. Frenzel now looks to be a leader for the Logger swim teams on his way back to the NCAA Championships. “I expect myself to lead by example and to always encourage others to do whatever they can to make our team successful. It takes a lot of commitment to the sport, the team, and the school to be successful in and out of the pool.”
