For the first time in six years, the Norwich University women’s swim team pulled off a win, 120-110, against Babson College. It was the women’s first win since 2009, and it was greeted by surprise and elation, spurring hopes of a turnaround for the program.

“The win definitely provides momentum moving forward,” said Bretscher. “This was one of the team goals this year, and being able to do it this early at this point in the season really helps providing confidence,” Bretscher said, adding that it would give the team a boost to “go out there compete against some of the top teams we compete against.” [Read more…]
