GROVE CITY, Pa. -- The Grove City College women's swimming and diving team improved to 4-0 in the Presidents' Athletic Conference and 9-3 overall with a 155-139 victory over visiting Westminster Tuesday night in PAC dual-meet action at the Grove City College Pool.

Grove City sewed up the victory by winning the meet-ending 200 free relay. Freshman Jenna Richert (Sewickley, Pa./Quaker Valley), freshman Emily Kramer (Ankeny, Iowa/Homeschooled), junior Amanda Thompson (Erie, Pa./McDowell) and sophomore Sarah Page (Colorado Springs, Colo./Pine Creek) combined for a victorious time of 1 minute, 41.13 seconds.

Freshman Bethany Johnson swept the diving events for the Wolverines. She won 1-meter diving with 222.60 points, then took top honors on the 3-meter board with 215.00 points.

Grove City will visit Pitt-Bradford Friday night in a double-dual with Penn State Behrend. The Wolverines are in pursuit of their first 10-win season since the 1996-97 team went 11-1. The 11 wins are a single-season school record.
