Emily Ward Wins 3 Events, Leading UCSB Women Past UCLA in Swimming

The UCSB women's swim team swept the 50 freestyle and went on to defeat UCLA, 137.5-123.5, in a dual meet on Saturday.

Emily Ward took first place in 24.20, Bryn McGowan was second (24.60), and Lexi Fusari (24.68) came in third.

Ward had a big day for the Gauchos, winning three events against the Bruins. She took the 100 free in 51.82 and tied for first in the 200 free in 1:52.35. 

In the first race of the day, UCSB "A" relay (3:47.61) came in a close second place to UCLA "A" relay (3:46.59) in the 400 medley relay.

Sophomores Emily Boggess (10:13.29) and Rachel Forbes (10:15.60) got the Gauchos going, taking first and second in the 1000 freestyle.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
