BUIES CREEK, N.C. – East Carolina’s women’s swimming team improved to 6-0 on the season after defeating Campbell 155-101 Friday afternoon.
The Pirates had three multiple winners, won 10 individual events as well as the 400-yard medley relay (3:50.06).
“Today we learned a little about racing on the road,” head coach Matthew Jabs said. “We’ve been home all semester, so this was a learning experience for our younger swimmers. Glad we got the win but will need to be better as we travel more this season.”
