Vestergaard continued to plow through the competition this past weekend when she achieved her highest score in the 3-meter boards for the 2011-12 season (255.08) against Florida International, good for a second place finish overall for CCSU.

Central picked up wins in the 400 medley relay behind sophomore Helene Neuhaus (Westport,CT/Staples), Kristinal Guila (Orange, CT/Amity), Katie Lang (Monroe, CT/Masuk) and Taylor Friedmann (Berlint, CT/Berlin). Other highlights included a first place finish in the 100 yard breastroke (1:08.64) from Guila and a top finish by Neuhaus in the 50 free (25.22). Senior Alex Czaplicki (North Haven, CT/North Haven) tied for first in the 100 freestyle posting a time of 54.55. The Blue Devils will next compete with NEC rival Wagner on January 28.
