Returning to the pool for the second time in less than 24 hours, Valparaiso’s women’s swimming and diving team fell 201-72 to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Saturday morning in Milwaukee, Wis.

Rachel Majercik (Schaumburg, Ill./Conant H.S.) earned Valpo’s lone victory on the afternoon, posting a time of 1:00.58 in the 100 butterfly to win by more than a second-and-a-half.  The senior also finished third in the 50 free with a time of 25.19 seconds.

Justine Barnes (Rochester Hills, Mich./Adams H.S.) finished second in the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:19.03 while Amy Andracki (Arlington Heights, Ill./Prospect H.S.) added a third place finish for the Brown and Gold in the 100 breaststroke.  She touched the wall in 1:10.93.

Valparaiso (0-6) will return to action December 3-5 at the Calvin Invitational in Grand Rapids, Mich.
