NEW ORLEANS, La. - Senior Maddie Myers (Arvada, Colo.) and junior Bailey Andison (Smiths Falls, Ontario) each won two individual events, and senior Heidi Bradley (Victoria, B.C.) was a part of a relay win in addition to her victory in the 200 fly to lead the University of Denver women's swimming and diving team past FIU 115-90 on Saturday afternoon at the Reily Center Natatorium.

The team victory caps off a perfect weekend for the Pioneers at the Dual-a-Pool-Ooza that also saw Denver earn decisive victories over Rice and Tulane.

Myers earned Denver's first win of the final meet of the weekend in the 1000 free, clocking in at 10:05.97, winning the race by a little less than four seconds. Andison got her first win of the meet in the 200 breast, timed at 2:17.32 in the race.

Denver continued its success on the weekend in the 200 butterfly, taking the top three spots in the dual on Saturday afternoon. Bradley led the trio with a 2:02.65. After sweeping the butterfly events in the morning dual, sophomore Josie Valette (Boulder, Colo.) finished second, just 0.15 seconds behind Bradley. Sophomore Kylie Cronin (Marblehead, Mass.) touched third with a 2:04.64.

Senior Morgan McCormick (Golden, Colo.) capped off her backstroke weekend with a 55.82 in the 100 yard race to take first.

Myers got her second win of the dual in the 200 free, finishing 1-2 with freshman Aysia Leckie (Georgetown, Ontario), turning in times of 1:51.51 and 1:51.99, respectively.

Andison continued her breaststroke success in the 50 on Saturday, finishing in 29.07 to take the heat.

Denver didn't win the 100 IM, but did pick up valuable points in dual by taking spots 2-4. Freshman Emily Vandenberg (Ajax, Ontario - 58.30), McCormick (58.72) and freshman Ally Yancy (Cave Creek, Ariz. + 59.66) took those three spots.

The Pioneers closed out the weekend with a victory in the 400 free relay. Leckie led-off the race for Denver, and was followed by Valette, junior Lauren Moden (Parker, Colo.) and Bradley to combine for a time of 3:26.90.
