Munday finds stroke in Boston

Former Butte Tarpon and Butte High School swimmer Emily Munday recently competed for the Boston University Terriers in the American East Conference Championships in Boston. In two races, Munday met up with Missoulian Colleen Miller, who now swims as a sophomore with the University of Maine.

On day one, the Terrier women’s 200-medley relay team tied with the University of Maine in a time of 1 minute, 48.31 seconds for third place. Freshman Ali Chester swam the opening leg of the race, followed by senior Lidija Breznikar, Munday and senior Marina Morie. Munday swam the butterfly leg of the race in 25.92 seconds.

On day two, the BU women’s 200-freestyle relay team of freshman Brigette O’Shaughnessy, Munday, Morie and sophomore Eve Kinsella swam to a first-place finish, breaking a 23-year-old team record in the process.The 200-free relay time was just seven one-hundredths shy of breaking the American East Championship record, as the team clocked in at 1:35.98. Munday swam a 24.02 in her leg of the race. Miller clocked a 25.09 and her University of Maine team finished in fourth place.

On day three, Munday earned points in finals in both the 100-meter butterfly and 100-meter backstroke. She took fifth place in the butterfly with a 58.08 and seventh in the backstroke with a 1:00.74.In the butterfly, teammates O’Shaughnessy and senior Tanaz Irani took sixth and eighth in 58.16 and 58.81, respectively.

Munday also won the “B” heat of the 100-meter freestyle with a time of 53.42. Teammate Kinsella won the “A” heat with a 51.27.
