Abby Claus, Women's Swimming

Claus won three events and was part of a second-place relay when the Jumbos opened their 2021-22 season on Sunday versus Brandeis at Hamilton Pool. She first won the 100 backstroke with a career-best time of 59.19 seconds. Her 2:07.99 in the 200 back was nearly a three-second victory, and then she earned the "hat track" with a 2:10.97 win in the 200 individual medley. For the 200 freestyle relay, Claus anchored Tufts' second relay and her 24.09 split (50 yards) was the fastest in the race. Claus' 29.75 team points scored led Tufts to a big victory.
