Wellesley College will host the Seven Sisters Swimming and Diving Championship this weekend in Chandler Pool. Events start at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Fans and supporters are invited to cheer on the Blue as the squad seeks its 21st Seven Sisters Championship title—and its 16th consecutive title. Coming off recent wins over Smith, Coast Guard, and Babson, the momentum is behind Wellesley. The team is 6-2 overall this year, with the two losses coming at the hands of nationally-ranked opponents.

One of the team leaders in last year's successful championship, Hayley Goydan '14, is diving strong again this year, and individual medley specialist Dorothy Ren '16 continues her record-breaking season in good form.

In other team news, first-year swimmer Ceallach Gibbons was recently appointed to the USA Local Swimming Committee Development Committee as a national athlete representative, joining about 30 other swimmers nationwide serving on 15 different committees. Her responsibilities as a committee member will include being an active participant in meetings and activities in order to support the sport on a national level.
