WELLESLEY, Mass. – Lincoln’s Anna Vygoder, who is a junior on the Rhode Island College women’s swim team, recently broke two program records and earned three Second Team All-Little East honors to help the Anchorwomen place seventh out of 10 teams at the season-ending Little East Conference’s Swimming and Diving Championships at the Boston Sports Institute.
Vygoder received her All-LEC honors by taking second place in the 50-yard (32.11 seconds), 100-yard (1:10.24) and 200-yard (2:35.86) breaststroke events. Her times in the 50 and 200 also established new program records.
She also helped RIC’s 800-yard freestyle relay team place seventh and the 200-yard medley, 400-yard freestyle, and 400-yard medley relay teams take eighth places.
Smithfield’s Meghan Laflamme, who is a junior, also placed in the top dozen in seven events. A 2020 graduate of Smithfield High who helped the Sentinels’ swim team win Division III titles in 2017 and ‘18, Laflamme took seventh place in the 50-yard backstroke (30.58 seconds) and with the 800-yard freestyle relay team.
Laflamme also joined Vygoder on RIC's 200-yard medley, 400-yard freestyle, and 400-yard medley relay teams, and she also placed 10th in the 200-yard freestyle (2:15.02) and 11th in the 200-yard backstroke (2:28.88).
Lincoln’s Olivia Landry, who is a freshman, also placed 11th in the 200-yard butterfly (3:47.28) and 13th in the 100-yard butterfly (1:41.48). Vygoder and Landry were three-sport standouts at Lincoln High who helped the girls’ swim team claim the Division II championship in 2020.
