Oct. 7 - Oct. 13, 2013
Senior Klara Pavelkova swept the backstroke events, and also led off for the victorious 200 medley relay team as UMBC cruised past Rider, 162-132, on Saturday to open the Retrievers’ dual meet season. The Prague, Czech Republic native put the Retrievers on their way with the top backstroke split in the 200 medley race and UMBC went on to win by over one second. Then, in her first individual event, Pavelkova earned the win in the 100-yd. back event just ahead of two Retriever teammates. The senior then capped her day with a victory in the 200-yd. race.
