Bailey Bonnett continues to make a big impact in her freshman season at Kentucky.

The Highlands graduate took home three top-seven finishes over the weekend as the Wildcats competed at the USA Swimming Winter Nationals in Columbus, Ohio.

Bonnett took third place in the 200-yard breaststroke, sixth in the 400 individual medley and seventh in the 100 breaststroke. Her time of 4 minutes, 12.38 seconds in the 400 IM was the fifth best in Kentucky history.

A three-time SEC Freshman of the Week this season, Bonnett already owns Kentucky records in the 100 and 200 breaststroke and top-10 times in the 200 and 400 IM.


Freshman Mallory Marzolf (Deer Lakes) set three school records at the Wooster Invitational, taking second in the 200 IM (2:10.10) and fourth in the 100 backstroke (58.81 seconds) and in the 200 backstroke (2:05.96).

Marzolf, her junior twin sisters Iris and Jade Marzolf (Deer Lakes) and Christine Mikita set Chatham records in the 200, 400 and 800 freestyle relays, earning top-eight finishes in those and the 400 medley relay.

Track and field


Freshman Liz Debich (Kiski Area) placed sixth in the shot put in her first collegiate meet Saturday at the Case Western Reserve Holiday Classic. Her top throw was 11.57 meters.


Sophomore Ian Miller placed ninth in the pole vault at Saturday's Marty Pushkin Classic in Morgantown, W.Va., clearing 12 feet, 5 12 inches.



Juniors Corey Falleroni (Burrell) and Steve Edwards (Burrell) recorded victories in No. 5 Pitt-Johnstown's 25-12 win over No. 10 Ashland. Falleroni beat Dustin Marteney, 8-6, at 147 pounds on a late takedown and back points, and Edwards had a 12-0 major decision over Trevyon Terry at 184 pounds.

Sophomore Damon Greenwald (Burrell) posted a 9-3 decision over Kutztown's James Meyer, helping the Griffins to a 29-11 victory in a PSAC match Saturday.


Freshman Michael Mahon (Fox Chapel) took fourth place at 184 pounds at the Petrofes Invitational in Grantham. Mahon went 4-2 on the day.
