Freshman Maggie Lasto of Orange recorded a personal best in the 500 freestyle (5:39.29) and finished second as the Warriors closed out its regular season with a tri-meet split Jan. 27  at Roger Williams University. For her performance, Lasto was selected as Little East Conference Rookie-of-the-Week for the first time and the program’s Athlete-of-the-Week for the second time. At Roger Williams, Lasto was also second in the 1000 freestyle (11:41.96). Roger Williams was last year’s NEISDA champion. Eastern (8-1) defeated Babson College (3-12), 139-131, and had a perfect season spoiled in an emphatic 212-71 loss to host Roger Williams (7-3), last year’s NEISDA (New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association) champion. It marked the fourth time in the last seven years that Eastern has lost only one regular-season meet.
