Geneva, Ohio -
The Swimming and Diving teams returned to the pool today for day two of the BIG EAST Championship. The Friars are fresh off of yesterday’s record breaking performance in the Men’s 200-yard Medley Relay, and they continued with that magic today, breaking two new school records.
First, the team of Lauren Zawacki, Margie Keenan, Emily Gardiner, and Katie Thornton zoomed through the water to set a new school record in the Women’s 200-yard Freestyle Relay. The team finished in 1:36.59, breaking previous school record of 1:37.15 by over half of a second (S. Schlich, J. Mullany, S. DeGroff, E. Nanna) and earning 28 points for the Friars.
The Men’s 200-yard Freestyle Relay followed in suit. After breaking the Men’s 200-yard Medley Relay school record yesterday, Charles Sabaitis and Patrick Brannigan joined forces with Sebastian Melendez and John Freeman to break one more. Finishing in 1:24.33, the team broke the previous record of 1:24.98 (J. Michnowicz, M. Tartaglione, S. Walker, P. Nathe) and earned 28 points.
The Friars are back tomorrow for day three of the BIG EAST Championship.
