Feb. 25, 2018

Geneva, Ohio -

The BIG EAST Championship concluded today in Geneva, Ohio. The weekend ended with both the Villanova Wildcats (Women) and the Seton Hall Pirates (Men) winning consecutive BIG EAST Swimming and Diving titles. Although the Friars did not take home the Championship, they did set two new school records today. This makes nine new school records set this weekend for Providence College.

Junior Ryan Trammell had an incredible weekend. Going into day four, Trammell had already been a part of the 200-yard Medley Relay and 400-yard Medley Relay that set new school records. He also set a new school record yesterday in the 100-yard Breaststroke. Trammell went on to add one more record to his name today as he finished the Men’s 200-yard Breaststroke in 2:04.35. He broke previous record of 2:05.02 held by Connor Fabian.

Freshman Sebastian Melendez also added to his records today, as he finished the Men’s 200-yard Butterfly in 1:52.49, breaking Stephen Brown’s record of 1:53.21. Melendez was also a part of the Men’s 200-yard Freestyle Relay that set a new school record on Thursday.
