Providence, R.I. -

The Providence College swimming and diving team hosted their first home meet of the 2017-18 season today (Nov. 4) vs. Fairfield University. The women were stumped by Fairfield, 184.5 - 113.5. The men were dominant today, winning by a score of 164-98.
 
Freshman Lauren Zawacki has been making a name for herself this season. She zipped through the 50-meter freestlye in 26.84 seconds, bringing home nine points for the Friars, and breaking a 27-year old Providence College record, set by Cathy Ritch (27.20) in 1990.
 
 
More than one school record was broken today. Right after Zawacki’s record-breaking time, Patrick Brannigan followed in suit, breaking the Men’s 50-meter freestyle school record that he set in 2016 (24.11). Brannigan touched the wall in just 23.88 seconds. He then went on to bring home an additional nine points for the Friars, winning the Men’s 100-meter freestyle (53.49).
 
Brannigan teamed up with Ricky Billig, Ryan Trammell and Charlie Sabaitis to win the Men’s 200-meter medley relay and earn 11 points for the Friars (1:48.28). Trammell continued on his winning streak, taking first in 100-meter breaststroke (1:06.39) and in 200-meter breaststroke (2:30.67). He finished his day contributing another four points with his second-place finish in 100-meter butterfly (1:00.48).
 
You can catch the Friars back in action as they host Iona next Saturday, Nov. 11, in Providence.
