Kingstown, R.I. -

The Swimming and Diving team travelled to Kingstown, R.I. this weekend to compete in the Harold Anderson Invitational against teams from all over New England. Other schools represented include Bryant, Rhode Island, Maine, Holy Cross, Assumption (women), and Holy Cross. The men finished closely behind Bryant University to take second place, while the women finished fourth.

Patrick Brannigan had another impressive meet, competing in six different events over the course of the weekend. Touching the wall in just 21.54 seconds, Brannigan earned 20 points in the 50-yard freestyle. He went on to bring home 20 more points when he finished the 100-yard freestyle in just 46.87 seconds. Brannigan also teamed up with Charlie Sabaitis, Jamie Eigner, and John Freeman to win the 200-yard freestyle and earn 40 points for the Friars (1:26.69).

In the Men’s 200-yard freestyle, the Friars could not be beaten. Led by Ricky Billig (1:44.22), Providence took first through sixth place, earning a maximum 53 points for the team.

On the diving board, Kendall Jerzyk shined once again. She faced more competition than usual this weekend, but she still managed to come out on top of the Women’s 1-meter dive with a score of 249.10, earning 20 points for the team. She contributed another 15 points with her fourth-place finish in the 3-meter dive.

The Providence College Swimming and Diving team will have some time off from competition, as they don’t return to the pool until January 13th, 2018 when the men travel to Villanova to take on the Wildcats.
