In a slow week for the Washington College swim team, both the men’s and women’s teams competed in only one meet against Dickinson College, both of which ended in losses. The men’s team fell in a final score of 74-141 and the women’s a score of 65-140.

In the men’s match, the relay team was composed of freshman Nate Braddock and juniors Bren- dan Jones, David Rovansek, and Aidan Sullivan— they took first in the 400 freestyle. Meanwhile, sophomores Andrew Feeley and Brett Edwards also took first in their races, Feeley winning the 200 backstroke and Edwards coming in first in the 200 breast- stroke.

This loss left the Shoremen with a 2-7 overall record and a 0-4 Centennial Conference re- cord. Sophomore Michael Cebzanov commented on the meet. “This meet just shows every- one on the team that we are right where we want to be,” he said. “We have been working so hard this past month and I really do think it shows. At this time last year, we were not this fast. Even though we are currently 2-7, our season record doesn’t matter. No one cares how you do in season. It’s all about how we perform in our conferences.”

The women’s team shared a similar fate, as their loss left them with an overall record of 3-7 and Conference record of 1-4.

Some of the outstanding swimmers of the meet included freshman Anna Hall, whose performance in the 200 butterfly earned her first place with a time of 2:22.38.

Similarly, freshmen Alexa Luecke and Teresa Draves secured second in the 1000 freestyle and the 100m freestyle (Luecke) as well as second in the 200 medley and the 200 breaststroke (Draves).

“Unfortunately, we came up short against a very talented Dickinson swim team who had depth throughout most of their events,” Luecke said. “Despite the loss everyone is working extremely hard to build on the work we put in during our train-

ing trip in Florida over break, and we are focused on finishing out the season strong and having a good showing at the Centennial Conference Finals.”

The swim teams will compete again on Saturday, Feb. 2 at home versus the Ursinus College Bears.
