Men's swimming and diving captures Senior Day tri-meet
Bearcats issue dominant performance in topping Stony Brook and Lafayette
Vestal, N.Y.-- Led by a trio of senior double event winners, the Binghamton men's swimming and diving team was victorious in tri-meet action over Stony Brook (94-45) and Lafayette (97-41) on Wednesday afternoon from the Patricia A. Saunders Aquatic Center.
The Bearcats swept both relays and took 12 of 16 overall individual events on their way to victory.
"Our senior men really wanted to put an exclamation point on their home careers, and they really did," said head coach Sean Clark. "It was a solid win over our in-state, conference foes. The Lafayette men are in a rebuilding phase, and their future could come in a hurry."
In the final home meet of their collegiate careers, seniors David Holmes (Doncaster, England), Brian Koizim (White Plains, N.Y.) and Trevor Stone (Windsor, N.Y.) were each double event winners for the Bearcats.
Holmes claimed gold in the 1,000-yard freestyle in a school and pool record time of 9:27.73 and the 50-yard freestyle event in a time of 21.30. Koizim won both the 100 (52.08) and 200 (1:53.13) backstroke events, while Stone took both the 100 (52.32) and 200 fly (1:58.45).
The trio, along with sophomore teammate Brenno Varanda (St.Petersburg, Fla.), also teamed up to capture the 200 medley relay in a time of 1:34.90. Varanda was also an individual winner in the 200-yard breaststroke (2:07.27).
Sophomore Brian Koralewski (Floral Park, N.Y.) was also a double event winner for BU, winning both the 100 (48.35) and 200 (1:46.32) freestyle events.
On the boards, sophomore Ryan Graham (Vestal, N.Y.) captured the 3-meter competition with 301.10 points.
The split moves the Bearcats' record to 5-2 in dual meets on the season.
The Bearcat men hit the waters of the Reilly Center Pool this Saturday, Jan. 20, at 1 p.m. when they travel to St. Bonaventure for dual meet action.
