BOSTON, Mass. -- The Binghamton swimming and diving teams completed the final day of the America East Conference Championships at the Boston University Aquatic Center. The men's team finished third with 586 points, behind Boston University (848.5) and men's champions UMBC (926.5). The women placed sixth place with 324.5 points just behind Stony Brook who finished with 331.5. Boston University won the women's side with 765 final points.

Sophomore Nolan Slesnick had the best finish of the final day for Binghamton, touching second in the 1650 free (15:53.71). In the 200 fly, freshman Josh Saccurato finished in sixth place (1:54.24). Also for the men, junior Jason Chen placed sixth in the 200 back (1:51.39), just ahead of freshman teammate David Gleason (1:52.10) who finished seventh.

For the women, two freshman grabbed seventh place finishes, Tin Wai Siu in the 200 fly (2:06.05) and Melissa Lindahl in the 200 back (2:07.48). Junior Amanda Ciccone also finished well, touching ninth in the 100 free (52.32).

On the boards, Binghamton kept up the strong diving and sophomore Jenna Easton took fourth place (417.70) in the one-meter diving while sophomore Morgan Neal placed sixth (409.80).

In the 400 free relay, the Binghamton men placed third and the women touched in fourth place.

"I don't think we could have swum any better. We are proving to be a top team on both sides. We've been performing up to my expectations," said head coach Sean Clark. "We swam awesome. We're a little disappointed we didn't catch Stony Brook on the women's side, but we sure made a valiant effort. I'm so incredibly proud of my team."
