Binghamton swimming heads to America East Championships

VESTAL, N.Y.--The Binghamton swimming & diving teams will head to Baltimore, Md. this weekend for the 15th America East Swimming & Diving Championships. The meet will be held at the UMBC Natatorium at the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County for a three-day event, Feb. 18-20.

The men's team, which took second last season, is led by senior Robert Kaczynski (Tychy, Poland), who won two individual events at last season's meet, including a conference-record performance in the 100-yard breaststroke (56.62). He also won the 200 breaststroke for the second year in a row (2:05.45).

"Robert is looking at breaking both his breaststroke records this weekend," head coach Patrice Back said. "He will swim great; he always does at the conference meet."

On the women's side, senior Huijue Cai (Shanghai, China) is the top returner from a Binghamton squad that tied for fifth at last season's meet. She took fourth in the 50 free (24.41) in last season's meet.

"Huijue is ready and looking good as well," Back said. "With this being her senior year she is looking to make an impact and see how close she can come to an 'A' cut."

Northeastern is the defending champion and favorite in the women's meet while UMBC is the favorite and defending champion in the men's meet.

"The women have a tough conference. Our goals are to get them back at night and to go after Vermont and Maine," Back said. "The men are ready to race; they are going in with a great attitude and ready to set some records."
