N.Y. -- The Binghamton men's and women's swimming and diving

afternoon. The women defeated the University of Vermont 124-118,
while both the men and the women fell to Boston University 106-135
and 99-138 respectively.

Freshman Josh Saccurato was the other Bearcat on the men's team to touch first, taking the 200 fly (1:59.73) while placing fourth in the 200 IM (2:02.15). Sophomore Joe Perez-Rogers touched second in the 50 free (22.07) and the 100 free (48.36).

"On the women's side, it was unbelievable. From top to bottom, the team was ready to go. They were excited and they knew it was going to be close. Everybody had a role, this was one of those meets where it was so close it matters who is scoring the fifth place points. We were down five points going into the last relay; whoever won that race would win the meet between Vermont and Binghamton. I'm impressed," said head coach Sean Clark after the meet. "For the men we knew it would be a tough go, we've got a lot of young guys. We swam well but they are more experienced. We've got a ways to go."
The Bearcat men and women hit the road and travel to take on UMass next Saturday, November 7 at 1 p.m.
