Bearcats split dual meet with Boston University

Complete Results

VESTAL, N.Y.--Freshman Kaan Tayla (Ankara, Turkey), sophomore David Holmes (Doncaster, England) and seniors Robert Kaczynski (Tychy, Poland) and Huijue Cai (Shanghai, China) each won two individual events as the Binghamton swimming and diving teams split a dual meet against America East foe Boston University on Saturday afternoon at the Patricia A. Saunders Aquatic Center. The men (2-0) won 141-101 while the women (0-2) were defeated 169-79.

"The women swam faster then last week. They are still learning their events," head coach Patrice Back said. "The top men are swimming well. The whole team did their jobs. I am thrilled with the teams, they are swimming better right now than they did at this time last year. This is a good indicator of how we are improving."

Tayla was victorious with wins in the 200 free (1:44.93) and the 500 free (4:57.97). Holmes was triumphant in the 50 free (21.42) and the 100 free (47.04). Kaczynski captured in the 200 breast (2:13.40) and the 200 IM (1:59.41). Also with a win for the men was sophomore Brian Koizim (White Plains, N.Y.) in the 200 back (1:58.87).

Cai was the lone individual winner on the women's side, taking first in the 50 free (24.83) and the 100 free (54.65).

The Bearcats host Towson on Saturday at 1 p.m.
