[Full Results...]

VESTAL, N.Y. -- The Binghamton swimming and diving teams were sunk by visting Buffalo this afternoon. The women were downed 105-134 while the men lost 103-137.

Freshman Tin Wai Siu touched first in the 100 free (53.58) while junior Amanda Ciccone won the 200 IM (2:08.31) and in the process set a Bearcat record in the event. Also taking an individual race was freshman Melissa Lindahl who claimed first in the 200 back (2:10.52).

On the boards sophomore Morgan Neal placed third on the three-meter (190.95) and the one-meter (200.70).

"It's never fun to lose, but when you swim as well as you can and you perform better than you expected too it's hard to be disappointed…Our whole team had best times from seniors, best times from freshman. We swam great," said head coach Sean Clark after the meet.

For the men, freshman David Gleason won the 200 free (1:43.19) while claiming a close second place finish in the 100 free (47.84) and sophomore Joe Perez-Rogers won the 50 free (21.98).

On the boards freshman Justin Mattison took third on the one-meter (205.72) while senior Bob Nolte took third on the three-meter (223.27).

"Men's side, I want more. We lost a lot of close races. They beat our big guys, so we have to respect their program and their toughness."

The Bearcats are back in action this Saturday January 23rd against Colgate. The meet begins at 1 p.m.
