Complete Results

VESTAL, N.Y.--Sophomore David Holmes (Doncaster, England) and senior Robert Kaczynski (Tychy, Poland) each won two individual events but the Binghamton swimming and diving teams fell to Cornell in a 16-event dual meet on Wednesday evening at the Patricia A. Saunders Aquatic Center. The men (5-2) lost 172-120 while the women (1-7) were defeated 212-81. This was the first home loss of the season for the men.

"We knew we were going to have a tough meet against Cornell," head coach Patrice Back said. "Brian (Koizim), Kaan (Tayla) and Robert (Kaczynski) all had great swims today. The women's side also had some good swims. Nicole (Fulgieri) and Monica (Friedl) swam fast. Right now we are focusing on getting some training in for the conference championships."

Holmes won the 100 free (47.10) and the 200 fly (1:56.53). Kaczynski was triumphant in the 100 breast (59.48) and the 200 IM (1:57.53). Freshman Kaan Tayla (Ankara, Turkey) was victorious in the 50 free (21.20), breaking the pool record of 21.27. Also with a win for the men was sophomore Brian Koizim (White Plains, N.Y.) in the 200 back (1:57.45).

On the women's side junior Christine Carroll (Washingtonville, N.Y.) took second in both the 200 breast (2:30.36) and the 200 IM (2:26.97). Also taking second for the Bearcats was senior Lauren Katz (Little Neck, N.Y.) in the 100 fly (1:04.33), junior Nicole Fulgieri (New Hyde Park, N.Y.) in the 500 free (5:43.76) and freshman Samantha Lewis (Hopewell Junction, N.Y.) in the 200 back (2:22.73).
