Swim teams splits home meet against Drexel

Complete Results

VESTAL, N.Y. - Five Binghamton swimmers each won two individual events as the Binghamton swimming & diving teams split a dual meet with Drexel on Saturday afternoon at West Gym Pool. The women (3-4) won 153-85 while the men (2-4) came up short, losing 144-93.

"This was a good win for the women's team," head coach Patrice Back said. "We knew it would be tough but we came out and won several early events and things went our way from there."

For the women, senior Amy DeWitt (Mastic, N.Y.) junior Yun Qu (Hangzhou, China) and sophomore Laura Linek (Canandaigua, N.Y.) each won two events. DeWitt captured the 200 IM (2:18.36) and the 200 back (2:15.68), Qu won the 1000 (10:58.76) and the 200 fly (2:05.25) while Linek placed first in the 100 and 200 freestyle events with times of 55.03 and 1:56.82 respectively.

On the men's side, senior Chris McGuire (Essex, England) and junior Robert Kaczynski (Tychy, Poland) were both double winners. McGuire took the 200 breast (2:14.51) and the 1000 (10:11.29) while Kaczynski won the 200 free (1:48.05) and the 200 fly (2:00.22).

"Chris and Robert did not swim their normal events today so we knew they would be hard pressed to win twice," Back said. "For them to go out there and get the wins was great."

Binghamton returns to action in two weeks with a home dual meet against St. Bonaventure Jan. 24 at 1 p.m.
