Virginia Swimming And Diving Teams Sweep Maryland
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Junior Jason Webb (Philadelphia, Pa.), and freshmen Doak Finch (Southern Pines, N.C.), Kyle McDuffie (Tallahassee, Fla.) and Kori Forster (New Orleans, La.) each won two events Saturday afternoon (Feb. 8) as the University of Virginia men's and women's swimming and diving teams defeated the University of Maryland in their final meets of the regular season.
The men's team won 169-114 to finish the regular season with an overall record of 5-6 and a 2-3 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The UVa women defeated Maryland 175-123 for their fourth consecutive conference victory. The women's team finished the regular season with an overall record of 8-2 and a 4-1 record in the ACC.
For the UVa men, Webb captured first place in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:43.16 and the 500-yard freestyle in a time of 4:36.90. Webb joined D.J. Gallagher, Shamek Pietucha and Tom Woodworth on Virginia's victorious 200-yard medley relay squad which broke the Cole Field House Pool record with a time of 1:33.54. Finch registered his best time of the season in winning the 200-yard backstroke, finishing in 1:50.69. He also finished first in the 200-yard butterfly (1:49.58). McDuffie continued to perform well in the diving events, winning both the one and three meter competitions for the second consecutive meet. McDuffie tallied a score of 227.48 on the one-meter board and 234.23 on the three-meter board.
For the Virginia women, Forster won the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:06.76. She captured the 100-yard butterfly in 57.43, knocking nearly a half-second off her previous season best time. Emily Carrig (Richmond, Va.) shattered both the pool record and her best time of the season in winning the 200-yard freestyle in a time of 1:51.10. The Cavaliers' 200-yard freestyle relay squad of Emily Trakas, Meghan McCubbins, Valerie Zammitti and Sharon Riedlinger played a big role in the Virginia victory as they won that event (1:36.66) and each swimmer also won an individual event. Trakas captured first place in the 100-yard freestyle (52.75), McCubbins won the 500-yard freestyle (24.09), Zammitti finished first in the 200-yard butterfly in a season best time of 2:04.10 and Riedlinger won the 500-yard freestyle (5:01.68). Paige Scheurich (Annandale, Va.) won the 1,000-yard freestyle in 10:17.52, nine seconds under her previous best time.
