Cavaliers Sweep Rowan in Dual Meet
Cavaliers Take Top Two Places in Each Contested Event
Glassboro, NJ - Virginia's men's and women's swimming and diving teams swept Rowan today in meets held in Glassboro, NJ. The Cavalier men defeated the Profs 47-33 while their female counterparts handled the Rowan squad 47-36. Both Virginia teams jumped out to a 47-5 lead before swimming the rest of the races as exhibitions.
In the women's competition, the Cavaliers took all three medalist honors in the first five individual events while taking the first two places in the 200 medley relay. Sharon Reidlinger (Laurel, MD) won the 500 Free, Meghan Iffland (Wilmington, DE) was victorious in the 100 Free, and Julie Gehm (Richmond, VA) won the 50 Free. Other winners for the Cavaliers included Emily Carrig (Richmond, VA) in the 200 Individual Medley and Rebecca Cronk (Charlottesville, VA) in the 100 Fly. The Cavaliers also competed in other races and recorded meet-best times in each of the events but their scores were not counted towards the team score as the meet was decided after the first six events. Among these exhibition winners were Meg McCubbins (Richmond, VA)--100 Back; Laura Sullivan (Sarasota, FL)--200 Free; and Kori Forster (New Orleans, LA).
The men's competition was also decided after six events, but two Cavaliers were able to win two events. Shamek Pietucha (Edmonton, Alberta) won the 50 Free and Graeme Leiser (Raleigh, NC) was victorious in the 100 Free. Both Leiser and Pietucha, along with Michael Renshaw (Jacksonville, FL) and D.J. Gallagher (Manhasset, NY) won the 200 Medley Relay. Other winners for the Cavaliers included Jamie Grimes (Olney, MD) in the 50 Free, Ryan McGeary (Chester Springs, PA) in the 200 Individual Medley, and Michael Fuller (Richmond, VA) in the 100 Butterfly. As in the women's meet, Virginia swimmers swam the rest of the races in exhibition and recorded meet-best times but their wins were not counted towards the team score. Among these swimmers were Pietucha (100 Back), Fuller (200 Free), and Gallagher (100 Breast). The men's 200 Freestyle Relay also outswam Rowan but the team of Doak Finch (Southern Pines, NC), McGeary, Brian Hicks (Woodbridge, VA) and Casey Hughes (Richmond, VA) swam as an exhibition.
The Cavaliers return to the water this Saturday as they host ACC-Rival N.C. State. The meet against the Wolfpack is scheduled to begin at noon.
