After a seven-week break from competition, the Binghamton University swimming and diving teams returned to action on Jan. 18. Hosting Colgate University at the Patricia A. Saunders Aquatic Center on Senior Day, the men earned a resounding 200-93 win while the women fell 167-114. Both teams lost the following day at St. Bonaventure University’s Reilly Center.
The men won 12 events against the Raiders, with senior Tim Cabasino and freshman Pat Kilgallen placing first in the 200 free and 100 fly, respectively. Cabasino’s time of 1:47.83 fell just a half-second short of the pool record.
The quartet of sophomore Alexi Corey, senior Devon Byrt and freshmen Tommy Cummings and Brian McKenna won the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:39.63.
Though the women didn’t find as much success, nine individual swimmers and divers grabbed second place in their events.
With the quick turnaround, the men lost 152-88 to St. Bonaventure while the women fell 145.5-96.5.
Kilgallen and Cummings notched first-place finishes in the 500 free and 200 breast, respectively. Cummings has now won an event in five consecutive dual matches.
For the women, sophomores Caitlin Kelly and Corinne Zotter placed first in the 50 free and 200 breast respectively while sophomore Imani Williams’ season-best score of 231.07 on the three-meter board resulted in a victory.
The Bearcats are set to take on Marist College at 1 p.m. this Saturday at the McCann Natatorium.
