UD Swimmers Place Well at CAA Pod Meet

Posted:

NEWARK, DE -- The University of Delaware men's and women's swimming
and diving teams combined to capture four first place finishes and eight
second place showings as hosts of the two-day Colonial Athletic
Association Pod Meet that concluded Sunday at Delaware's Rawstrom Pool.

Delaware hosted men's and women's teams from UNC Wilmington and William
& Mary and the women's team from James Madison. It was Delaware's first
competition since Oct. 13 as the Blue Hens' had an off-week on Oct. 20
and the Oct. 27 dual vs. Old Dominion was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy.

The Delaware women went 1-2 during the meet as the Hens defeated UNCW
200-153 but fell to James Madison 231-117 and to  William & Mary
194-153. On the men's side, Delaware went 0-2 as the Hens suffered
setbacks of 217-136 to UNCW and 191-156 to William & Mary. The UNCW men
have won each of the last 11 CAA Championship titles while James Madison
is the defending CAA champion on the women's side.

The Blue Hens got big efforts out of their divers as Luke Winkler
(3-meter) and Brian Coonce (1-meter) each captured men's titles with
Winkler also taking a second in the 1-meter and Patrick McCann taking
second in the three-meter.

The other Delaware champions during the meet were Ryan Roberts winning
the men's freestyle (1:41.69) and Amy Stelmaszyk taking the women's 200
butterfly crown (2:07.77).

The Blue Hen men also got second place finishes from the 400 freestyle
relay team of Sihan Liu, Matthew Marquez, Roberts, and Paul Gallagher
(3:06.46), Roberts in the 200 backstroke (1:49.70), Alex Tooley in the
400 individual medley (4:07.84), and Zachary Lowe in the 200 butterfly
(1:55.76). Roberts was also third in both the 200 medley relay (1:34.44)
and 100 backstroke (51.92) while Paul Gallagher was third in the 100
freestyle (46.69) and 200 medley relay (1:34.44).

The Delaware women's also got second place showings from the 400
freestyle relay unit of Dominique Montoya, Maggie Tracy, Courtney Raw,
and Morgan White (3:32.93), and from Megan Northshield in the 200
butterfly (2:08.85). Raw also placed third in the 200 medley relay
(1:48.06), 100 backstroke (58.25), and 200 backstroke (2:06.37) while
Kaitlin Wolla was third in the 200 medley relay (1:48.06) and 200
butterfly (2:09.33) and diver Kristina Congdon was third in both the
1-meter (262.05 points) and 3-meter (270.55) events.

Both Delaware teams will return to action next Saturday, Nov. 10, as the
Blue Hens host Rider and La Salle in a tri-meet at Rawstrom Pool.
