Day 1

CANTON, Ohio – Swimmers were just getting warmed up on the first day of the Great Midwest/Mountain East Swimming & Diving Championships during Wednesday’s action inside the C.T. Branin Natatorium.

A total of nine events were completed as the first winners took their place on the podium for respective all-conference recognition in front of their peers.

All-conference honors for the Great Midwest includes first-team honorees as the highest finisher from the league with placement of second and third resulting in honorable mention status.

Four different conference championship meet records were shattered on Wednesday as the Mountain East Conference won the 1,000 yard freestyle (women’s) and 50 freestyle (men).

Findlay leads the team scoring on day one in both the men’s and women’s standings. The Oilers women accumulated 447 points while the men totaled 346. Hillsdale is second in the women’s scoring with 333 points while Tiffin is second in the men’s race with 242 points.

Findlay’s women won the 50 freestyle, 200 IM and the 200-yard medley relay. Junior Hanna Cederholm edged out Malone’s Denise Quentin following a close preliminary heat that separated the pair by just 0.27 of a second.

Speaking of razor-thin margins, the Oilers’ Amanda Stiegal recorded a NCAA “B” cut time in the 50 freestyle, breaking her own meet record by just 0.04 of a second.

The first UF relay grouping didn’t hold anything back as Christina McFarland, Cederholm, Katy Kouvaris and Stiegal, sped their way to another meet record in the 200 medley. The Oilers’ men also won with Trae Gulgin, Issac Stretch, Conner Whitaker and Trent Williams, less than one second from the program’s own conference championship record.

Tiffin crowned three men’s champions on day one, including freshman Miguel Arroyo Garcia winning the 200 IM and Nickolas Jefferson stealing the show in the 3-meter dive with a new conference overall and meet record.

Arroyo Garcia, a two-time conference athlete of the week, also hit the NCAA ‘B’ cut standard in the 200 IM with a time of 1:49.73.

TU’s Nick De Robles scored the Dragons third victory with a strong time in the 1,000 yard freestyle, a 40-lap event. He was less than three seconds off the meet record held by last year’s Great Midwest Men’s Swimmer of the Meet Ben Rath (Findlay).

Conference Championship Meet Records Broken:
Nickolas Jefferson (Tiffin – 3-Meter Diving)
Miguel Arroyo Garcia (Tiffin – 200 IM)
McFarland, Cederholm, Kouvaris, Stiegal (Findlay – 200-yard medley relay)
Amanda Stiegal (Findlay – 50-yard freestyle)

Day 2

CANTON, Ohio – Three programs crowned their very first event winners to highlight what was an exciting second day of the Great Midwest/Mountain East Swimming & Diving Championships on Thursday.

Malone (women’s 400 IM), Davis & Elkins (men’s 200 freestyle and Hillsdale (women’s 400 medley relay), all celebrated their first conference champs at the awards podium.

Defending team champion Findlay separated itself further from the pack in the team scoring, with both Oilers’ men’s and women’s program extending their respective leads with 11 events completed.

Tiffin had another impressive showing in the water as freshman Miguel Garcia Arroyo continued to play a starring role and Diamond Boyer won the first women’s diving event of the four-day meet.

Appropriately on Valentine’s Day, student-athletes were showing their teammates the love as the decibel levels from the crowd noise rose to what felt like record highs inside C.T. Branin Natatorium.

The atmosphere contributed to some exciting finishes, including sophomore Kaila Butterworth from host Malone. She was the Pioneers’ first conference champ in the 400 IM by less than half a second.

An exhausted Butterworth gave it her all in the pool and touched the wall in 4:37.01, just hours after swimming in the prelims.

In similar fashion, D&E sophomore Pedro Gaspar, last year’s Great Midwest Freshman of the Year, triumphed with an impressive win in the 200 yard free with the third-fastest time in conference history.

Gaspar beat out multiple conference champs that have already medaled on Day 1, including WV Wesleyan’s Arthur Assfeld and Tiffin’s Nick De Robles.

Hillsdale closed the evening with a combined team victory in the 400-yard medley relay. The foursome of Katherine Heeres, Anika Ellingson, Catherine Voisin and Suzanne De Tar, each represented the Chargers first conference champs.

Findlay’s dominance was on display in the 200 freestyle relays with both men’s and women’s teams sweeping. Garcia Arroyo won both the 400 IM and 100 butterfly, giving him three event wins in just two days.

The Dragons also held off Findlay in the 400-yard medley relay. Findlay’s Katy Kouvaris was the winner in the 100 butterfly, edging out some of her own teammates and another strong showing by Malone’s Denise Quentin (runner-up in 200 IM on Wednesday).

Day three of the G-MAC/MEC Championships resumes on Friday morning with preliminary competition starting at 10 a.m.

Day 3

CANTON, Ohio – Through 30 scored events, teams flexed their muscle for more broken meet records on the third day of the Great Midwest/Mountain East Swimming & Diving Championships on Friday.

Findlay is on the verge of repeating as both men’s and women’s meet champions with over 1,000 points in each of the updated team scoring.

The Oilers’ women have 1,452.5 points with Hillsdale in second sporting 1,194.5 points. The UF men have accumulated 1,133 points while Tiffin is currently the runner-up with 937 points.

The final day of the G-MAC/MEC Championships will include senior student-athlete recognition in the C.T. Branin Natatorium.

Tiffin’s Nick De Robles added another conference title to his credit with a 4:35.54 victory in the 500 freestyle. De Robles had already won the 1,000 freestyle.

Another Dragon, Christopher Hohenfeld, came through an individual win in the 100 breastroke as well.

Conference meet records were broken by both genders in the 100 backstroke courtesy of Findlay’s Christina McFarland (56.23) and Tiffin’s Jonah Sumfleth (49.96).

Hillsdale also celebrated itself individual conference champ as senior Anika Ellingson won the 100 breaststroke in 1:02.83. She was just eight hundredths of a second away from matching the meet record.

Host Malone pulled out a thrilling team victory in the women’s 800 freestyle relay as Denise Quentin, Abby Reynolds, Kaila Butterworth and Karly Bruce, all worked together in 7:49.19. It was Butterworth’s second conference event win after winning the 400 IM on Thursday.

Findlay’s men captured the 800 freestyle relay title to close the evening and give the Oilers 64 points to the team score. Trent Williams, Mark Billeaud, Tyler Endecott and Tucker Stocker, swam a 6:57.58.

The Oilers were also boosted by Katy Kouvaris and her win in the 200 butterfly. Kouvaris has accounted for 88 points through three days of the competition, ranking second only behind Fairmont State’s Courtney Deem and her three event titles.

Tiffin’s Miguel Garcia Arroyo sustained his dominance in the meet with a fourth event victory, this time in the 200 butterfly. He has tallied over 100 team points for the Dragons so far, tops among all male competitors.

Day 4

INDIANAPOLIS – The Findlay women were officially crowned Great Midwest/Mountain East Swimming & Diving team champions following the conclusion of the four-day meet on Saturday in the C.T. Branin Natatorium.

The Oilers held a wire-to-wire lead over the rest of the field, consisting of a combined 11 institutions from the two leagues to capture the coveted trophy for the second year in a row.

Findlay won 10 total events, including three of the four relay offerings, and contributed to five new conference championship meet records.

Individual award winners were voted upon by the coaches as four different standouts were officially recognized at the end of the meet.

For the league, it was a promising step taken forward as Hillsdale and Malone each won multiple events. More balance across the awards podium made for an exciting 2019 meet as student-athletes battled for all-conference honors.

Junior Hanna Cederholm and senior Katy Kouvaris were two of the ringleaders for UF’s overwhelming point total with 1,935.5 amassed as a team. Cederholm was a three-time meet champ, including defending her title in the 200 IM and winning the 200 breaststroke.

Cederholm has won a grand total of eight events in the first two G-MAC/MEC Championships.

Kouvaris received plenty of swimmer of the meet consideration with two new conference championship meet records in 100 butterfly and 200 butterfly. She also contributed to Oilers’ victories in the 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay. Kouvaris and UF’s 200 medley relay unit set a new meet record with a time of 1:43.25.

Sydney Zimdars successfully repeated as the 1,650 champion and freshman Christina McFarland was named the G-MAC/MEC Women’s Freshman of the Meet after being a part of three winning races, including a new meet record in the 100 backstroke. Senior Amanda Stiegal also set a new conference meet record in the 50 free.

Hillsdale also featured two of the meet’s top scorers with sophomore Katherine Heeres winning the 200 backstroke and senior NCAA qualifier Anika Ellingson carving out a signature win in the 100 breaststroke.

Both Chargers student-athletes helped Hillsdale win the 400 medley relay and as the team runner-up, G-MAC/MEC Women’s Coach of the Year honors went to Kurt Kirner.

Malone’s Kaila Butterworth and Denise Quentin each won a pair of events. Quentin, just a sophomore, was impressive as she finished third among all swimmers for point totals accumulated.

Tiffin’s Diamond Boyer was also named the G-MAC/MEC Women’s Diver of the Meet after winning both 1 meter and 3-meter heights.

Fairmont State’s Courtney Deem led all competitors with 128 points combined as she won the 1,000 free, 200 free and 500 free. She was named G-MAC/MEC Women’s Swimmer of the Meet for the second consecutive year.
