The UIndy swimming & diving teams kicked off the 2017-18 season Thursday night, making the short trek downtown to take on IUPUI at the Natatorium. The Greyhound women were edged, 129.5-113.5, while the men lost by a 149-90 final.
The Greyhounds garnered 12 event wins on the night, including five individual and two relay victories on the women’s side.
“I’m very happy with the performances for our first meet,” said Head Coach Jason Hite. “We had some big wins on the women’s side and battled really well against a team that almost doubled our score a year ago. We saw serious progress for the women.
“One the men’s side, we had solid wins from a couple of the guys and from our medley relay. The meet wasn’t as close as we hoped, but overall it was a good first step on our season.”
Freshman Krystal Caylor had a stellar debut in her first-ever collegiate meet. The Springfield, Mo., native earned a pair of individual wins while helping the Hounds to a victory in the 400 freestyle relay. She posted the program’s fourth-fastest 200 IM time at 2:06.84, recorded a 52.57 in the 100 free, and swam the leadoff leg ahead of Mary Niklarz, Stefanie Haholiades and Malvina Shoukri for a winning time of 3:34.09 in the 400 free relay.
The Greyhounds also won the 200 medley relay, as Leger, Konstantinidi, Sotia Neophytou and Haholiades combined for a 1:47.90.
Brazilian countrymen Rodrigo Codo Berti and Guilherme Zavaneliled the way for the men. Both earned two individual victories apiece, with Berti winning the 200 back (1:53.17) and 200 IM (1:51.86), while Zavaneli seized both the 100 (45.70) and 200 free (1:38.56).
