INDIANAPOLIS – After 201 days since last year’s exhilarating NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships, the Greyhounds have a plethora of reasons to be excited for this season. The UIndy swimming & diving teams showed these reasons with an emphatic showing Thursday night, kicking off with a dual-meet against their downtown Division I rivals, IUPUI. The Greyhound women fell in a valiant effort 142-101, while the men dominated with a score of 143-100.
“It was a good and solid beginning to the year,” said fourth-year head coach Jason Hite. “We got a win on the men’s side, and although we didn’t quite pull it out on the women’s side, we had some great races and some good competition from IUPUI.”
Overall, the Greyhounds won a combined total of 15 events out of the 26 available (nine for the men, six for the women). Victor Antonon, Rodrigo Codo Berti, Laura Boardman, Krystal Caylor, Adam Rosipal, and Guilherme Zavaneli each won multiple events on the day.
The men kicked off their first race in a thrilling 1-2 finish in the 400 Medley Relay, as Berti, Jan Zuchowicz, Ante Lucev, and Antonon clocked at a 3:23.68. The B-relay of Daniel Bouhlel, TJ Leseure, Antonio Milin, and Vitor Botana finished for second at a 3:27.49.
The Greyhound women, led by sophomore duo Caylor and Boardman, started collecting wins early as well. Boardman jumped ahead in the 1000 Free, touching first with a time of 10:27.59. She later won the 500 Free on a solid 5:08.81 swim. Caylor collected her first win on the new season in the 200 IM, where she placed a 2:08.72 time on the Natatorium scoreboard. Shortly after, she stepped up in the 100 Free to steal the show on a :52.14 swim.
Payton Staman and Josh Zylstra led the way for UIndy’s diving squad, showing that they are ready for a third consecutive All-American season. Staman placed second overall in a field of nine on the 1-meter, totaling 290.7 points. Zylstra was right behind him in the third spot, as he racked up a grand total of 286.88 points.
With 15 different victors, both the men & the women showed reason to shine. Below is a complete list of all the winners:
