The Northeastern women, the fourth team present at the quad meet, were able to take wins against both Georga Mason and CofC, however they did fall to Towson University who remained undefeated throughout the entire competition.
Towson had the most successful individual showings as well with multiple swimmers coming home with more than one win. Matt Lowe was won of the most successful swimmers of the meet, coming home with big wins in the 1650, 500, and 200 yard butterfly.
His teammate, Nick Bereschi won the 100 (50.67) and 200 (1:49.76) backstrokes, and led-off the two medley relays which Towson eventually won.
The George Mason team didn’t do too badly either as they were able to come home with two individual wins from Sydney Fisher who took the 100 freestyle in 52.05 following her 50 freestyle win from earlier in the meet.
The George Mason divers also performed outstandingly, taking a podium sweep in the 3-meter event. The divers were led by Paul Helfgott followed by both Trevor Long and Sean Burstein to round out their three-for-three finish.
Taylor Ellis, a Northeastern swimmer, took home a big win in the 100 breaststroke. She faced off with Towson swimmer Jenna Van Camp, ultimately touching just 0.13 seconds ahead of her with a time of 1:03.22.
The Charleston men also had a win with sophomore Will Ryan taking down John Gartland of Towson by a decent amount in order to take the 200 breaststroke title in 203.29. Gartland finished way back in 2:04.81 to grab second.
There was no doubt that Towson demonstrated their dominance at the quad meet, and they’ll be back to competition very shortly as they’ll face George Washington University on Nov. 8th starting at 1:00 p.m.
