Men's Swimming wins fourth straight

The Eagles continued their undefeated season on Saturday with a 125.5-111.5 victory over East Carolina during Senior Day at Reeves Athletic Complex. Saturday was the Eagles final home match as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association.

Ethan Bassett led the Eagles with two victories in the 1,000m and the 500m freestyle events.

The Eagles dropped their third match of the season against ECU on Saturday with a 91.5-141.5 loss. The women's team took the 400m relay and gained victories from Rebecca Santos and Jessica Lindstrom.

Swimming and Diving will complete their CAA season this week with a dual meet against Old Dominion University, William and Mary and the University of North Carolina-Wilmington.

Adam Schryver picked up two victories during Friday's diving competition in the one- and three-meter springboard events. Anne Girvin took third in the three-meter springboard on the women's side.

Although the men's squad is in first place in the CAA, they will not be able to compete for a team championship in during the CAA championships in February. The team is not allowed to compete because of a decision by CAA officials to keep AU out of championship tournaments because AU broke its CAA contract in deciding to move to the Patriot League at the beginning of the next academic year.

The CAA's decision does not bar individual athletes from competing for CAA championships.
