Orange Edges White in Swimming and Diving Intrasquad Meet

Sept. 29, 2007

The men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams held their annual Orange and White meet on Saturday morning at McHugh Natatorium. Team Orange, led by assistant coach Steve Phillips, edged assistant coach Lance Asti’s White team 254.5-249.5 in the final competitive tune-up before both teams open against Virginia Tech on October 7.

The athletes competed in events not typically seen in meets in order to keep the athletes competitive and keep everything fresh. The Orange team won, in part due to their sweep of all four relay events.

Said head coach Chris Ip, “We were very pleased with what we saw today. We were able to see the freshman in competition and we saw some very surprising and competitive results. It was a very loose meet, but we were able to see how some of the off-season work has been paying off.”

There were some pleasant surprises, as two freshmen were able to win individual events. In addition, junior Michelle Parkhurst recorded three wins for the white team, as did senior Adam Farnham.

On the boards, senior Dani Kazilionis and Stepahnie Fura split the one- and three-meter diving events. David Giambra defeated Marco Raye for the White team on both boards. Each diver only performed three dives, but will complete six in competitions.

The Tigers will open their season on Sunday, October 7 against Virginia Tech at 11:00 a.m. at McHugh Natatorium.
