Swimming and Diving

The University of Miami swimming and diving team fell to fellow ACC newcomer No.24 Virginia Tech 186-112 in War Memorial Pool Saturday afternoon. The Hurricanes are now 1-2 overall and 0-2 in the ACC.

The meet marked the first meeting between the two schools as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The Hurricanes took first place in seven of the meet’s 16 events but suffered under Virginia Tech’s depth. The Hokies touched 1-2 in five events.

The Hurricanes were led once again by senior Katalin Ferenczi and freshman Lauren Shue. Ferenczi touched first in both the 100-yard backstroke (57.92) and the 200-yard backstroke (2:04.22). She also placed second in the 400-yard individual medley in a time of 4:36.55. Classmate Lindsay Knapp placed third in the 100-yard backstroke in a time of 2:04.22.

Shue took first in both the 1000-yard and 500-yard freestyle events, touching with times of 10:15.35 and 5:01.57, respectively. Sophomore Tara Erwin touched third in the 1000-yard freestyle in a time of 10:48.98.

Also placing first was sophomore Nancy Gajos who won the 200-yard fly at 2:07.27.

Sophomore diver Heather Bounds swept the diving events for the second time in as many days. She scored 237.96 on the 1-meter board and 282.90 on the 3-meter board.

The Hurricanes return to action Nov. 5 when they host interstate rival Florida Atlantic at 4:00 p.m.
