SWIMMERS SPLIT WITH JOHNS HOPKINS
The UMBC swimming squads faced a powerful Division III Johns Hopkins team and came away with a split on the Homewood campus. The men extended their record to 9-1 with a 116-91 score, while the women (6-5) were edged, 107-98. The men lost the first two events, but then took command of the meet, winning six straight events. Mehdi Addadi (50 free/200 fly) and Evan Patrick (200 free/100 free) won two events each to spark the Retrievers. Josh Farley also captured the 200 individual medley. For the women, the meet came down to the final event, as it was tied at 94-all entering the 400 freestyle relay. But the Blue Jays edged UMBC in that event, and prevailed by the narrow nine-point margin. Individual winners for UMBC included Jessica Prosen (1000 freestyle), Holly Wittsack (200 fly), Astrid Sperling (200 backstroke), and Lindsey Prather (200 breaststroke). Both teams travel into Virginia for meets vs. William & Mary and Old Dominion this weekend.
