Xavier Swimming Faced Tough Louisville Squad
Oct. 11, 2013
"We always look forward to swimming a nationally ranked opponent this early in the season," said head coach Brent MacDonald. "It helps our team to really focus and be on top of our game right from the beginning of the season. With 17 freshmen we are still continuing to learn how our team responds in a meet environment. So far they have shown a great ability to step up to the challenge."
Strader (4:47.17) and McGeehan (4:55.32) also faired well in the 500 free, finishing second and third, respectively. Xavier also had the third-fastest time in the 200 IM. Chad Thompson swam the race in 1:56.92.
Stewart (2:08.36) later picked up a third-place finish in the 200 backstroke. She was followed by Jacquelyn Misanik, who touched fourth in 2:10.45.
Xavier will travel to Williamsburg, Ky., for a 2 p.m. match against Cumberlands.
