Xavier Swimming Drops Dual Meet At Louisville
Oct. 12, 2012
LOUISVILLE - The Xavier University men's and women's swim teams lost their season openers at Louisville this evening. XU's men's squad fell, 182-75, and the women's team lost, 183-73, to one of the top swimming program's in the country.
Kiernan McGeehan picked up a second-place finish in the men's 1,000-yard freestyle with a time of 9:48.69. On the women's side, Randi Windemuller picked up Xavier's other second-place finish in individual events with a time of 1:00.61 in the women's 100-yard butterfly.
Sam Conchuratt finished third in both the 100- and 200-yard butterfly. Also earning third-place finishes were Chad Thompson in the 200 back and Luke Johanns in the 50 free. On the women's side, Anne Frigo grabbed third in the 50-yard free.
"We swam against a really impressive Louisville team that Coach Albiero has turned into a national power," said head coach Brent MacDonald. "One of the most important things with early season meets is to get back to racing and exposing weaknesses that need to be improved. We certainly have a lot to work on and a short turnaround with University of Cumberlands tomorrow. There were some great relay swims and the freshman responded well to their first experience in a Division I college swimming setting."
Xavier is back in action tomorrow afternoon in the first home meet of the season at O'Connor Sports Center on Xavier's campus. The meet is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start.
