CINCINNATI - The Xavier University men's and women's swimming team swam past Tiffin in the squads' first meet in nearly two weeks. The men won with a score of 81-36, while the women were victorious, 78-28.

Xavier dominated the relays, taking the top three spots in the women's 200 medley relay and the top two on the men's side. The meet closed with both teams sweeping the top three positions in the 200 free relay.

Taylor Jach picked up the first individual win on the women's side, taking the 1000 free. From there, the floodgates opened. Mackenna Rife won the 200 free, Emily Wagner claimed the 100 back, Haley Dresner finished first in the 100 breaststroke and Lynn Brotherton took the 200 fly.

The wins didn't stop for the women. Claire Brolsma (50 free), Carolyn Stewart (100 free), Olivia Wilkes (500 free) and Heidi Turner (200 IM) also picked up victories. Wegner (200 back) and Turner (200 IM) both won a second event in the meet.

The men were just as dominant, with Nick Strader (1000 free), Chad Thompson (200 free), Arthur Smith (100 back) and Carter Clark (100 breast) winning the first four individual events. Clark (100 free), Thompson (200 back) and Strader (500 free) later won a second event. Erik Biernat got in the win column, taking the 100 fly.

Xavier's women's team will be back in the pool on Saturday, Nov. 16, with a 1:00 p.m. meet against Butler.
