Xavier Swimming Completes Saturday's Prelims at A-10 Championships
Musketeers Break Three School Records


The Xavier men's and women's swim teams continued their record setting weekend at the 2003 Atlantic 10 Swimming and Diving Championships as they set three school records in Saturday morning's preliminaries.

Junior Molly Moeller (Fort Wayne, Ind./Homestead) got Xavier off to a good start in the first event of the day. Moeller finished with the seventh best time in the 200 Backstroke (2:07.97).

The first record to fall was in the women's 200 Breaststroke, Danielle Miller (Middletown, Ohio/Lakota East) came in at 2:24.43 and that was good enough for the third best qualifying team. Xavier will also send Becky Faust (St. Louis, Mo./Cor Jesu Academy) to the finals as she finished in seventh with a time of 2:26.03.

In the 200 Butterfly, junior Janet Heil (Fort Mitchell, Ky./Notre Dame Academy) broke her own school record with the fourth best qualifying time at 2:08.48.

Junior Angie Hinrichs (Cincinnati/McAuley), the defending champion in the 100 Freestyle, will defend her title this evening as she advanced with a time of 52.71.

The women's 400 Freestyle Relay of Heather Greidanus (Pewaukee, Wisc./Arrowhead), Danielle Miller, Sarah Brown (Raleigh, N.C./Cardinal Gibbons), and Angie Hinrichs closed out the preliminaries in strong fashion with a time of 3:35.48 as they grabbed the fifth qualifying spot.

On the men's side, freshman Kyle Hawley (Appleton, Wisc./Appleton North) also set the record in the 200 Butterfly with a time of 1:54.32. Hawley will move on to this evening's finals as he finished seventh in the preliminaries.

Once again the duo of David Janszen and John Janszen, both graduates of Cincinnati's St. Xavier, proved to be a great combination for the Musketeers. David and John will both advance to the finals in the 200 Backstroke as they finished third (1:52.81) and sixth (1:54.49).

Sophomore Matt Young (Mt. Washington, Ky./St. Xavier) will also advance in the 200 Breaststroke with the fifth qualifying time of 2:08.46.

Xavier will return to action this evening at 6:30 p.m. for the conclusion of the 2003 Atlantic 10 Swimming and Diving Championships.
