Swimming & Diving Earns Split At Clark

WORCESTER, Mass.—The Babson College swimming & diving teams continued their strong start on Saturday, winning 15 events and splitting their respective races against Clark University at the Kneller Center Pool. The men cruised to their second straight win, topping the Cougars, 168-63, while the women's team was beaten 158-74.

The men were dominant on their side of the competition for the second consecutive weekend, winning 12 of the 13 events. Junior Dominick Tocci (Brooklyn, N.Y.) and first-year Brock Donnelly (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) finished first and second in both the 1-meter and 3-meter diving events to earn 26 points for the Beavers. Sophomore An Truong (West Roxbury, Mass.) once again won a pair of events, claiming a 60-second victory in the 1000-yard freestyle, before taking the 500 free.

First-year Bill Kim (McLean, Va.) picked up the first two individual victories of his career in the 200 individual medley, where he bested teammate Austen Noh (San Jose, Calif.) by .08 of a second, and the 100-yard backstroke. Noh won the 100-yard breaststroke, while senior Isaac Breen-Franklin (Severna Park, Md.) triumphed in both the 100- and 200-yard freestyle, winning the later for the second time this season.

On the women's side, junior Erica Riccardi (Los Angeles, Calif.) continued where she left off last Saturday, winning both the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke for the second time this season. The 400-yard freestyle relay team comprised of sophomores Becca Greenberg (Beverly, Mass.), Meghan Rowledge (Scotia, N.Y.), and Paige Sullivan, and first-year Fernanda Espinosa (Coral Gables, Fla.) also picked up a victory.

Junior Kendall Ford (Geneva, Ill.), who won three races last weekend, finished second in both the 500- and 1000-yard freestyle against the Cougars. Senior Lily Yie (Longmont, Colo.) also posted a second-place result in the 100 breaststroke.

Both the men's and women's team will be back in action next Saturday in a 1 p.m. meet against WPI. In addition to facing the hosts, the men will take on Brandeis while the women will face both Brandeis and Smith.
