This past Saturday the Fairfield swimming and diving team took NJIT and wrapped them up with a bow on top.
This comes as one of the last few wins that Head Coach Bill Farley needs in order to break the school record for wins under a single coach.
The men’s side dominated the Highlanders with a score of 116-81.
Once again, the divers were a focus for the team, as both Russ Laub ’07 and Taylor Stecko ’10 took high scores in the 1 meter and 3 meter events.
Also sharing the spotlight was transfer student Drew Kingman ’09. In his first ever meet with the Stags, Kingman notched a 2:16:28 in the 200m individual medley, a 1:10:46 in the 100m breaststroke, and contributed to a time of 1:54:73 in the 200m relay. All three of these times broke Fairfield school records.
Other big names for the men included Sean McGonigle ’08, who took first place in the 200m free and the 400m free, Matt Rimmer ’09 with a 100m backstroke win, and Rob Divine ’08 with a 800m free win.
For the women, big winners were found all around. Brittany Hunter ’07 again took the lead for the team with two big victories in the 200m freestyle and the 100m butterfly.
The 50m free, 800m free, and 200m individual medley were also big events for the girls, taken by Jennifer Masi ’07, Jennifer Curtis ’10 and Sarah Dent ’08, respectively.
The women divers, Katharine Yee ’08 and Jennifer Silva ’08, showed well with high marks in the 1 meter and 3 meter events.
