Stags take 5th and 7th in the MAAC

This weekend’s MAAC Swimming and Diving Championship, held in Baltimore, Maryland, came to a close with the Fairfield falling considerably below the top spot.
Although not for lack of effort, the Stags only managed to place 5th out of 10 on the women’s side and a lowly 7th out of 8 on the men’s.
In spite of the team’s mediocre performance as a whole, several individuals stepped up and made great strides in their own events.
Once again Drew Kingman ’09 shined, ripping his 10th school record to pieces with a time of 2:09:62 in the 200 breaststroke. He also worked in conjunction with Matt Rimmer, Matt Kozlowski and Tom McGonigle to break the school record in the 400 yard free relay.
For the women, Brittany Hunter ’07 took third in three different events while Liz Lawlor ’08 snagged a 5th place finish in the 200 breaststroke and Jennifer Masi ’07 took 8th in the 100 free.
Kingman, Hunter, Lawlor and Masi all qualified in their respective events for the ECAC Championships, which will be held next weekend.
