Swimming And Diving Drops Tough Meet Against Towson

Jan. 28, 2006


TOWSON, Md. - Despite three individual victories from junior Ryan Reeser, the Greyhound men's swimming and diving team suffered a tough 118-109 non-conference setback against Towson University at the Tigers' Burdick Pool on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Tiger women's team finished the regular season with a 139-104 victory over the Greyhounds as Towson won eight of the 13 events in the meet.

Reeser finished first in the 100 free with a time of :47.64 in addition to his wins in the 200 free (1:43.57) and the 500 free (4:49.14).

Sophomore Jon Sheffield was a part of both the 200 medley and 200 free relay teams, which finished first for the Greyhounds.

Senior Jayme Adams helped the Greyhound women in the loss against Towson by finishing first in the 100 free (:55.54) and also swimming a leg in Loyola's victorious 200 free relay team. Junior Michelle Ryan earned first place in the 100 fly (1:01.92) while freshman Victoria Kamauff took first place in the 200 individual medley while recording the third fastest time in the 500 free, finishing in fourth place with a time of 5:17.41.

Junior Megan Sterback took both diving events for the Greyhounds, scoring 231.30 points in the three-meter event while adding 223.72 points in the one-meter event.

"I was very pleased with the swims today," Loyola Coach Brian Loeffler said. "We had many season best times, as well as a top three all time finish by Tori in the 500 free. We will look to have a strong finish next week against Iona."

The Greyhounds return to action next Saturday when they host Iona College at the Mangione Aquatic Center in the regular season finale beginning at 10:00 a.m. It will be the final regular season meet for nine Greyhound seniors. "I hope we can finish the dual meet year on a winning note for our seniors," Loeffler said.
