ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Loyola University Maryland women's swimming and divinv team opened the 2018 Patriot League Championships with a school record flourish, and the Greyhounds men's and women's squads both stand in fifth place after the first day of the meet at the U.S. Naval Academy's Lejeune Hall.
The women's team got off to a great start on Wednesday as the Greyhounds finished third in the 200-medley relay, setting a school record. Sophomores Emily Koegl, Devin Cronin and Annie Hayburn teamed up with freshman Megan Dickey to post a record time of 1:42.34. Their time shattered a nine-year old record of 1:45.04 set by Mary Henkels, Kim Krzaczek, Caitlin Cassidy and Lauren Mari.
After two events, the women's team is fifth with 58 points, trailing Navy (80), Lehigh (64), Army West Point (62) and Boston University (60).
The men's 200-medley relay team took sixth place as Alec Speradino, Ben Cono, Connor Rutigliano and Patrick Clisham combined for a time of 1:30.75, less than a second off the school record.
In the 800-free relay, the Greyhounds took eighth place. Colin Anderson, Brandon Kolar, John Sakovich and Chris Cary posted a time of 6:54.2. The men's team is fifth after three events with 67 points. Navy leads the men's competition with 132 points. Army West Point stands second with 107 points, just ahead of Boston University (72). Bucknell (71) is fourth, barely ahead of Loyola.
