    Men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams compete at conference championships

    The Stony Brook swimming and diving teams traveled to Boston University to take part in the America East Championship meet at the Boston University Aquatic Center, a four-day event from Thursday through Sunday.

    The men’s team completed five events on the first day and achieved second place overall and the women fifth.

    The first event of the day was the one-meter diving competition. Freshman Kyle Gannon took fifth place with a season-best score of 239.55. Freshman Kaleim Reid also placed in the event with ninth.

    The men’s 200 medley relay team, consisting of freshman Larry Barbosa, junior Daniel Wenzel, senior Mark Anderson and senior Ed McIntyre, won second place with a time of 1:34.58 while the women’s team took sixth place in the same event even though it swam a season record time of 1:46.84.

    Both the men and women also participated in the 800 freestyle relay. The men’s team achieved third place with a time of 6:53.27 and the women fourth place with a time of 7:28.78.
