BATES SWIMMING AND DIVING SWEEPS BABSON
LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College swimming and diving teams swept a dual meet with the Babson College Beavers today. The men were victorious 130-87.5, while the women took a 137-74 decision.
The men's meet was highlighted by a pair of record-setting performances by first-year athletes. In the second event of the day, first-year distance freestyler Dan Heneghan (Windsor Locks, Conn.) broke his own school record in the 1000-yard free with a time of 10:26.54. He had set the record earlier in the season against Wesleyan University. First-year diver Andrew Hastings (Weston, Mass.), who has already qualified for the NCAA championships in one-meter diving, set a school record in the three-meter event with a six-dive score of 290.90.
The women were paced by a pair of two-event winners. Senior Alice Palmer (Greensboro, N.C.) won the 100-free and the 100 breaststroke, while sophomore Gudrun Mirick (Chaska, Minn.) took the 200 and 500 freestyle. Sophomore Pamela Murchie (Westbrook, Maine) captured the 100 butterfly.
The women's team moves to 4-1 on the season, while the men are 3-2. Both teams are in action next Satruday when the Bobcats take on Colby College in Waterville.
