First-year diver meets NCAA qualifying mark

WORCESTER, Mass. - The Bates College swimming and diving teams got the season off to a big start, sweeping Clark University. The meet was highlighted by first-year diver Andrew Hastings (Weston, Mass.), who met the NCAA qualifying standards in both the one- and three-meter diving events in his first collegiate meet.

Hastings scored a 270.1 in the 1-meter event and missed the school record in the 3-meters by less than five points with a score of 277.80. He needs to exceed the qualifying marks of 265 in the one-meter and 275 in the three-meter once more before the end of the season to earn a berth at the NCAA Championships. The Bobcats had two other multiple-event winners on the afternoon. First-year Dan Hennigan (Windsor Locks, Conn.), who took the 200- and 500-yard freestyle (1:55.90 and 5:13.27), while sophomore Mike Jensen (Manchester, N.H.) captured the 100- and 1,000-yard freestyle events (50.71 and 10:58.78), as Bates won every race but one.

On the women's side, the Bobcats produced the only three-time winner of the afternoon. Sophomore Gudrun Mirick (Chaska, Minn.) swept the freestyle sprints, taking the 50-yards (26.62), 100-yards (57.78) and 200-yards (2:04.54), including taking the 200 and 50 in consecutive races. Senior diver Joanne Murphy (West Hartford, Conn.) was the Bobcats' only other multi-event winner, taking the one-meter with a score of 170.85 and the three-meters with a score of 185.20.
