Senior Day Moved to Friday
Feb. 4, 2010
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Dual meet action between Maryland and Georgetown originally slated for Saturday has been pushed up to Friday due to the likelihood of severe winter weather in the College Park area this weekend.
Maryland will battle the Hoyas at noon on Friday at Eppley Recreation Natatorium. The Terps will be celebrating Senior Day with a short ceremony prior to the first race.
Seniors Aleksandar Damjanic, Ryan Greene, Brian Honore, Kevin Reardon and Chris Rouchard will all be honored at their final home meet in College Park. The Terps fell to West Virginia its last time out, but continue to fight and put up solid times considering its late season workload. Maryland continued to excel in the distance events as Rouchard came away with a pair of wins in the both the 1000 free (9:26.68) and 500 free (4:35.95). Nick Evans finished second in the 1000 free (9:35.53) and third in the 500 free (4:38.62). Brian Honore helped Maryland complete the sweep in the 500, taking second (4:37.42). Andrew Relihan also showed why he is one of the top male swimmers in the conference with a win in the 200 IM (1:52.01) and finished second in both the 200 back (2:02.94) and 200 breast (2:06.91).
Georgetown is 3-7 entering Friday's dual meet. The Hoyas topped Howard on Senior Day its last time in the water. Paul Quincy set a new school record and pool record in the 1650 free. In addition to Quincy, Chris Finnegan won the 200 free, Thomas Graham took the 200 breast, Robert Gokey won the 50 free, Brad Murray captured the 200 fly with a personal best time and Tom Crecelius won the 100 free to round out Hoya individual winners.
Following Friday's meet, Maryland will head to Chapel Hill, N.C. for the 2010 ACC Championships Feb. 24-27.
