Despite several record breaking performances on the men’s side, both Greensboro’s men and women’s swim teams fell to Randolph-Macon at Reynold’s Pool.
Emma Phillips was a double-winner on the women’s side, taking first in the 400 IM with a time of 4:53.77 and the 200 Breast with a time of 2:30.84. Dani Horne also won an event, taking the 50 Freestyle in 26.09. Horne finished third in the 200 Backstroke with a time of 2:27.41
Ben Nihart was the highest-placing male swimmer with a team record 2:45.61 in the 200 Breast which placed second along with Jonathan Deming’s second place finish in the 1000 Freestyle. Eddie Kirby established a team record in the 200 Fly and broke the 100 Butterfly record in the process (1:08.17).
“The team gained a lot of experience today,” said head coach Scot Budde. “Randolph-Macon College is perennially one of the best teams in the ODAC, so our team knows what is necessary to be able to compete at that level. We had numerous career best times, but the end result has motivated our swimmers to train hard during the final stretch of the season.”
The women’s team will return to action on January 22nd as Emory & Henry and Guilford visit Reynolds Pool, while the men will be inactive until January 27th when Hampden Sydney visits for Pride Packs the Place.
