Swim team victorious over against Ohio, Marshall

The Falcons add two more wins to the season after another set of away meets.

Bowling Green swimming continued their win streak after hitting the road for two back-to-back dual meets this past weekend.

Traveling from Ohio University to Marshall, the Falcons saw a strong finish Friday and a dominating win Saturday.

“Overall I was really happy with it,” head coach Petra Martin said. “They all pulled together in one direction, were very focused and did a nice job. So I was very happy.”

Going up against a 4-2 Ohio Bobcats team, the BG win came down to the last event of the day. For the third meet in a row, Bowling Green lost 32 points to diving events, but took the lead by grabbing wins in eight of 14 swimming events.

Falcon Victoria Griffin once again took individual victories in the 100 and 200 freestyles, while Daniela Carrillo took first in 100 and 200 breaststroke.

Going into the last event, the 400 medley relay, the Falcons needed to hold off the Bobcat’s two teams from beating their own. Not relying on the victory to win, BG got it anyway as Maya Skorupski, Carrillo, Joelle Scheps and Hannah Newman swam in for first, taking the meet.

Bowling Green took the win with a final score of 155-138.

Saturday was a bit of a different story, as the Falcons cruised past Marshall with a 164-94 victory.

The team took nine of 14 swimming events with Skorupski taking two individual victories in the 100 and 200 backstroke.

Kristin Filby, Newman, Griffin, Brittany Szekely and Carmen Young all took individual wins, as well.

The two relay events were both met with top two finishes for BG, while the team also swept three individual races taking the three top finishes.

“This was a good way for us to assure that overall that our swimmers can race hard both days, you know, two days in a row,” Martin said. “Come March we’re going to have to race three days in a row.”

With the win in West Virginia, Bowling Green improves their record to 5-3 overall and remain at 2-2 in the MAC.

The Falcons take on Youngstown State next weekend here in Bowling Green. It will be Senior Day for the team as they celebrate Joëlle Scheps, Emily Waller and Szekely.

“We’re excited to recognize our seniors and spend a little bit of more quality time with them,” Martin said. “We might be looking at a little bit of different lineups, things of that nature, but again I want us to race hard and put in the same effort we have been.”

Next week’s meet is on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Cooper Pool.
