Meliora Weekend proved to be a great weekend for a swim meet. Both UR’s men’s and women’s swim teams traveled to Hartwick College for the Hartwick Relays on Saturday. This meet was a little unusual, because it consisted of only relay events. Both teams placed second and logged a number of impressive performances.

The men’s team showed up with the intensity and the teamwork needed to shine at the meet. The 300 breaststroke relay of sophomore Bobby McCue, junior Chris Jensen and freshman Andy Hagar won in a time of 3:11.63. The ‘Jackets also competed hard to clench the first place spot in the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:43.73. The team included freshmen Dmitry Petropavlovskiy, Jenson, freshman Colin Funai and freshman Wesley Hood.

Overall, the men’s team worked hard, scoring a total of 98 points to Hartwick’s 160. The College of St. Rose had 90 points and was followed by Wells College and Cazenovia College.

The women’s team also finished strong, with victories in four events. UR scored a total of 108 points, second only to Hartwick’s 134. They were followed by The College of St. Rose, Cazenovia College and Wells College. UR finished in a time of 9:05.84 to win the 850 freestyle relay. The team included freshman Olivia Ehmann, freshman Emily Scott, sophomore Cailee Caldwell and sophomore Kathryn Lukens.

Scott and Ehmann came right back to win the 200 free relay with sophomores Dayna Jacob and Rachel Boldt in a time of 1:43.65. The women’s third relay title was clenched in the 200 medley. The team of sophomore Val Atwood, freshman Bridgett Festa, Scott and Jacob touched with a time of 1:57.93. The women also had a win in the 400 free relay Jacob, Ehmann, sophomore Liz Subjec and Caldwell came in at 3:49.35 to clench first place.

On Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, the men and women will host New York University and Case Western Reserve University at home at 6 p.m.

Rogers is a member of the class of 2012.
