NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame men’s swimming and diving team moved its dual meet record to 11-3 heading into the BIG EAST championships by defeating Atlantic 10 rival St. Bonaventure.
Once again it was a team effort for the Irish swimmers with seven different swimmers winning races. The Irish claimed nine individual wins, including two by diver Andy Maggio (Cincinnati, Ohio) who posted the top score in both the one- and three-meter diving. Both scores (311.9 and 383.85 respectively) were season-bests for Maggio. The 383.5 points he posted in the three-meter event also sets a pool and university record. David Horak swam a season-best time of 1:51.81 in his 200 backstroke victory. Other event winners for the Irish included Matt Bertke in the 1000 freestyle (9:43.39), Matt Obringer in the 200 freestyle (1:42.33), David Moisan (Fisherville, Ken.) in the 200 individual medley (1:55.76), J.R. Teddy in the 200 butterfly (1:53.71), Michael Flanagan in the 500 freestyle (4:49.62), and Matt Englehardt in the 200 breaststroke (2:13.44). Adam Cahill (Richmond, Ky.) also qualified for the BIG EAST Championships with a time of 21.42 in the 50 freestyle.
Ernest Teo contributed two first place finishes in the 50 and 100 freestyle in a losing effort for the Bonnies.
Notre Dame will face Cleveland St. at home in the Rolfs Aquatic Center on February 9, 2002.
