ECU swimmers, divers take dual meet with ODU

NORFOLK, Va. — Seniors Vendela Norrman and Alicia Roueche established pool records in their respective events to lead the ECU men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams to a dual meet win over Old Dominion on Saturday at the JC Scrap Chandler Pool.

The ECU men posted a 163.5-136.5 victory to improve to 3-1 overall. The women, who took first place in 14 of 26 events boosted their record to 4-1 with  a 179-116 victory.

“It was a great effort from our team today in all three phases: racing, results and energy,” ECU head coach Matthew Jabs said. “We had a handful of multi-event winners and two NCAA qualifying performances, so overall it was a very good day.”

Norrman set the pool record in the 200 breaststroke with an NCAA B qualifying time of 2:15.85.

Roueche posted an NCAA Zone qualifying score of 348.70 on the 3-meter springboard, setting a pool record. She also captured first place on the 1-meter springboard.

Sophomore Magnus Andersen recorded three first-place finishes, winning the 200 freestyle (1:43.12), 200 backstroke (1:51.85) and 200 individual medley (1:53.85).

Three ECU swimmers won two events each — sophomore Kaitlyn Hauser (500 freestyle, 1000 freestyle), senior Julie Lajoie (100 butterfly, 200 butterfly) and senior Tori Angermeier (100 freestyle, 200 IM) each posted multi-event wins.

Also posting wins for the Pirates were Stefanie Scherwitzel (women’s 200 freestyle), Logan Graumann (women’s 100 backstroke), Catherine Johnson (women’s 50 freestyle), Boleck De Pawlikowski (men’s 100 backstroke), Victor Santos (men’s 50 freestyle) and Matt Mullen (men’s 1-meter diving).

The Pirates captured first place in all four relays events.

ECU continues its dual meet season Saturday at 1 p.m. against UNC Wilmington at Minges Natatorium.
