SEWELL, N.J. - The Georgetown University men's 200-yard medley relay squad of Michael Young, Christian Kilgore, Martin Vanin and Matthew Mandel earned gold on the first night of the BIG EAST Championships. Overall the Hoyas broke three program records and earned three medals at the Gloucester County Institute of Technology in Sewell, N.J.
Young gave the Hoyas an early lead, Kilgore and Vanin widened the margin and Mandel held on with a strong finish to help the Hoyas edge Xavier by one-hundredth of a second, in 1:31.36, a new program record and the Hoyas first gold medal of the BIG EAST Championships in the final event of the evening.
The Hoyas broke three program records in four relay events on Wednesday evening, as the women currently sit at the top of a six team field with 163 points. On the men's side Georgetown is currently second of five squads, behind just Seton Hall, with 105 points.
"It was a really quality start, but we have a long way to go," Head Coach Jamie Holder said on Wednesday night. "We're going to take one event at a time. Villanova and Seton Hall have really great programs and everyone has fast kids, so we don't want to get ahead of ourselves and just focus on each event."
The Hoyas' women's 800-yard freestyle relay team of Erica Fabbri, Casey Bandman, Erin Timochenko and Nicole Tronolone set a new Georgetown program record and earned silver, finishing behind Villanova in 7:32.44. Fabbri also broke a program record in the 200-yard freestyle with her opening leg of the relay, as she finished in 1:51.12.
Georgetown's men's 800-yard freestyle relay quartet of David Chung, William Lawler, William Leach and Cal Rohde earned bronze, behind Xavier and Villanova in 6:47.32.
