WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University swimming & diving teams each placed second at the 2017 BIG EAST Swimming & Diving Championships, presented by Jeep at the Nassau Aquatics Center on Long Island, N.Y. Molly Fitzpatrick (Manchester, N.H./The Derryfield School) and Margaret Barnhorst (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Ponte Vedra) highlighted the fourth and final day for the Hoyas, winning gold in the 200-yard breaststroke and women's 3-meter diving, respectively.

The Hoya men earned 677.50 points over the four-day championship meet to finish behind Seton hall (872.50). Georgetown's women's squad scored 685 total points, behind only Villanova (1,017).

"It was a great weekend overall with lots of really good swims," Georgetown Head Coach Jack Leavitt said. "I really loved our attitude and our effort from start to finish. We're really going to miss the leadership from our senior class, but we have a great foundation moving forward and I can't wait to get back to work."

One night after winning the 100-yard breaststroke, Fitzpatrick successfully defended her title in the 200-yard breaststroke. She cruised to a three-second victory, touching the wall in 2:11.16 for her second gold of the championships. Barnhorst, who finished second in the women's 1-meter dive on Thursday, won the 3-meter event with a score of 527.75. Elizabeth Miller (Wayland, Mass./Wayland) placed second with 511.35 points as the Hoyas took the top two spots.

Katie Duncalf (Chappaqua, N.Y./Horace Greeley) placed second in the 200-yard backstroke with a time of 1:57.85. Kelleigh Haley (Silver Spring, Md./Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart) was Georgetown's third medalist on Saturday, taking third in the 200-yard butterfly, finishing in a time of 2:04.56.



On the men's side, Terry Johnson (Carmichael, Calif./Jesuit) placed second in the 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1:49.74, outstretching his opponent from Villanova by just .05 seconds. Henry Hollinshead (Raleigh, N.C./Green Hope) also reached the medal stand in the 200-yard backstroke, touching the wall third in 1:48.12.

Barnhorst was named the championship's Most Outstanding Women's Diver after her two top finishes. Jared Cooper Vespa (Orange, Conn./The Hopkins School), who won gold in the men's 3-meter dive and silver in the 1-meter dive, was named the Most Outstanding Men's Diver. Georgetown Diving Coach Michael Tober was named the Men's Diving Coach of the Year and the Women's Diving Co-Coach of the Year.
