WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's and women's swimming and diving team will celebrate homecoming by hosting Towson University at McCarthy Pool on Saturday, October 22 at 1 p.m. It will be the first home meet for the Hoyas during the 2011-12 season and the second time they have competed with Towson, after seeing the Tigers at the Tigers at the Potomac Relays.
"We are excited for the opportunity to get up and race for what should be a great crowd for Homecoming weekend," Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving Head Coach James Holder said. "We are hoping for a good meet against a good opponent."
In its first dual meet of the season, the Hoyas had several individual performers post winning results. Junior Paul Quincy (San Ramon, Calif./California) earned two first place finishes in the 1000 yard freestyle and 500 yard freestyle. Freshman Michael Ng (Nashville, Tenn./University School) had a strong first meet, earning victory in the 100 yard backstroke for the men.
On the women's side, the Hoyas top three relay teams took the top three places in the Georgetown 400 yard freestyle relay, with the team of Lauren Opatrny, Laura Tramer, Amy Ballanfant and Alexandra Van Nispen finishing first.
The Towson men's and women's swimming and diving team won The Potomac Relays, in a meet that featured the Hoyas, George Washington, Howard, Mary Washington and American. Towson has had one dual meet this season, defeating William & Mary on October 8.
