Easton, PA -
Lafayette men's and women's swimming added some confidence as they dominated visiting Holy Cross today. Both squads came away with wins, the men by 36 points, and the women by 42.
The men also took top honors in nine of 13 events, and may have had more, but only swam exhibition in the 400 free relay. The meets' top performance belonged to Jason Thayer, who won both the 200 individual medley and the 100 free in an impressive time of 49.10, beating his closest competitor by over a second. Other winners for the men were Matt Haggerty in the 1000 free, Lucas Kimmel in the 50 free and 200 back, Mike Sanda in the one- and three-meter dives, and Sean Hansen in the 200 breastroke.
The men's and women's swimming and diving teams return to action in the Patriot League Championships, two weeks from now. They will attempt to qualify more swimmers for the ECAC meet held the following weekend.
