Read Coach Jim Dailey's Comments on the Lehigh Dual Meet

Nov. 25, 2002

Welcome to the coach's corner!

What a meet!! The men and women swam well, but Lehigh swam just that much better. Many of the races were decided by less than one second, with Lafayette taking second most of the time. Now our teams know what it feels like to get out-touched in many events and come up short in the end. The teams knew the opposite when beating Drexel by touching them out for virtually every first place. I believe this has made the team stronger and more determined to swim well second semester and more importantly at Patriot League Championships. Unfortunately, we have to wait until January 11 to swim our next dual meet.

The women swam well with top honors going to senior Brenda Thayer who had the dual meet of her career. Brenda swam season-best times in the 200 back and 200 breast and finished first in the 200 IM. Sophomores Erin Rosensteel and Jenny Moerschbacher had good performances in the 50 free and 200 free, respectively. First-year swimmer Jen Totten almost broke the school record while winning the 200 breast. Junior swimmers Kate Ehling and Liz King swam their last meet this year against Lehigh. In January, both of them will be traveling abroad and won't be competing.

The men also swam some good times. First-year swimmer Greg Van Volkenburg had a great meet swimming a season best time in the 200 free. Junior Chris Grabowski swam a season best in the 1000 free. The men's swimmer of the meet would have to go to junior Kris Klein. Kris took third in the 200 IM and second in the 200 back with season-best times. Junior captain John Veltri swam a season best in the 100 free and 50 free.

For both teams this was by far the fastest dual meet we have ever swum. The times being swum for sixth place were faster than the year before by quite a bit. For example, the top three times in the 1000 free were under ten minutes. Last year the winning time was 10:10. That's quite a difference. A lot of the credit has to go to the league in attracting student-athletes that are academically stellar and athletically talented. We will get another chance at Lehigh at Patriot League Championships and we will be ready to perform better and challenge them in all the races.
