UIC Men and Women's Swimming Sweep Valparaiso
Jan. 12, 2001
Both the UIC men's and women's swimming and diving teams earned victories in their first meets back this season after a long Christmas vacation at the UIC Natatorium on Friday night. The men's team earned a 142-93 triumph over the Crusaders while the women cruised to a 145-100 win. The men improve to 3-1 overall while the women reach the .500 mark at 2-2.
Most notable for the Flames was the performance of their diving team as three individuals qualified for the Zone C Diving Championships in Bloomington, Indiana from March 9-10. Senior Charlie Rock qualified in both the 1 and 3-meter diving competitions with scores of 318.70 (3-meter) and a 290.35 (1 meter). Sophomore Michael Magee (1-meter, 301.05) and junior Andrea Bove (293.75, 3-meter). Bove also captured the 1-meter title with 241.80 points.
"It was very fun diving today," UIC diving coach Larry Barcheski said. "We had a very productive workout in Florida on our training trip and it showed today. We're back in our home pool, rested, and we're diving well."
