    CHICAGO – The UIC men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams head into the weekend with back-to-back meets.  On Friday, the Flames take on Wyoming at the Flames Natatorium at 5 p.m. (CT), then turn around to host the Cowboys again with Northwestern joining on Saturday at 1 p.m.

    "In the coming meets, this weekend and the TYR Invite, we are preparing the team to race effectively in a multiday format, similar to the Horizon League Championships,” stated head coach Paul Moniak. “Wyoming and Northwestern will offer fantastic competition to that end."

    The men’s squad (2-3, 1-2 HL) took first in nine out of 16 events against Milwaukee last Saturday, coming out on top with a final of 157-141. Kei Ishimaru was best individually, as well as in his relay. Ishimaru recorded times of 1:52.31 in the 200 butterfly, 50.58 in the 100 fly, and 1:54.24 in the 200 IM. Ishimaru teamed up with Peter Errichiello, Conor Ozog, and Mike Reed for the 200 medley relay and proved to be best with a time of 1:34.70.

    Sebastian Ostrowski (51.56) touched first in the 100 backstroke, while Christian Grobe was unstoppable in the 100 breaststroke with a final time of 58.30, as well as in the 200 breast with a time of 2:04.99. Reed sped through the 50 freestyle (20.99) as he came out victorious.

    In the final race of the day, the Flames quartet of Vincent Errichiello, Nick Kowaleski, Ostrowski, and P. Errichiello proved to be best with a first-place time of 1:25.02, beating Milwaukee by .11 seconds.  The win ensured the Flames a first place finish in the meet.

    On the women’s side (2-3, 1-2 HL), Whitney Johnson secured first on the one-meter board with a final score of 307.50, breaking her own pool record. She also made NCAA qualifying scores on both the 1-and 3-meter heights at the meet. Danel Voorhees touched first in the 100 fly with a time of 57.38.

    UIC took second in eight events, beginning with the 200 medley relay team consisting of Anne Jacobsen, Voorhees, Monica Pinkus, and Katherine Hare with a time of 1:48.71.

    Pinkus also took second in the 100 breast (1:04.57) and 200 breast (2:24.92). Jacobsen just missed in the 100 back, registering a time of 1:00.01. Veronica Gibson came up short in the 1650 free with a time of 17:44.96, as well as the 200 IM with a time of 2:12.70.

    The quartet of Pinkus, Hare, Melanie Waszak, and Kelsey Millin swam the 200 free relay, but ultimately came in second with a time of 1:37.48. Waszak also placed second in the 200 fly with a final time of 2:08.69.
