200 Free Relay Titles Highlight First Day For Swimming & Diving At Horizon League Championships
Feb. 21, 2007
Chicago, Ill.- The first day of the 2007 Horizon League Championships at the UIC Natatorium got off to a fast start for the Flames' swimming and diving teams, as both the men's and women's squads captured 200-yard freestyle relay victories to open Wednesday night's finals session.
UIC's foursome of Cameron Seebeck, Brenden Dougherty, Dan Hare and Blake Booher then followed with a winning time of 1:21.05 in the men's title, thanks largely to Booher's :19.37 split that overcame an early Wright State lead in the race, to give the Flames a sweep of the 200 free relay championships.
Through Wednesday's events the Flames sit in third place on the men's side of team rankings, while the UIC ladies are in fourth.
Wright State currently leads on both sides.
The 2007 Horizon League Swimming & Diving Championships resume at the UIC Natatorium on Thursday morning with swimming preliminaries beginning at 10:30 a.m.
