    Evanston, Ill.- The climb to the top of the Horizon League continued on Sunday for the University of Illinois at Chicago swimming and diving team, as the Flames took on some of the toughest relay squads in the Midwest at the Northwestern Relays in Evanston.

    UIC's men's relay teams received six second-place finishes, beating Horizon League rivals UW-Milwaukee and UW-Green Bay each time, to finish only behind the host Wildcats.

    The Flames women's relays turned in six third-place finishes.

    In team scoring, the men took second with 179 points, while the women took fourth with 171.

    For the men, it was a balanced attack for the UIC "A" relay teams en route to second-place rankings in the 300 backstroke, 800 freestyle, 400 medley, 200 freestyle, 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays.

    It was a big change from last season, where the men's relays finished no higher than third.

    The women also showed some nice improvement from last year's NU Relay performance, cutting seven seconds off their 300 breaststroke relay time, five seconds off their 800 free relay mark, and five ticks off their 400 free relay showing at last year's Northwestern Relays.

    UIC gets back to dual meet action with a road trip to Dayton, Ohio, to take on defending league champions Wright State next Saturday.
