Oct. 31, 2004
Dayton, Ohio- Facing the defending Horizon League champions on both sides, the University of Illinois at Chicago swimming and diving teams faced a tough road task against perennial power Wright State, but the Flames put up a nice fight in defeat on Saturday at the WSU Natatorium.
In a quick meet that was closer than the final tallies indicated, the UIC men (1-1, 0-1 Horizon League) dropped a 135-102 decision to the Raiders, while the UIC women's team (1-1, 0-1 Horizon League) were downed 145.5-94.5.
Booher won the men's race in 21.34, defeating defending league 50 free champion Elvis Cirikovic. Dougherty continued her blazing start, winning the 50 free for the second dual meet in a row with a 25.36, edging out teammate Jenny Gessford, who swam a 25.89.
UIC also swept the 400-yard freestyle relays.
The Flames return to the UIC Natatorium for action next week against league rival UW-Milwaukee on Saturday, Nov. 6th beginning at 2 p.m.
