    CHICAGO – The UIC men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams welcome Milwaukee in their second home meet of the season on Saturday.  Competition is set to get underway at 1 p.m. (CT) at the Flames Natatorium.

    The Flames return to the pool after competing in a dual meet with EIU and IUPUI last weekend. Both squads defeated EIU with a men’s score of 138-65 and a women’s score of 139-65. The teams were unable to come away with a win against IUPUI and the men were defeated 121-83, while the women fell short 105-99.

    The men’s squad (1-3, 0-2 HL) had four swimmers set Ray Padovan Pool records last Saturday. Ryota Kuwahara in the 1000 freestyle with a time of 9:49.52, Mike Reed in the 50 free with a time of 20.97, Ramiro Almaraz in the 400 IM with a time of 4:11.34, and Kei Ishimaru in the 100 butterfly with a time of 50.77.

    Five first-place finishes were recorded for the women’s squad (2-2, 1-1 HL), with three being Ray Padovan Pool records.  Monica Pinkus set a record with a time of 1:04.46 in the 100 breaststroke, and also took first in the 50 free with a time of 24.33. Danel Voorhees put up a top time as well with a record-setting 100 fly (58.18). Veronica Gibson was the last Flame to set a record with her time of 4:36.48 in the 400 IM. Melanie Waszak’s time of 1:56.80 in the 200 free notched her first-place honors in the event.

    The men’s squad enters the meet hungry to pick up their first conference victory of the season, while the women are looking to improve their Horizon League record to 2-1.
