Centre splits Senior Day swim meet against Wittenberg
The Centre swimming and diving teams competed in their final meet of the season at Boles Natatorium as they took on Wittenberg and honored their 2015 seniors and their families. The Colonels came away with a split as the men's team won 139-85, while the women's team lost 127.5-95.5.
On the men's side, the Colonels won both of the relay competitions in today's meet. The team of senior Spencer Vetter (Lexington, S.C.), sophomore Patrick Wells (Louisville, Ky.) and freshmen Logan Oatman (Paducah, Ky.) and Noah Martin (Spartanburg, S.C.) took first place in the 200 medley relay. The all-senior squad of Wes McCrary (Winchester, Ky.), Jess Pritchett (Louisville, Ky.), Nick Rauh (Bowling Green, Ky.) and John Kelley (Cincinnati, Ohio) picked up a win in the 200 freestyle relay.
In individual events, the Colonels had a pair of multiple event winners on the men's side. Logan Oatman won a pair of freestyle races at 500 and 1,000 yards, while Patrick Wells won a couple of sprints, taking first in the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle. Noah Martin finished first in the 100-yard butterfly, while reigning SAA Men's Swimmer of the Week John Kelley took first place in the 100-yard backstroke. Freshman diver Jack Miller (Richmond, Ky.) won the meet's lone diving event, taking first place on the 1m board to round out the event wins for the Centre men.
The Centre women picked up one victory in relay competition, as the team of senior Hadley Judson (Atlanta, Ga.), juniors Kirsten Larson (Taylor Mill, Ky.) and Kristen Holliday (Newark, Del.) and freshman Cameron Beach (Greenville, S.C.) finished first in the 200-yard freestyle relay.
In individual events, two Centre women's swimmers won multiple events. Last week's SAA Women's Swimmer of the Week Hadley Judson took first place in the 200-yard and 500-yard freestyles, while Kristen Holliday won both the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard butterfly. Freshman diver Sarah Hayhurst (Newburgh, Ind.) won the 1m board to round out all of the women's individual wins for the Colonels.
The Colonels will be back in the pool on Jan. 24th as they travel to Louisville, Ky. to take on host school Bellarmine as well as Missouri-St. Louis.
