New Rochelle, NY |  The College of Staten Island men’s swimming team stayed perfect on the young season, but the CSI women’s unit saw their season-opening losing streak continue, as part of non-conference play at the College of New Rochelle.  The CSI men were victorious by a score of 102-59, extending to 2-0 overall, while the CSI women fell, 92-63, to fall to 0-3.

On the men’s side, a disqualification in the opening event meant the DOlphins had to mount a comeback, and they did starting with a win in the 1,000-yard Freestyle where Alex Semchenko posted a time of 11:45.33 to win the event.   Michael Stora and Leo Litovsky then took first and second in the 200-yard Freestyle.

The Dolphins got their next win in the 50-yard Freestyle with a 23.22 run by Khaled Hammam.  Ibraham Hassan followed with a win in the 200-yard Individual Medley, and four events later, he won another in the 500-yard Freestyle event to extend CSI’s slim lead.

The lead opened, however, when Stora took first and Trevin Robinson took second in the 100-yard Breaststroke, and then the Dolphins took all of the points in the final event, the 200-yard Freestyle Realy as Hassan, Semchenko, Pete Carle and Michael Blacharski put up a time of 1:41.55 while the Blue Angels DQ’d.

The CSI women did not have the same level of success, but got off to a good start, and the lead, when Cecelia Mauro took a win in the 1,000-yard Freestyle with a time of 14:29.51, winning by almost two full minutes.  From there, CNR won all of the events until the 100-yard Breaststroke, where Lisnette Solano was able to narrowly beat the field with a swim of 1:24.63.

In the final event, the CSI foursome of Danna Pineda, Thiyasha Kodituwakku, Victoria Musarella, and Kimberly Hernandez won the 200-yard Freestyle Relay with a five-second win with a time of 2:25.11.

CSI will next be in action next Friday, when they travel to Baruch College for a 6pm conference meet.
