For the men, Khaled Hammam and Alex Semchenko cruised to wins to open the night and will need a repeat performance tonight to get the Dolphins into the win column. 
Players to Watch (LC): Sarina Eshtiaghi is coming off of a meet in which she won a pair of events.  Eshtiaghi won the 200 Freestyle before picking up the gold in the 100 Backstroke. Christina Hitchman will compete for a first-place finish in the 50 Freestyle while Patricia Gonzalez will look to assist where she can throughout the meet. For the men, Anton Kyrylenko will be on display and look to help his team pick up their first CUNYAC win of the year.
