Swimmers to Watch (CSI): Tim Sweeney has been named CUNYAC Swimmer of the Week six times this season and for the last three weeks so undoubtedly he will be one to look for among the standouts tonight. The same holds true for senior Derek Villa and standouts Jonathan Gorinshteyn and Nicholas Defonte. Ayman and Adil El Haddad have also been standouts all season on the diving planks. Ewa Wojciechowska is the leading point-getter on the women’s side and loom for her to lead the way in freestyle sprint competition while Naomi Gaggi has been dominating distance events. Samantha Escobedo and Victoria Crea are also have great seasons and will look to continue the roll tonight.
Swimmers to Watch (YC): Javier Velazquez and Nicholas Bailey are looking to continue their progressions this season for the Cardinals men, while over on the women’s side Kerry-Ann Bailey and Shantusha Kanhai will look to score some upsets in races and keep pace with the Dolphins.
News and Notes: The Dolphins have never dropped a meet to York, and last year the CSI men prevailed 178-27 while the women also scored a lop-sided win, 114-60. After this the Dolphins will be idle for a full week as they prepare for the CUNYAC Championships next weekend at Lehman College. The championship spans three days of action. The men are looking for a championship four-peat, while the women will look to improve on their third-place standing from a year ago.
