Players to Watch (CSI): Adil El Haddad recently earned CUNYAC Diver of the Week for season highs in diving this past week. El Haddad and his brother Ayman have helped the men tremendously this season picking up first-place finishes all season. In the pool, Jonathan Gorinshteyn recently picked up his first CUNYAC award of the season for helping the Dolphins go 1-1 last week. Ewa Wojciechowska and Victoria Crea have several first-place finishes this season and they will look to pace the way for the Dolphins this afternoon. Alyssa Dunn will add to the first-place finishes on the one-meter diving portion of the meet.
Players to Watch (MSU): Kevin Clauss is coming off of a pair of first-place finishes in his last meet. Clauss excels in the breaststroke and will look to keep his streak of wins alive this afternoon. Michael Traina will take on the El Haddad brothers on the boards in an attempt to steal a top finish away from them. Genna Brewer, the reigning NJAC Rookie of the Week, took two events in her last outing and will try and repeat that this afternoon.
News & Notes: This will be the second meeting between these two squads. Last season the Hawks were able to pick up the win in the first meeting on both sides. Both come into today’s meeting coming off of a loss and will look to rebound and find their way back into the win column.
