Players to Watch (CSI): The men are coming off of a close win, 108-107, against Brooklyn College. Leo Litovsky, Michael Stora, Peter Carle and Sami Jindyeh started the men off with a win in the 200-yard Medley Relay. Carle will look for a repeat performance in which he earned a gold medal in the 200-yard Freestyle. Xavier Nicholson and Thomas Bridgeman will look to dominate the boards to keep the men on their win streak. Cecelia Mauro turned in a solid performance in the 1000-yard Freestyle against Brooklyn, beating her competition by one minute. Kimberly Hernandez has put together a quality pair of meets and will want to continue that trend in the pool today.
Players to Watch (SLC): Chaz Stafford is coming off of a 1000-yard Freestyle performance which saw him touch 22 seconds faster than the second-place finisher. Anthony Lee touched second in the 100-yard Freestyle but would like to improve upon that today. Caitie Adler earned a pair of first-place finishes in her last outing and hopes to duplicate that today against the Dolphins.
News & Notes: The Gryphons have won four-straight against the Dolphins, posting a perfect 4-0 record all-time. However, on the other side, the men of Staten Island are 5-0 all-time against the Gryphons, never allowing them to cross the 70-point threshold. Both the men and the women for Sarah Lawrence College come in off of a loss while the men and the women for Staten Island are coming in off of a CUNYAC win.
