Falcons’ Harris wins one event, places in two others


BUFFALO, New York – The Bowling Green State University swimming and diving team took on the University at Buffalo Saturday for their last dual meet of the season. The Falcons fell 220-77.

“Today was another tough meet. Buffalo is a very good team,” BGSU coach Rickey Perkins said. “Over the last three weeks we have competed against the top two teams in the MAC and the best team in the Horizon League.

“It has been a tough stretch in our schedule, but we are in high spirits and looking forward to MAC Championships.”

The Falcons were led by senior Taylor Harris. Harris was the lone Falcon to reach the top spot in an event. Harris won the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:22.22. Harris also finished second in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:06.21.

Then in the last individual event of the day Harris again scored points in the 200 intermediate medley with a time of 2:11.98.

Falcons Emily McNicol and Lily Kaiser both added second place finishes to the effort. McNicol finished second in the 100 backstroke with a time of 57.59. Meanwhile, Kaiser placed second in the 200 Backstroke with a time of 2:09.11.

The divers were led again by Rayah Blood and Elise Snyder. Blood and Snyder finished back-to-back in both dives and were the top finishers for the Falcons.

In the three-meter dive Blood was the highest finisher placing third with a score of 289.5 and was closely followed by Snyder with a score of 246.75. Snyder was then the top Falcon in the one-meter dive with a score of 239.85.

The Falcons return to the pool in two weeks in the Miami Last Chance Meet taking place from February 10-11. This will be the Falcons last competition before the Mid-American Conference championships.
