Winter sports update: Swimming and diving

The regular season for the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams is coming to a close. The teams’ successes have led them to the Upper New York State Collegiate Swimming Association/Empire 8 Championships this weekend. This season, the men were 15–1 in dual meet competition, with their only loss coming against Hartwick College. The women’s team finished the season undefeated at 12–0. Sophomore Matt Morrison and junior Korie Fackler both set school records in diving during regular season competition. On Feb. 15, during the Bomber Invitational, junior Zack Kundel set the most recent record in the 50-meter freestyle. So far this season, three Bombers on the men’s side have been named Empire 8 Swimming and Diving Athletes of the week: senior Jake Lichter, junior Taylor Van Cott and Morrison was named twice.  For the women, Fackler and senior Carly Jones earned the title as well.
