Men’s swimming defeats Cabrini, Women fall

The Pitt-Bradford men’s swim team defeated visiting Cabrini College on Saturday afternoon 103-71 at the Paul C. Duke Aquatics Center. The women fell 99-81 despite Elizabeth Prager setting a new school record in the 1000 free.

The men claimed a total of five events including the 200 medley, 1000 freestyle, 200 IM, 100 butterfly and the 500 free.

The 200 medley first place squad included Tyler Ozehowski, Jeff Cattoni, Eric Frank and Zack France. The group finished with a time of 1:44.91

The Panthers swept the 1000 free with Matt Patterson, Alex Renwick and Andrew Koenig finishing one, two and three.

Cattoni placed first in the 200 IM with a time of 2:10.7. France and Ozehowski followed in the second and third spot with times of 2:13.22 and 2:22.55.

Frank locked up first place in the butterfly with a pace of 56.85, and Patterson secured his second, first place finish in the 500 free at 5:14.24.

For the women, Prager’s final time in the 1000 free of 11:33.71 shattered the previous school record of 11:38.54 by nearly five seconds. Prager also posted a first place finish in the 100 back.

The women took first place in six of the events that included the 200 medley, 1000 freestyle, 100 butterfly, 100 back, 100 breaststroke and the 200 freestyle relay.

The 200 medley group included Wehonna Toth, Prager, Sam Smith and Lindsay Frauen that finished at the 2:08.79 mark.

Smith claimed the 100 butterfly and Katharine O’Neil celebrated her first place finish in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:35.36.

Not locking up enough second and third place finishes proved to be the difference for the Panthers as the Cavaliers were able to tally enough points to steal the win.

The Panthers return to the pool on Saturday, Nov. 2, when they host Penn State Altoona at 1 p.m.
