Both the men’s and women’s swim team fell short to the Widener University Pride on Saturday, Jan. 28. The final score for the men’s meet was 86-66 and the women’s final score was 112-93. The men’s team was led by sophomores Tim McCann and Brandon Mazepa along with freshman Evan Strickland. McCann looks forward to the rest of the season and has extreme faith in his fellow teammates.

“We had lots of time improvements, almost everyone put up faster times,” McCann said. “As far as doing better goes, at this point we’re all training hard and have been all season and it’s showing so as long as we keep up the hard work we should keep getting better.”

“Swimming against bigger schools such as Widener is difficult when they have practically triple amount of kids,” Mazepa said. “Going into a meet knowing you’re swimming against a horse of a different breed is kind of difficult but only pushes us more.”

Mazepa displayed an amazing season coming in third in the 100-yard backstroke and took home a couple victories in the 200-yard back stroke and the 200-yard individual medley.

“I feel we did really well, everyone on the team is talented and they do an amazing job every meet. Unfortunately, we crumbled to Widener,” Mazepa said. “But that won’t stop us going strong and getting ready for Ocean County College on Saturday where I feel we can sweep if we are ready for it.”

The men’s and women’s teams have had remarkable scores throughout the season. Strickland has added a couple wins to his resume such as the 100-yard butterfly, 100-yard breaststroke and the 200-yard breaststroke. His scores in the breaststroke were the greatest in the season.

The Lady Cavs were led by senior Lauren Sliva and freshman Melanie Felkner. Sliva had her season’s unsurpassed time in the 100-yard breaststroke. She also had extraordinary times in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle.
