The Cabrini men’s swimming team is 2-1, while the women are 4-2 so far in the 2009-10 season.

In the most recent meet at King’s College, junior Josh Pace was a three-time winner.

Also leading the men’s efforts was junior Kyle Teliszewski with first place finishes in the 100 yd. freestyle and 200 yd. freestyle.

“Juniors Bill Boylan and Kyle Teliszewski are incredible athletes, winning most of the races they swim,” Michael Kernicky, head coach, said.

This is the first year that the men have had a record over .500 at this time in a season.

According to senior captain Anne Konicki, many swimmers had great swims at King’s College and some swam new events for the first time.

“The swimmers are coming together as a team and that goes a long way,” Konicki, senior exercise science and health promotion major, said.

The men and women had five first-place finishes at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

With a time of 26.67 seconds, senior Andrea Carabello gained her second first-place finish in the 50 yd. freestyle.

She later won her third 50 yd. freestyle at Juniata College with a time of 27.06 seconds. Carabello has finished in first and second place across the board for the women’s team this season.

As a captain, Konicki believes that the freshmen are making great improvements so far in the season.

“We have more depth than we did last year and hopefully with hard work at practices we’ll see huge improvements compared to last year,” Konicki said.

With a first place finish at King’s College for the 50 yd. freestyle, freshman Rich Dalatri recorded a time of 23.71 seconds and placed third against Scranton University with a time of 23.88.

Kernicky says that Dalatri has fit in well with the team.

Junior Emily Yurick finished first at King’s College in the 200 yd. individual medley with a time of 2:30.11. Teammate Konciki had a time of 6:12:92 in the 500 yd. freestyle at Fairleigh Dickinson, allowing her a second place finish.

Contributing much to the women’s team is sophomore MacKenzie Stewart with three first place finishes in the 100 yd. breaststroke.

“Yurick and Konicki swim with incredible heart and drive for the team,” Kernicky said.

“This will be our best year yet and we are already swimming really fast. I am excited for the rest of the season,” Teliszewski said.
