WVWC swim teams drop home outing to Salem

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Wesleyan swim program returned to the Natatorium on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College on Friday (Oct. 28) evening and welcomed Salem to the pool.

On the women’s side, Jennifer Williams placed first in the 100 yard breaststroke, touching the wall with a time of 1:18.05. In her first home meet as a Bobcat, freshman Annalise Gentilozzi won the 200 yard breaststroke at a clip of 2:51.43. Williams finished right behind her at a pace of 2:52.58.

One of the most electrifying moments of the evening was when the Bobcats’ 200 yard free relay team of Morgan Bennet, Gentilozzi, Alienor Dalle and Alayna Crayne came back to defeat Salem’s relay team for a Bobcat relay victory. The WVWC relay team completed the race in 1:48.11, winning the relay by less than one second.

For the men, Jack Gutekunst placed second in the 200 yard free at 1:57.63. The freshman from Derlan, N.J. completed the 100 yard free at a time of 51.02 in his first race in Buckhannon.

The women’s team was defeated by a score of 141-116, while the men were edged 180-42.

The WVWC swimming team will return to the pool on Saturday (Oct. 29) at 1 p.m. for a meet versus Bethany in Buckhannon.
