Notre Dame Men's Swimming Defeats Buffalo
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Notre Dame's men's and women's swimming
and diving teams both won dual meets Friday but in vastly different styles. The
women's team routed Southern Illinois 161-132 while the men's edged host Buffalo
126-115 in a meet that went down to the last relay. With the wins, both teams
improve to 6-3 on the season. The women will travel to Ann Arbor, Mich. on
Saturday to face Eastern Michigan and host Michigan. The men swim at St.
Bonventure on Saturday.
The men were lead by senior captain Matt Rose who won both the 200 breaststroke
and the 200 individual medley and freshman diver Herb Huesman won both the one
and three-meter diving events. The meet was a back-and-forth affair with the
Irish winning the final relay to pull out the win, their fourth-straight win.
