Notre Dame Men's Swimming and Diving Wins Notre Dame Invitational; Women Finish Second

Notre Dame, Ind.: The Notre Dame men's swimming and diving team captured first place at the Notre Dame Invitational as they finished with 889 points, outdistancing second place Syracuse, which finished with 779 points. The Notre Dame women placed second with 753 points to a strong Michigan squad, which took first place with 1,035 points.

On the men's side, Notre Dame junior Scott Zumbach won a closely contested 200 yards butterfly as he swam to a time of 1:51.69, which was only .16 seconds ahead of the second place finisher. Freshman Dan Szilier continued to swim well as he won the 200 yards breaststroke with a time of 2:05.07. The Irish also won the 400 yard freestyle relay on their way to a first place finish.

Notre Dame senior Linda Gallo continued to shine for the Irish as she set pool and meet records with her time of 16:44.91 in the 1650 yards freestyle. Gallo's time also bested the NCAA B Qualifying mark in the event. Sophomore Gina Ketelhohn was the only other winner for the Irish as she won the one-meter diving competition with 372.70 points. Notre Dame sophomore Shannon Suddarth again swam well as she finished second in the 200 yards breaststroke with a time of 2:19.75.

Records fell once again on the third day of the Notre Dame Invitational. Besides Gallo's record, five other pool and meet records were set, all by the Michigan women. Michigan swimmers set records in the 200-yard backstroke, 100-yard freestyle, 200-yard breaststroke, 200-yard butterfly, and the 400-yard freestyle relay.
