The Salisbury University men's and women's swim teams couldn't have performed much better in their second and final home meet of the season on Saturday afternoon, as the Sea Gulls captured first place in nearly every event to defeat Capital Athletic Conference foe Hood College.
The women, who defeated Hood 110-41, rallied together in a true team effort to win all but two events. The men's team won all but three events, sealing a 110-52 victory. The maroon and gold's first home meet, back on Oct. 24 against CAC rival Marymount (Va.) University, had a similar outcome as both the men and women came away with solid victories against the Saints.
Three members of the men's team swam their last events at home in maroon and gold: Sean Snee (Monkton, Md.), Mike Ferrari (Columbia, Md.) and Kevin Lonergan (Milford, Del.). The women's side will see five Sea Gulls leave the flock at the conclusion of this season: Laura Dignan (Middletown, Del.), Maureen Gillespie (New Market, Md.), Angie Hammond (York, Pa.), Jessica Krauss (Clarksville, Md.) and Lindsay Southworth (Westminster, Md.).
The Sea Gulls will have two weeks to rest and regroup before their next meet on Jan. 23 against CAC opponent St. Mary's (Md.) College. The meet is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.
