Wesleyan swimmers down D&E Senators

BUCKHANNON – The West Virginia Wesleyan swim teams returned to the pool after an eight-week hiatus for finals and the holiday break competing against Davis & Elkins College in the annual “Battle of the Hills.”

Both teams looked sharp as the women defeated Davis & Elkins by a 166-96 score and the men beat the Senators by a 150-112 score.

“It was incredible to see the team racing and competing again,” remarked Wesleyan head coach April Gitzen. “ After two weeks of intense training leading up to this meet, I am pleased with the results. Our ultimate goal being the conference championship meet in under five weeks. Overall I am pleased with the results today but we remain focused on the MEC championship meet.”

On the women’s side, they won eight individual events and both relay events.

On the men’s side, the ‘Cats claimed six events and both relay events.

The two teams will be back in action Saturday as they visit Fairmont State for a 1 p.m. meet.
