Eight Different Bison Win Events in Bucknell Women's Swimming and Diving's Victory Over Binghamton
Dec. 1, 2012
LEWISBURG, Pa. - Swimming in its first dual meet in three weeks, the Bucknell women's swimming and diving team defeated Binghamton by a 215-85 score Saturday afternoon at Kinney Natatorium. Elizabeth Porcellio posted a team-high three victories for the Bison, who had eight different people win at least one event in the meet.
Bucknell (3-3) captured first place in 15 of the 16 events contested. Porcellio won the 200-yard freestyle, the 100 fly and 200 IM. She has now won 10 races this season, including the 200 IM four times. Porcellio won the 200 free by 3.36 seconds over runner-up teammate Lyndsey Marcheskie, while she claimed the 200 IM by 2.66 seconds over teammate Ashley Henderson. The 100 fly was much closer as Porcellio edged teammate Kristen Purdy by 0.4 seconds.
Ten of the Bison's 13 individual wins came from non-seniors. Porcellio's three wins were the only first-place showings by a Bucknell senior in the meet.
The Bison swept the first three spots in an event just once (100 breast - Norton, Henderson, Morgan Oxley), but they went first and second five times.
Bucknell also had plenty of success in the relays as Levendoski, Oxley, Henderson and Perry teamed up to win the 200 medley relay, while Perry, Utkewicz, Levendoski and Porcellio captured the 400 free relay.
Saturday's meet marked the first-ever dual between Bucknell and Binghamton (0-4).
The Bison will now be idle until Jan. 5 when they travel to Columbia for a 1 p.m. dual meet.
