Hawks earn 203-58 victory over Nor'easters

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Four different swimmers had a pair of individual wins to help lead the Roger Williams University Hawks to a 203-58 decision over the University of New England in a meet held Saturday afternoon (Jan. 17) at the Campus Center.

Andrea Almandoz (200 yard individual medley, 200 butterfly), Shannon Earley (200 backstroke, 1650 free), Hailey Martel (100 and 200 breaststroke), and Stephanie Niman (100 and 200 free) combined for eight of the Hawks' 10 individual event victories. Niman and Almandoz also were each involved with a pair relay triumphs -- the 200-yard medley and 400-yard freestyle.

Kayla Burgess claimed the lone win of the day for the Nor'easters, recording a time of 1:02.89 to finish first in the 100-yard butterfly. The time Burgess posted was a little more than a second off the pool record set by Kathryn Lee of Colby College in 2009.

The Hawks, who evened their record at 4-4, compete at Eastern Connecticut State University next Saturday (1 p.m.).

UNE (5-2) will compete in a tri-meet at Gordon College that same day. The event, which also includes Colby-Sawyer College, starts at 1 p.m.

1/27/15 – Bowden Named GNAC Swimmer of the Week

STANDISH, Maine – The Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) weekly awards have been released and Saint Joseph’s College senior Preston Bowden (Biddeford, Maine) has been selected as the Men’s Swimmer of the Week.

Bowden placed first in the 50-Back (28.38) and 200-Back (2:15.83) and swam legs for both SJC winning relay teams in a 151-96 victory over Husson University on Saturday.

Bowden, who was honored along with fellow seniors Adam Gaulin (Belfast, Maine) and Kelly Carter (Dedham, Mass.) with a brief Senior Day ceremony prior to the meet versus Husson, is the first Saint Joseph’s men’s swimmer to garner GNAC Swimmer of the Week accolades. He is the second to earn a weekly conference award, as sophomore Ben Johnson (Belmont, Mass.), who claimed Rookie of the Week acclaim on November 25th, 2013, was the first to collect a GNAC weekly honor.

Bowden has swum in more individual events (123) than any men’s swimmer in program history. With two regular-season meets remaining, the senior standout has 16 top finishes and 17 runner-up performances to his credit.

His name is listed in the SJC record book twice – he swam legs for the Monks’ record-setting 400-Medley (3:50.20) and 200-Free (1:33.69) relay teams at the 2013 and 2014 NEISDA Championships, respectively.

Saint Joseph’s returns to action this Saturday with a 1:00 PM home meet versus Gordon College.
