Swimming team to compete at ECAC Winter Championships, Nov. 30 – Dec. 2


The swimming team is headed to New York to compete at the ECAC Winter Championships at the Nassau County Aquatics Center from Nov. 30 – Dec. 2. This is the second time SFU will participate in the winter version of the ECAC Championship meet.

SFU placed 10th out of 17 teams last year at the event. Northeast Conference members Wagner and St. Francis College (New York) will also be competing at the meet.

The Red Flash have multiple swimmers who hold top 10 times in the NEC this season. Junior Sabrina Bowman leads all SFU swimmers with six top 10 times in the league.

Bowman currently ranks first in 100-fly and 200-individual medley, second in the 100-breaststroke and 100-free, third in 50-free, and eighth in 100-backstroke.

‘’Our team is excited to go to the ECAC Championship,” said Bowman. “It’s always fun to be able to race against fast teams and compete with them.’’

Junior Karilyn Quon currently holds five top 10 times in the conference. Quon is first in the 400-individual medley, second in 200-IM, third in the 200-freestyle, sixth in 200-backstroke, and seventh in the 100-backstroke.

‘’Going into ECACs, my mindset is more focused on just racing and having fun,” said Quon.

The Red Flash are currently 7-3 on the season.

“Our team, overall, is very strong,” said first-year head coach Kyle Almoney. “There are some technical things we can improve upon, and our focus should be making sure we are ready for NECs.”

“But all things considered, I think our season is going great so far.”
