WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia, October 8. THE Tigers (1-0, 1-0 in CAA) opened up the team's conference season Saturday with a 142-120 victory over the William & Mary Tribe (0-1, 0-1 CAA).
"I'm glad that we won, but we still have much to improve on," Towson Coach Pat Mead said. "We need to have more people contributing."
Towson recorded strong times in numerous events en-route to the team's first victory of the season. Freshman Victoria Oslund competed in four events, winning both the 100-yard butterfly and 200-yard butterfly individual events. Oslund followed up her time of 57.30 in the 100-yard event with a 2:05.45 time in the 200-yard butterfly. The team took the top three times in the 200-yard butterfly, with Kendall Towe and Marianna Kogut finishing in second and third place, respectively.
"Victoria had an unbelievable meet," Mead said. "Those were great swims for her."
Cari Czarnecki and Kaitlin Burke both also won multiple events for the Tigers. Czarnecki's time of 1:05.87 in the 100-yard breaststroke was almost two seconds better than fellow Tiger Maggie Macedonia. Towson had the top four finishers in the 100-yard breaststroke.
Burke recorded three individual victories in the 100, 500 and 1000-yard freestyle events. Her time of 4:59.84 in the 500-yard freestyle was over seven seconds faster than the second place finisher in the event.
Towson will have a two week layoff before returning to the pool Oct. 22 when they will travel to Georgetown University. The meet will begin at 1:00 p.m.
