Gabi Albiero, Denis Petrashov Set Pool Records as Louisville Sweeps Cincinnati

Gabi Albiero and Denis Petrashov set pool records on Saturday as Louisville bounced back from losses Friday to sweep Cincinnati.

The men’s team scored a 203-94 victory. The Cardinals’ women prevailed by a 198-92 margin.

Albiero won the 100 butterfly in 51.40 seconds. It lowered her Ralph Wright Natatorium record from last week, when she went 51.71.

Petrashov, Luke Shourds and third-place Aidan Kreiley were all under the pool record of 54.63 in the 100 breaststroke, set in 2020 by Evengii Somov. Petrashov gets the honor, his time of 53.87 just .09 up on Shourds.

The Cardinals won 10 races in each meet. The women’s team led with its sprint prowess, Julia Dennis leading three Cardinals in the 48s. Christiana Regenauer was second with Tristen Ulett third. Louisville went 1-2 in the 50 free as well, Ella Welch’s 22.32 leading Karoline Barrett to the wall.

Barrett swam on Louisville’s fastest 200 medley and 200 free relays. Welch was third in the 200 free behind Regenaue. Welch was second and Barrett third to Albiero in the 100 fly.

Paige Kuwata (1,650 free), Paige Hetrick (100 back), Madie Hall (200 fly) and Abby Hay (400 individual medley) and Fernanda Gomes Celidonio (200 breast) added wins for Louisville. Ulett was also second in the 100 back. Rye Ulett finished second in the 500 free and 400 IM.

Lily Jones won the 200 backstroke and finished third in the 100 back for the Beracats. Joleigh Crye captured the 100 breast, the freshman’s time of 59.57 seconds setting a school record. It also gives her an NCAA B cut.

Petrashov also won the 200 breast, in 1:57.38, with Kreiley second. Third was Jackson Millard, who won the 400 IM and finished second in the 100 back. Vlad Dubinin, the 100 free champ, was on both winning relays along with Caleb Duncan, who was the runner-up to Abdelrahman Elaraby (19.50) in the 50 free.

Murilo Sartori won the 500 free and was third in the 50 free. Michael Eastman paired a 200 free win with third in the 100 fly, behind teammate Haridi Sameh (47.06). Denis Loktev won the 200 fly and Ilia Sibirtsev claimed the mile.

Hunter Gubeno won the 100 back in 48.10 and the 200 back in 1:52.84 for the visiting Bearcats.
