Louisville vs. Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, Ohio, January 12. THE University of Louisville swimming and diving teams came off their month-long break to beat BIG EAST rival Cincinnati Bearcats by winning 26 of 32 events. The men won 187-95 with the women prevailing 211-95.

"This was a god meet after not competing for the last month," said U of L swim coach Arthur Albiero. "Clearly we are much farther along as a team than we were a year ago. Cincinnati is always a tough opponent."

The women were led by Anna Dishuck who won three events, touching first in the 200-free, the 100-free, and the 50-free. Newcomer Therese Bergstrom won her debut with firsts in the 100- and 200-breast. Leslie Van Winkle added to the point total with wins in the 200-fly and the 400-IM. Other winners for the women include Sarah Andrews in the 1650-free, Alana Berrocal in the 100-back, Nicole Cindric in the 200-back and Nicole Landisch in the 100-fly.

The men were led by double winner Andrei Radzionau who place first in the 200-free and the 100-free. Shane Lichtenberg touched first in the grueling 1650-free and then came back for the win in the 500-free. Other winners include Carolos Van Isschot in the 100-back, Vali Preda in the 100-breast, Adam Madarassy in the 200-fly and Andrei Teudean in the 200-back.

For the divers, Robbie Lewis swept the 1-meter and 3-meter boards, with Sarah Sandroni taking the 1-meter board for the women.

"This was a dominant performance against a team that normally gives us a lot of trouble," said Albiero. "Hopefully, we can ride some momentum into our next meet at Notre Dame."
