Sophomore Megan McGorry won the 500 free, 1000 free and 200 fly but the Central Connecticut swimming and diving team fell to New Hampshire by a score of 128-171 at the Jack Suydam Natatorium. Senior Erin Crowley as well as freshmen Kristen Malski and Alex Czaplicki also won events for the Blue Devils on Saturday afternoon.

McGorry, last week's NEC Swimmer of the Week, touched in at 5:09.00 in the 500 free, 10:30.25 in the 1000 free and 2:11.15 in the 200 fly to place first in each. She was also a member of the CCSU 400 medley relay team that was victorious against the Wildcats. Crowley, Malski and Czaplicki were the other three members on the relay team that timed in at 4:02.63.

Crowley also took home a first in the 200 freestyle, with a time of 1:57.46. The senior captain placed second in both the 50 and 100 free, touching in at 25.15 and 55.40, respectively. Malski's victory came in the 100 breaststroke (1:09.21), while Czaplicki took home first place in the 200 IM (2:09.49). Malski also recorded a second in the 200 breast, timing in at 2:29.80. Czaplicki finished second twice on Saturday, touching in at 59.35 in the 100 fly and 59.92 in the 100 backstroke.

Freshmen Mallory Miller and Sam Smolicz led the CCSU diving squad. Miller placed third in the three-meter event, scoring a 174.45. Smolicz scored a 190.12 to take fourth in the one-meter dive.

Both Central Connecticut and New Hampshire will next be competing in the Terrier Invitational at Boston University, November 21-23.
