January 29, 2012

This past Friday, the Lynx Swimming team traveled to Lewis University to face former Lincoln College Asst. Coach, Steve O’Leary and the Lewis Flyers.

The Lynx, put in a stellar performance, winning 13 of 22 events. The men and women shut out Lewis in all four relay events (200 Medley & 400 Free). Individual event winners were: Maggie Rea (1000 free & 500 free); Michael Palleros (50 free & 100 free); Paula Carvajal (200 IM); Libby Hess (200 Breast); Shelby Miller (200 IM & 200 Back); and Max Spencer (200 Breast).

Max Spencer set a new pool record in the 200 Breast.

Before coming a GA for Lewis University, Steve O’Leary was an Asst. Coach at Lincoln College for 3 seasons. Lincoln College Head Coach, Jake Sexton is also an alum of Lewis University.

Coach Sexton said, “I thought we swam pretty well this weekend. Especially since we have been in our heavy training phase the past month. What I like the most is that despite how we were feeling, we got up and raced. This meet was a test of how we can overcome, and we rose to the occasion. We are about one month away from NJCAA National Championships, and it looks like we are shaping up for a good end of the season.”
