Chicago, IL - The Illinois Tech men's and women's swim teams hosted Knox College in a sprint meet on Saturday, December 14 and won 191-41 and 147-40, respectively.  Despite inches of snow on the ground, the meet was underway on time with plenty of home team supporters for the Hawks.  
 
The men led off the meet with a 1-2 sweep in the 200 yard medley relay.  The top team of Joseph Valio, Billy Bafia, Stefan Nyholm, and Luke Strenski posted a time of 1:48.88.  
 
The men's 200 yard freestyle showcased a dual between sophomore Kevin Boldt and senior Ray Mohaimani.  Boldt took an early lead at the 100, but Mohaimani showed speed on the back half taking the lead on the third 50 and finally holding off Boldt by .04.  The two men went 1:51.10 and 1:51.14 respectively.  "It's always fun to see teammates race, which is why I put Kevin and Ray next to one another.  I don't think they would have been as fast if there was a lane in between them," said head coach Eric Bugby.
 
This meet also featured official 50's of each stroke, which will count as team records.  On the women's side, freshmen Emily Fusilero took part in another dramatic finish.  She was edged by Knox's Finnelly 36.11 to 36.51 in the 50 yard breaststroke.  Junior captain Billy Bafia claimed the men's 50 yard breaststroke and lead a 1-2-3 sweep with sophomore Connor McGuire and senior Zhefu Chen.  The women's 50 yard freestyle produced two in-season best times.  Fusilero swam a 27.65, good enough for third place.  Sophomore Nicole Frantz swam a 29.12 for fourth.
 
Boldt redeemed himself with a win in the 100 yard freestyle.  His time of 52.30 touched out sophomore teammate Tanner Grieve's 52.98.  Sophomore Michael Dobben completed the Scarlet Hawks' 1-2-3 sweep with a time of 56.67.
 
In the 100 yard breaststroke, Fusilero led the ladies with an in-season best time of 1:19.03, placing second in the event.  "Emily is steadily improving.  Each meet she has dropped time and is coming into form at the right time with conference approaching in February," added Bugby.
 
The final relay provided the most excitement of the meet.  The men divided the team into three equal relays allowing the men to race one another.  The race was dead even going into the last turn at the 175.  The anchors of Mohaimani, Bafia, and sophomore Matthew Williams pushed hard through the final 15 meters, but it was the team of Strenski, McGuire, Chen, and Mohaimani who claimed the win with a slim 1:37.55 to 1:37.78 victory.  The "C" relay finished slightly behind with a 1:38.52.
 
The Scarlet Hawks are off until January 24, 2014 when the men and women take on Eureka College at Ecko Pool.  The meet will also serve as the team's senior meet and teacher appreciation day.  It's also the last home meet of the season for the Hawks.  Come out and support the team!
