Another fruitful performance for Milligan College’s swimming team.
The men and women each defeated West Virginia Tech on Saturday at Steve Lacy Fieldhouse. Evan Alfano recorded two victories, while Sarah Walsh’s winning time qualified her for the NAIA Nationals.
“We had a wonderful meet,” Milligan coach R.C. Weston said. “Compared to our last meet, they were definitely more rested. You could tell that the bodies weren’t as broken down, after the winter training. We had some great swims.”
Walsh prevailed in the women’s 200-meter butterfly (2:34.01) over teammate Mari Kate Walker (2:47.18). Alfano took the men’s 200 free style (2:03.39) over Mars Hill’s Sal Russo (2:05.89), and the 100 freestyle (55.32) over Mars Hill’s Hudson Tucker (56.68).
