ERIE, Pa. -- Fredonia State fell short on both the men's and women's sides Saturday at Division II Gannon University. The men dropped their meet 137-99. The women fell 142-100.

In the process, a pair of school records were set.

Senior Cassie Austin (Cuba/Cuba-Rushford) had a time of :55:28 in the 100-yard freestyle, which placed her second in the event, but also broke her own school record. Noor El-Tahawy (Port Washington/Schreiber), a freshman, set a new mark in the 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1:59.11, good enough for third place on the afternoon.

Sophomore Kelly Sponholz (Alden/Alden) was the Devils' lone double-winner for the women. She claimed 1-meter springboard diving with a score of 234.95 points. She was also victorious off the 3-meter board with a 259.80 mark, and remained unbeaten this season in both events.

Sophomore Emily Dizer (Tonawanda/Sweet Home) was the only other winner for the women, claiming the 100-yard backstroke in 1:05.82.

For the men, El-Tahawy touched first in the 200 individual medley at 2:02.95. Freshman Michael Seay (Grand Island/Grand Island) won the 100-yard freestyle in 49.67.
