Matter, Bartlett take top diving honors vs. D-I Niagara

Meghan Bartlett and Jeff Matter both earned 1st place finishes in diving categories this past weekend.

In men's swimming and diving, Jeff Matter claimed first place off the 3-meter board against Niagara University on Saturday. His score of 281.65 provisionally qualified him for the NCAA meet. Matter was second off the 1-meter board with a score of 263.65.

Fellow diver Rafael Santiago was right on Matter's heels all day. Santiago was second off the 3-meter (256.85) and third off the 1-meter (258.35) boards.

Will Baker, Troy Lubanski and Jake Hewitt claimed a pair of second-place finishes.

Baker placed in the 50 free (22.72) and the 100 free (49.39). Lubanski's seconds came in the 200 IM (2:03.40) and 200 backstroke (2:06.50). Hewitt's near victories came in the 200 butterfly (2:00.45) and the 500 free (5:07.63).

Adam Clouthier finished second in the 200 breast stroke (2:17.34).

The Division I Purple Eagles, however, claimed a 131-104 team victory. The men are back in Steele Hall this weekend when they play host to R.I.T.

The women's team also took on Niagara in Steele Hall on Saturday, with the Purple Eagles taking a 132-111 victory. However, Fredonia once again dominated diving, as Meghan Bartlett won both the 1-meter (256.75) and 3-meter (261.35) boards.

On the 1-meter, she was followed by Heather Colby (244.56) and Samantha Kowalewski (193.65) in second and third places, respectively.

Colby and Kowalewski repeated their second, third-place finishes off the 3-meter board. Colby turned in a score of 239.10, while Kowalewski finished with a score of 216.00.
