Men’s, Women’s Swimming Finishes Up Season at NYU Last Chance Meet


NEW YORK, N.Y. - Several members of the University of Scranton men's and women's swimming & diving teams finished up their respective regular seasons on Saturday, taking part in the NYU Last Chance Meet.

For the women, sophomore Lauren Byrne (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) was unable to hit an NCAA qualifying cut in the lone event she swam in, the 100-breaststroke, where she finished in 1:06.69. Last week at the Landmark Conference Championships, Byrne was named the Swimmer of the Year after recording "B" cuts in the 200-IM and 100-breaststroke.

Elsewhere, sophomore Audrey Campo (Clarks Summit, Pa./Scranton Prep) competed in the 200-breaststroke, where she logged in a time of 1:05.72, rounding out the competitors for the women's team who took part in the meet.

For the men's team, sophomore John Cannilla (Florham Park, N.J./Oratory Prep) won the 500-freestyle with a time of 4:43.35. Fimmano also swam in the 50-free, placing third in 22.25, while also competing in the 400-IM, where he hit the wall in 4:39.26.

The last men's swimmer to compete in the event was sophomore Jack Donnelly (Washington Crossing, Pa./Council Rock North), who hit the wall in 57.50 in the 100-breaststroke and 57.78 in the 200-breaststroke to round out the finishers on the day for Scranton.

Several Royals swimmers will not await to see if they qualify for a spot in an event at the upcoming NCAA Division III Championships, which will take place Mar. 20-23 in Greensboro, N.C.
