ROCHESTER - The Jamestown Community College competed at Monroe Community College in a three-day swimming invitational last weekend and took fourth place in the seven school event.
The Jayhawk women placed third behind Buffalo State and Monroe.
The men were fourth behind Buffalo State, Monroe and Genesee CC.
"This meet was important to us as a team for two reasons,'' JCC coach Mike Giambruno said. ''It follows the same format as our regional meet in February so the swimmers and divers know what a three-day preliminary and finals-type meet feels like. It's a long day so they need to know how to mentally prepare for the event.
''Secondly it gives us a chance to compete against some great swim programs such as Buffalo State and Monroe."
For the women, Emily Holt won the 200 breaststroke in a time of 2:50.73 and also placed third in the 500 freestyle in a time of 5:44.28.
Kelsey Akin was first in the 200 backstroke in 2:27.67, edging out the second-place finisher by a foot. She also took a first in the 100 backstroke in 1:08.22
Victor Hallett was fifth place in the 200 backstroke in 2:18.58, a personal best by more four seconds.
John Trombetta took home a pair of fourth places in the 100 freestyle and the 100 breaststroke in 54.04 and 1:10.98 respectively.
The women's 200 freestyle relay team of Emily Windoft, Sarah Madison, Holt and Akin placed third in 1:55.85 while the men's relay team of Nick Burt, Derek Hosier, Victor Hallett and John Trombetta placed fifth in the 400 freestyle relay in a 3:47.24.
The Jayhawks are home on Wednesday for a dual meet with Mercyhurst North East at 6 p.m.
