Edinboro University men’s and women’s swimming competed against the Bloomsburg Huskies in their third meet of the season on Friday. The men fell 119-74, dropping to 1-2 on the season. The women lost 112-88, falling to 2-1.

“I was happy with most of the swims. We raced well in some cases, but we still need to work on the little things that affect our races,” said Head Coach Chris Rhodes.

“They are working extremely hard in the practice and are starting to get tired and it showed. We have a great opportunity this weekend to race and then we will be resting, which we are excited about.”

The men won three events, with the following swimmers clocking PSAC qualifying times:

— Nick Bradford claimed two qualifying times, first with a 1:59.15 mark in the 200-yard IM, and then a 48.91 second run in the 100 freestyle.

— Jackson Bangert qualified in the 100 butterfly with a time of 52.32 seconds.

— Freshman Ted Kinney clocked a time of 21.65 seconds in the 50 freestyle. He then added the 100 freestyle in 48.67.

— Michael Kocher qualified with a time of 55.74 for the 100 backstroke.

— Freshman Gerardo Ruiz qualified in the 100 backstroke, as well, with a time of 53.84.
