Case spoils senior day for Gators

In their final meet at Mellon Pool, the Allegheny women’s swimming and diving seniors scored several critical points, but two top-three diving sweeps were unable to topple a late Case Western Reserve rally, as the Spartans defeated the Gators, 153.5-146.5, on Saturday afternoon.

Seniors Emily Capone and Lauren Krowitz combined for three wins, sparking an impressive afternoon for the Gators. Capone picked up two more regional qualifying scores on the boards, scoring a 284.00 on the one-meter and a 274.12 on the three-meter to lead a pair of 1-2-3 finishes for the Allegheny divers. Sophomore Erica Salizzoni and freshman Veronica Schuver each grabbed second and third place finishes, respectively.

Sarah Wilhoit, Laurel McNish and Jamie Beers were also honored prior to the beginning of Saturday’s meet. Beers picked up a fourth place finish in the 200 back, scoring for the Gators with a time of 2:27.78.

Senior Kevin Crooks led the men during a 174-90 loss to Case, winning the 400 IM in 2:02.99, leading a 1-3-4 finish for the Gators that saw freshman Danny Litwin, the reigning Allegheny Male Athlete of the Week, finished in 2:04.20, followed by a 2:10.76 by sophomore David Retta. Litwin and Crooks finished 3-4 in the 200 free, as the two were both able to score for the Gators in the event led by Litwin’s 1:50.31.

Freshman Jack Bailey picked up a win in the 50 free, hitting the wall in 22.30. Bailey finished the afternoon with three top-two finishes, finishing second in the 100 fly (54.79) and 100 free (48.44). The freshman would improve his 50 free time in the 200 free relay for the second week in a row, anchoring a 21.55 en route to a 1:30.84, second place total relay time. Sophomore Garrett Devenney would close out the Allegheny wins with a first place finish in the 1,000 free. Devenney would finish the race in 10:17.21, taking the race by over 20 seconds.
