Nov. 14, 2008

JENISON, Mich. - The Michigan State swimming and diving teams each picked up wins over Grand Valley State on Friday (Nov. 14) as the men's team won 158.5 - 82.5 while the women's team cruised to a 169-72 victory. The Spartans were dominant, wining 25 of the evening's 26 events. It was the second consecutive win for the women's team, which is now 2-3, and the first victory of the year for the men, who now stand at 1-1 on the season.

The dual meet took place at Jenison High School with a crowd of more than 650 in attendance.

"I think we had a record crowd tonight," said MSU head coach Matt Gianiodis. "Grand Rapids is a very good swimming community and I think everyone appreciated being here tonight. I hope we can do this again next year."

The Spartans turned in several exceptional performances and perhaps the most noteworthy were by sophomores kevin Puskaric and Becca Ebner who each broke pool records. Puskaric won the 100 breaststroke with a time of 56.12 and Ebner touched the wall first in the 100 fly with a time of 56.09.

Ebner, along with Stephanie Fisher, Kerry Sodonis and Julie Kahn, kicked off the meet by setting a new pool record in the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:45.41.

Heather Kiluk was the other female to win two events, as she swam to first-place finishes in the 400 IM (4:27.42) and 100 back (59.87).

On the men's side, senior Marcus Poteete and junior Sho Koba each picked up two fist-place finishes on the night. Poteete won both the 400 IM (4:10.46) and 100 fly (52.15). Koba won the 200 free by over 2.5 seconds, touching the wall in 1:40.77, and later picked up first in the 100 free with a time of 46.36.

"Sho had a great meet," said Gianiodis. "He swam really well and I'm happy for him because he's been working hard."

Other Spartans finishing first on at the meet included: Laura DeFord (1,000 free), Mike Van Beek (1,000 free), Erinn Wertz (200 free), Fisher (50 free), Joe Schmitt (50 free), Kahn (100 free), Mark Schramm (500 free) and Sarah Biasello (100 breast).

The Spartans showed their strength in the diving events once again as David Gary, Alicia Mokedanz and Jordan Jackson all qualified for NCAA Zones. Garry took first on the one-meter board with a 280.79 and first on the three-meter with a score of 323.25. Jackson, a sophomore, scored a 312.90 on the one-meter which was good for first, while Mokedanz took second with a 307.27.

The men and women's teams will be back in the pool next week at the Northwestern Invitational in Evanston, Ill., Nov. 21-23.
