Green Gets The Win in Annual Swim and Dive Intrasquad Competition
By Jake Henning
The FGCU Swim and Dive team hosted their annual Green and Blue intrasquad meet Friday night, with the Green squad coming out on top by a score of 135-118.
Senior Petra Halmai was a huge part in Green’s success, as she collected three first-place finishes. Halmai picked up those wins in the 150 Breast, the 150 Fly and the 50 Back.
“The team always brings great energy and to see so many of our new Eagles contribute in such a big way was awesome,” said head coach Dave Collins. “I’m excited to get back to training and see how we can build on these results as we head into November.”
While the meet was a chance to get the team back in their groove, multiple Eagles had set meet records.
“In addition, I’d like to shoutout Alicja (Ulicka) for setting the 150 Back record by almost two full seconds and Petra (Halmai) going four seconds faster in the 150 Breast,” Rollins said.
Halmai made a huge effort by swimming a 1:39.34 in the 150 Breast, while Freshman Alicja Ulicka became the first swimmer on the night to break a record time, recording a 1:29.52 in the 150 Back.
The rest of Swim and Dive’s schedule has not been released, but FGCU has been in contact with both the CCSA Conference and the NCAA to create the best plan forward.
