ARLINGTON, Va. – The Marymount University men's and women's swimming teams are set to compete in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championship Meet, beginning in Friday, March 1.
Junior Hayley Elizondo will lead the women's team into the meet, set to compete in three individual events. Fresh off of setting the program record for the 100-yard breaststroke (1:05.64) and the 200-yard breaststroke (2:23.78) at the Atlantic East Conference championships, she will compete in both in the ECAC meet.
Elizondo will also race in the 200-yard individual medley.
Senior Taylor Plumley will race the distance events for the Saints in the 500- and 1650-yard freestyles. Her time of 18:04.39 in the 1650 free in the Atlantic East meet was good for No. 2 in program history.
Junior Isabel Grimm will round out the individual events for the team, entering with the ninth-best time in program history in the 100-yard backstroke (1:02.34).
Elizondo, Grimm, and junior Jessie Bricker will all race in both relays for the Saints. They will team with Plumley in the 200-yard freestyle relay and senior Claire Cassidy in the 400-yard medley relay.
The men's team will enter the ECAC championships with seniors Ian Griffith and Isaiah Jones, junior Tedd Pham, and sophomore Max Klemm all coming off of impressive meets at the Atlantic East championships. The quartet will team in both the 200- and 400-yard medley relays.
Klemm will lead the Saints with four individual races in the 100-yard butterfly, the 100-yard backstroke, the 200-yard butterfly, and the 200-yard individual medley. In the 200 IM, he is coming of the sixth-best time in the program (2:00.78) at the Atlantic East championships; he also set the No. 7 time in the 100 fly (53.55 seconds) and the No. 6 time in the 100 back (55.46 seconds) at the meet.
Jones will race the 50- and 100-yard freestyles in the ECAC championships. He is coming off of a program-record 47.20-second effort in the 100 free at the Atlantic East meet.
Griffith and Pham will both be in the pool for two individual events, each, as well. Griffith will race the 100 fly and 200 fly, while Pham will compete in the 100- and 200-yard breaststrokes.
The Saints will be in action all weekend, with the meet continuing on Saturday, March 2, and Sunday, March 3.
