Cougar Swimmers Give Commanding Performance

GCC Women's Swimming - Swimmer diving into pool

The Genesee Community College men's and women's swimming teams hosted its Harvest Relays against Roberts Wesleyan College, Herkimer County Community College, Jamestown Community College and Erie Community College.

In combined team scores Genesee was first overall with 740 points with only Roberts Wesleyan coming within 300 points of the Cougars with 442 combined points. For each individual team, the men's team finished first with 486 points, while the women's team was third with 254.

The men's team was so dominant that not even the collective scores of the other four teams could have beaten them with Erie's 181, Roberts Wesleyan's 156, Herkimer's 69 and Jamestown's 36.

In addition the men's team took first place in all 12 events it participated in that included four relays and eight individual events.

The women's team had a very strong showing as well with finishing in first-place eight times and second-place twice in the 10 events it took part in.

The eight men's individual first-places were shared by three Cougars with Matthew Langerman, Ferran Martinez and Joan Ferrer; while the other four first-places were in relay competition.

Langerman took first in three freestyles races at 100, 200 and 500 yards. Martinez also captured three first places with two at 100 yards (backstroke, breaststroke) and the 200-yard IM. Ferrer won a pair of races with a first-place in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard backstroke. In addition, the trio were also involved in three separate relay wins.

The five women's first-places were split between Angel Priest and Nanako Shiozawa; while the other three first-places were in relay competition.

Shiozawa had three first-place finishes with a pair at 100 yards (freestyle, butterfly) and one at 200 yards (IM). Priest finished first in the 500-yard freestyle and the 100-yard backstroke, while finishing in second place in the 200-yard freestyle. Also with a second-place finish was Natalie Amico in the 50-yard freestyle. In addition, Shiozawa, Priest and Amico were part of all three first-place relays.
