    WORCESTER, MA (Feb. 3) - The University of Connecticut swimming and diving teams combined to win 26 out of 30 events en route to comfortable wins over Holy Cross. The UConn men posted a 161-101 victory and up their mark to 6-3 on the year while the UConn women took a 143-126 decision over the Crusaders to improve to 7-2.

    The men’s team claimed every event but the 100 backstroke to snap a two-meet slide. Tristan Jones continued his good results of late by taking the 200 freestyle in 1:55.66 and the 50 freestyle in 21.79. Single event winners for UConn included Mike McNulty (500 freestyle), Brian Thomas (50 backstroke), Bobby Folan (50 breaststroke), Tim Wong (100 butterfly), Tim Jones (100 freestyle), Bill Monaghan (55.99), Jon Kunces (1:03.95), Matt Smith (50 butterfly) and Dustin Rogers (200 individual medley).

    The UConn women were led by Jenny Chang, Ryan Smith and Courtney Townsend who all won a pair of events. Townsend captured the 50 freestyle in 25.57 seconds and winning the 100 freestyle in 55.29 while Smith claimed first place in the 200 freestyle (1:58.66) and the 100 breaststroke (1:11.50). Chang was a winner in the 50 breaststroke and the 200 individual medley. Like with the men, UConn head coach Bob Goldberg gave many student-athletes opportunities to shine against Holy Cross and he was not disappointed as six different Huskies won an event in addition to Smith and Townsend. The other victorious Huskies were Cassie Novak (1650 freestyle), Liz Campbell (500 freestyle), Catherine Kolodzey (50 backstroke), Heather Grieb (100 butterfly), Cathy Brown (100 backstroke) and Diane Duncheskie (50 butterfly).
