YORK, Pa. – The season may be over for the Salisbury University men's and women's swim teams, but both squads continue to receive accolades for their performances throughout the season. The Capital Athletic Conference released its All-Conference teams on Wednesday, and 11 Sea Gulls found their names on the list.
Five members of the women's team were named All-CAC, including the 400-yard medley relay team comprised of juniors Robin Stone and Jenna Petrella, sophomore Sarah Ault and freshman Danielle Dunn. Stone, Ault and Dunn also teamed up with junior Kelly Closs in the 200-yard medley relay and finished third to earn all-conference honors in that event.
Dunn was the only Sea Gull on the women's side to earn individual All-CAC honors; her second-place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke was Salisbury's top performance of the meet.
The men's relay teams also saw great success at the CAC Championships, and six Salisbury athletes were named All-CAC as a result. The foursome comprised of senior Joe Wisda, juniors Steve Eyler and Jason Preston and freshman Chris Franklin earned conference honors after their podium finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay. Eyler and Wisda also joined forces with sophomores Eric Robichaud and Paul Zoli in the 400-meter freestyle relay, finishing third.
The 11 All-CAC swimmers improves upon the total from last season; in 2009-10, seven Sea Gull swimmers were named all-conference.
