WALTHAM, Mass. – It was almost a clean sweep for the Bentley University as seven of the eight weekly Northeast College swimming and diving awards went to Falcons.
The Swimmers of the Week were sophomores Mark Zoda (Nashua, N.H./Bishop Guertin HS) and Lucy Slowe (Millis/Millis HS) and the Divers of the Week were sophomore Jeremy Glick (South Windsor, Conn./South Windsor HS) and freshman Mary Huminski (Madison, Conn./Daniel Hand HS). Freshman Anthony Vizental (Concord, Calif./Clayton Valley GS) was the choice as the NE10 Men's Rookie of the Week.
Bentley also received both Relay Team of the Week awards for the third time in four weeks.
All were based on the Falcons' performances during Friday night's sweep of Brandeis University that boosted both teams to 4-0. The Bentley men own a 37-dual meet win streak and the women have won their last 25.
Zoda earned wins in both the 100 yard freestyle (47.19) and the 200 free (1:44.94), and also helped the Falcons take both relays with times of 3:32.77 in the 400 medley and 1:27.85 in the 200 free. It was the fastest 100 achieved in the conference to date and the 400 medley time broke the Dana Center pool record.
Slowe competed in four events and was part of four wins in the dual against Brandeis. She took first in both the 100 backstroke (1:00.31) and the 500 frees (5:11.32) and helped Bentley gain wins in both the 400 medley relay (4:05.31) and the 200 free relay (1:41.84). Her 500 free time was a Northeast-10 season-best and her 100 back clocking was the third best in the conference to date.
Glick took first in the three-meter diving with a score of 221.17. He also finished second in the one-meter diving with his 217.05 putting him only two points back of teammate Owen Busser.
Huminski swept the women's diving competitions. Her score off the one-meter board, 257.62, was a season-best, and she posted a 218.17 from the three-meter. It was her second Diver of the Week award this season, and also the second for Glick.
Vizental, the Rookie of the Week for the third time, was a triple-winner against Brandeis with times of 1:58.85 in the 200 butterfly, 2:14.47 in the 200 breaststroke and 2:01.78 in the 200 individual medley. He was also part of a 400 medley relay team that was second in 3:38.38.
Bentley broke a 13-year-old Dana Center pool record and posted the Northeast-10's best time of the season to date while winning the 400 medley relay against Brandeis in 3:32.77. Sophomores Oscar Chang (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hollow Hills West HS), Zach Papsco (Northport, N.Y./Northport HS) and Zoda teamed with junior Paul Homorodean (Milford, Conn./Joseph A. Foran HS).
The Bentley women opened the meet by swimming the 400 yard medley relay in 4:05.31, the second best posted in the NE10 thus far this season. Senior Ariana Revelas was joined by two other sophomores, Emily Sweet (Nashua, N.H./Nashua North HS) and Rona Mejiritski (Bowling Green, Ohio/Bowling Green HS).
