DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Georgia Southern Swimming and Diving team had a successful final rehearsal against six different conference opponents today in a dual meet hosted by Davidson.

"It was certainly a tough and emotional two days. We were not very sharp through the first seven events but we rallied and started to compete for each other and we were much better,” said Head Coach Nathan Kellogg.
Amber Juncker led the Eagles, claiming those two wins of the day in the 1000 (10:39.19) and 500 Free (5:10.96). Kylee Parsons finished second both events, touching the plate in times of 10:44.70 and 5:11.48 respectively.
More second place finishes came from Christina Moran in the 200 Back (2:06.23), Sara Meisenhelder in the one-meter dive (243.05) and Elaina Lanson in the 50 Free (24.38). Meisenhelder and Lanson both added third place finishes to their scores in the three-meter dive (255.05) and 100 Free (53.98).
Megan Ostrom swam the 100 Breast in 1:06.53 And the 200 Breast in 2:26.57, good for two third place finishes as well. Other Eagles finishing third were Sarah Schwartz in the 200 Back (2:!0.91) and Becca Alves in the 200 IM (2:11.85).
The Eagles now have a little less than three weeks without competition and will turn focus to the CCSA Championships on Feb. 21-23.
