(WHEELING, WV), September 22, 2007 — Red Falls to Gold 183-227 in inaugural Red Gold Meet on Alumni Weekend.

The Varsity and Alumni teamed up for Wheeling Jesuit Swimming Team’s first ever Red/Gold Meet.  Varsity and Alumni Swimmers were divided up by Men’s captain Michael Phillips and Women’s Captain Ali Hengesbach in order to create this year’s team.  The gold Team took 3 of 4 relay events which inevitably led to the team’s win 227-183. 

Several Alumni had an outstanding day.  Gold team member Matthew Houllier (’03) won several events including both the 50 and 100 yard butterfly events.  Not to be outdone Red team member Jessica Bracamontes (’05) won the 100 yard butterfly.  Recent graduate Ryan Rico (’07) won the 50 yard breaststroke and 2000 graduate JoAnn Kazimer won the 50 yard freestyle.

Varsity Swimmer Ali Hengesbach won the 100 Breaststroke for the Gold Team.  Varsity wins also came from Red Team Seniors Michael Phillips and Patrick Snell.  Coach Rick West had this to say about the event, “It was great to see so many of our Alumni here at this event.  Our team has only been in existence a little over 10 years and already we have great support from our Alumni and friends.  I am really looking forward to see what the next ten years will bring for our program and the alumni who graduate from it.”  The Cardinals will compete next at the WVU Relays on Saturday, October 13th at 11:00am.
