UE Swimming and Diving to finish regular season

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

In their final regular season meet of the season, the University of Evansville men's and women's swimming and diving teams travel to Carbondale, Ill. to take on Southern Illinois on Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

“This will be our final regular season meet and we look forward to this preparing us for the conference championships on both the men's and women's side,” UE head coach Rickey Perkins said.  “I am excited to see us compete and know where we stand entering our respective championships.”

Last weekend, the women came up just short against Illinois State by a 164.5-134.5 final at Wyttenbach Pool.  Michelle Tipton had another stellar meet for the Aces on her way to being named the Missouri Valley Conference Swimmer of the Week.  In the 400 free relay, Tipton teamed with Sam Montgomery, Michaela Kent and Danielle Freeman to earn the win with a 3:33.36.

She also picked up a pair of wins on her own.  She took top honors in the 100 free (52.30) and 200 free (1:52.65).

The men swam at Indiana University last Friday, falling by a final of 139-104.  Ashton Bishop was the top performer for UE.  Bishop picked up a win in the 100 fly, posting a 52.25 to top Prescott Marcy, who finished in 55.84.  He took second placed in the 50 free, falling by just .43 seconds. 

Bishop was also part of a group that included Troy Burger, Matt Childress and O'Brien that took second in the 200 medley relay.  They swam a 1:35.43, falling by just over a second.
