Permanent link for GVSU Club Swim at the NDSC Irish Invitational on January 11, 2022

On December 4th, 2021 the GVSU swim club attended the NDSC Irish Invitational. They competed against a total of 15 teams, placing 13th overall with 67 points. 12 swimmers made the drive to Notre Dame, and for a few this was their first meet of the semester. Out of those 12 swimmers the women earned 33 points, putting them in 12th, while the men earned 34 points, putting them in 12th as well. Our distance swimmers of the meet, Jonah Cox and Veronica Lidy, earned us the most points. Lidy scored 9 points in the 200 IM (2:37.46) and 15 points in the 500 Freestyle (6:23.85). She contributed 24 points to the team. While Cox scored 9 points in the 500 Freestyle (5:43.44) and 9 points in the 100 Backstroke (1:03.76). He also gained us another 18 points. However, they weren’t the only ones to do good as we had a lot of great swims at this meet. Dom Ferracciolo earned us another 9 points with his swim in the 200 Breaststroke (2:29.77). Ferracciolo said that it felt good to get back in the water again. He enjoyed being with the team and getting the opportunity to cheer on his friends. Rosie Champion also had some good swims in her 50 freestyle (29.34), 50 butterfly (32.25), 100 IM (1:17.69), and her 50 breaststroke (39.00). Champion said, “Notre Dame was a great time! I did my personal best of the season and I believe that the team as a whole did pretty well! Though we didn’t get the most points of the meet, it was still a great environment all around! Everyone on the team was cheering and supporting each other the entire time. It was an amazing feeling to see the team be all together and happy to be there!”
