The Knights hosted Adelphi and Baruch in the annual Alumni Swim Meet at the Queens College Aquatics Center in Flushing last Thursday.

While Queens College swimmers turned in some impressive individual performances, ultimately the Knights were unable to capture first in the team competitions.

The women’s swimming and diving team claimed a 62-38 win over Baruch, but was felled by Adelphi, 58-42. The men’s team would lose to both the Bearcats and the Panthers, as well, by respective margins of 72-17 and 75-22.

Junior Jennifer Arana-Perez outclassed her competition in the 200-yard freestyle (2:06.61) and 100-yard butterfly (1:01.88). Arana-Perez also swam a near-perfect anchor leg in the 200-yard freestyle relay event, as her time of 25.92 seconds propelled QC to a second-place finish in the event.

Gabriela Almeida claimed first place in the 500-yard freestyle race with a time of 5:44.91, almost a full five seconds better than her nearest competitor. The sophomore also earned a second-place finish in the 1000-yard free with a time of 12:07.93.

Fellow second-year swimmer Anna Lee posted second-place efforts in the 200-yard individual medley (2:13.77) and the 100-yard breaststroke (1:13.08), while senior Nicole Weinsheimer earned 143.25 points one-meter diving competition.

On the men’s side, senior Jordan Melidor-Fuxis was dominant in the 50-yard freestyle (22.45) and 100-yard butterfly (54.63). The senior was nearly three-for-three in his swims, as his time of 56.15 seconds in the 100-yard backstroke earned him second-place distinction.

The Knights will return to action on November 18, traveling to Kings Point to compete in the USMMA Invitational.
