Jan 23, 2000

State College, Pa., January 22, 2000 - Penn State was victorious in 10 of 11 swimming events as it defeated Big Ten rival Indiana 150-93 on Saturday afternoon at McCoy Natatorium. The Lions won eight of nine individual swimming events and both relays in claiming its second straight dual meet triumph. The only events in which a PSU athlete did not finish first were the 1000 freestyle and both of the afternoon's diving events. The Lions produced the top-two finishers in four of the individual swimming events.

Holden Comeau (Carlisle, Pa.) paced Penn State with victories in the 400 and 100 freestyle events. He recorded a team-season-best time of 45.64 in winning the 100 freestyle. Comeau also was a member of the Lions' first-place 400 freestyle relay squad. Josh Weaver (York, Pa.) won the 200 backstroke for the fifth-straight meet with a time of 1:48.96. The 400 medley relay team of Weaver, Matt Teeter (Gettysburg, Pa.), Eugene Botes (Glen Mills, Pa.) and Bob Molettiere (Harleysville, Pa.) registered Penn State's season-best time at 3:19.42.

Indiana (4-1, 2-1) was led by divers Ryan Kosanic and Tom Davidson. Kosanic won the 1-meter event while Davidson captured the 3-meter. Joe Trent produced the Hoosiers' lone swimming victory by winning the 1000 freestyle.

Penn State (3-1, 1-1) will face its second straight Big Ten opponent this weekend (Jan. 28-29) when it travels to Iowa City to face the Hawkeyes. The meet will be a two-day event with Friday's action beginning at 8 p.m. and resuming on Saturday at 1p.m.
