Women's Swimming & Diving Earns Second at Ithaca Invitational

ITHACA, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo first-year Lauren Siegel earned three top-five finishes and was a member of the Knights' fourth-place 800 free relay to pace the team as it took second place at the Ithaca Invitational over the weekend.

Siegel took third in the 100 back (59.17), fourth in the 400 IM (4:36.63) and fifth in the 200 IM (2:09.19) while also swimming the first leg of the 800 free relay that took fourth with a time of 7:58.75. Junior Sydney Ng took third place in the 200 back, finishing in 2:05.79 while junior Nancy Nasky took fourth in the 1,650 free (17:26.90). First-years Noelle Staso, Maddie Knight and Diedra Osula teamed with junior Kaitlin Doherty to take third in the 200 free relay (1:38.77).

The Knights finished second with 1,202.5 points over the three-day event, trailing only NCAA Division I affiliate Cornell (2,279.5). Geneseo finished as the top Division III competitor, topping local rivals Rochester and Nazareth as well as NCAA Division II teams Le Moyne and Shippensburg.

Geneseo will return to action after the holiday break with a dual meet at Case Western Reserve on Jan. 20.
