MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Oct. 4, 2014) – Men's swimming earned their first two wins of the season, defeating Lindsey Wilson College (98-94) and Milligan College (121-47) respectively.

The Women's team defeated Columbia College (96-78), falling to Lindsey Wilson College (86-106) and Milligan College (84-104) in Saturday's dual matches.

Coach Gilchrest commented: "Both teams swam well this weekend. Competing in a short course meters pool was certainly a new challenge for us, but gave the swimmers valuable experience. The men's and women's meets were close from start to finish, each swimmer knows each swim earns valuable points for the team, so every swim counts and every swimmer is important.

It was a great swim meet to watch our teams compete, push each other, and cheer each other on, we are learning a lot about ourselves as individuals and as a team".

Emmanuel will be off for fall break and then will compete against King/Warren Wilson/Life University in a quad meet at their first home meet of the season, Saturday, October 25, starting at 12 noon in the Shaw Athletic Center.
