By ODU Athletics
Jan. 9, 2002
Norfolk, VA-The Old Dominion men's and women's swimming and diving teams will host their annual scholarship meet on January 19th at Scrap Chandler Pool in the ODU Field House. The Monarchs will be hosting Colonial Athletic Association foes James Madison and Davidson starting at 1 p.m.
The men's side is currently 4-2 this year thanks in part to outstanding performances by seniors Mark Giusto (Va. Beach, VA), Steve Corson (Delmar, NY) and Joe Kieffer (Hamburg, NY). The Monarchs have defeated George Washington, George Mason, Towson and the College of Charleston so far in 2001-2002.
The women, currently 3-3, will be led by the defending CAA swimmer of the year Kara Fichthorn (Landsdowne, PA) and the CAA diver of the year, Ashley Kirchner (Arlington, VA). Freestyle ace Jamie D'Agostino (Ardsley, NY), who had a strong showing at the Terrapin Cup Invitational, will be another Lady Monarch to watch during the scholarship meet.
Tickets for the scholarship swim meet are $5 and will be available at the door. For more information contact the ODU ticket office at 757-683-4444.
