Cincinnati is coming off back-to-back difficult meets after the UC men and women fell to Miami University on Friday and placed third in a tri-meet with Louisville and Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

On Saturday against the Cardinals and Eagles, UC was led by freshman Helena Pikhartova (100-yard breaststroke), senior Liz Hansson (50-yard freestyle) and sophomore Werokina Wasiakowska (100-yard freestyle), who each recorded an individual first-place finish. In the men’s division, junior Roberto Nevarez recorded the Bearcats' top individual finish with a third-place showing in the 100-yard butterfly.

At the Miami meet in Oxford, Ohio last Friday, senior Haywood Miller paced the Bearcats with two first-place victories in the men’s 100 and 200-yard breaststrokes. Pikhartova, Miller’s UC counterpart, also earned two first-place finishes in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes against the Redhawks.
