For the second time in a month the Lenoir-Rhyne Men’s and Women’s Swimming traveled to the Levine Aquatic Center in Charlotte for a meet. This time the Bears fell to Queens University in a dual meet on Friday afternoon.
On the men’s side, the Bears won three of the eleven events. Alex Ballard got the Bears on the board with his 500 yard freestyle win. Alex Murphy and John Caroll finished second and third behind Ballard. Micah McRea kept the Bears going with his 100 Breaststroke win. Jacob Queen finished second behind McRea.
