The Marshall University swimming and diving team moved to 4-0 this season after defeating Davidson College and Old Dominion University this weekend.

Leading the way for the Herd was a trio of divers. Megan Wolons, Heather Lonkert and Kelly Toner placed first, second and third, respectively, in the meet’s one-meter diving event.

“Our divers again were the MVPs,” head coach Bill Tramel said.

Wolons and Lonkert’s scores both qualified for the NCAA Zone Diving Championships in March.

“I am very happy with how the divers did,” head diving coach Andrew Helmich said. “We swept the one meter with both (Lonkert) and (Wolons) making zones. Making zones on the one meter is an important milestone for both divers, and if all of our divers continue to improve at the rate they have been so far, we are set to have a great season.”

In the pool, freshman Caroline Wanner won the 400-yard individual medley and placed second in the 200-yard backstroke event, while junior Chloe Parsemain won the 100-yard butterfly.

Tramel said despite the two victories, the team has corrections to make before the conference championships.

“We have another two-day competition next week in Cleveland,” Tramel said. “That is by design to prepare for the four-day Conference USA Championships. We gained a lot from this meet. Now, we must work on improving our personal inefficiencies.”
