The stands were full, the balcony was packed and the energy was electric as Loyola showed out to see their swim team compete in their only home meet of the year.

The Wolf Pack did not host an easy opponent on Jan. 9. NCAA Division-1 opponent Incarnate Word University showed up to The Den, but the Wolf Pack’s aquatic athletes were accustomed to the challenge, as the Cardinals were the fourth opponent they faced that was in the NCAA.

The Wolf Pack swam strong, breaking records and milestones along the way.

Mass communication junior Paige Carter etched her name in the school record books yet again. Carter entered into the 1000-yard freestyle for only the second time this year and earned a program-best time of 10:46.83. Carter also finished with 2:14.75 in the women’s 200 IM.

Business junior Warren Massimini took the top spot in the 50-yard freestyle. He finished with a time of 21.71. Massimini also finished in second place in the men’s 100 free with a time of 47.71.

Business sophomore Elizabeth Skinner also had a remarkable performance in the water. Skinner swam the second-fastest time of the year in the women’s 50-yard freestyle and placed third in women’s 100-yard freestyle with a season-best 55.79.

Finance junior Trey James set a season-best for the program and himself in the men’s 200 IM with a time of 1:57.90, claiming the second place spot.

Environmental studies freshman Earle Madden IV nearly broke is own personal best times in the men’s 100-yard breaststroke and the men’s 200 breaststroke. He earned 59.99 and 2:13.08 in the respective events.
