STATESBORO —Georgia Southern Swimming had its senior day Saturday during the final home meet of the season.

Seniors Elizabeth Chemey, Markie Duffy, Ashley Kubel, and Gretchen Mossburg were honored during the meet. 

GS ended up losing the meet 120-111 to North Florida, even though they won five of the 11 swimming events.

The meet began with two wins for the Eagles with a first-place finish in the 200 Medley Relay by Chemey, Isabelle Bray, Jessica Ware and Holland Danskin with a time of 1:52.84

“I am so proud of how hard our women competed today,” Head Coach Amanda Caldwell said. “It was a team effort and what a way to send our seniors out with a close meet coming down to the last races.”

The Eagles will be back in action hosting their Diving Invitational Saturday, Jan. 18.
