Emory, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's men's and women's swim teams rolled to a dual-meet sweep of Old Dominion Athletic Conference rival Emory & Henry Saturday afternoon at the E&H Aquatic Center.
Lynchburg's men cruised to victory by a 131-69 score, while the Hornet women pulled away with wins in the day's final five events to pull away for a 112-87 triumph.
Freshmen Parker Hayungs and Canaan Monteith each had a hand in three event victories for the Hornet men. Hayungs took top honors in the 400-meter individual medley (5:11.63) and 100-meter freestyle (57.65) while also swimming the anchor leg of Lynchburg's 200-meter freestyle relay -- along with Kellen Campbell, Kevin Bennett, and Chris Jennings -- which won in 1:46.93.
Monteith led off with the backstroke leg of Lynchburg's first-place 200-meter medley relay -- 1:58.74 with Jennings, Jason Weed, and Mason Swanner -- and closed with wins in the 800-meter freestyle (9:58.69) and 100-meter backstroke (1:03.42).
Weed added top honors in the 100-meter butterfly (1:03.05) and second in the 400-meter freestyle, and Bennett won the 400 free (4:38.72). Brandon Goddin also claimed a pair of heat victories in the sprint freestyle events for the Hornets.
On the women's side, freshman Claire Galloway led the Lynchburg charge with wins in the 100-meter freestyle (1:05.18) and breaststroke (1:18.47).
Corrinn Ford helped the Hornets recover from a slow start with the women's team's first event win of the day in the 50-meter freestyle (29.49), and Abbie Arthur finished second in the event and later won the 400 free (5:19.19) as part of Lynchburg's late charge.
Lynchburg's swim teams both improve to 3-1 in dual meets in their inaugural seasons, including 3-0 marks against ODAC opponents.
The Hornets will be back in action Saturday, Nov. 9 in the Lynchburg Invitational at the Liberty University Natatorium.
