Over the weekend the men's and women's swimming teams

traveled to Buffalo, NY to compete in the Atlantic 10 swimming Championships. Senior Michael Zennedjian

won the award for Atlantic 10's most outstanding performer while head coach Brent MacDonald was voted men's Coach of the Year by league coaches. The men's team finished the

meet in third place with 522 points while the women's team

finished in eighth with 246 points. The medal count total ended with Xavier winning four gold and six bronze medals.

Zennedjian, who won four gold medals over the course of

the weekend, has now totaled 16 medals over the course of four years swimming for Xavier. Out of those 16 medals, nine of them have been gold. Zennedjian posted a time of

1:48.85 seconds when he won the 200 yard butterfly. He then was able to win the 200-yard individual medley, the 400-yard medley and the 400-yard medley relay. Zennedjian won his gold in the 400-yard medley relay with juniors Pablo Morejon, Joe O'Hara and Samuel Conchuratt. During the men's 400 yard freestyle relay Zennedijan, Morejon,

Conchuratt, and sophomore Armando Moss won the bronze

with a final time of 3:01.78. Conchuratt was also able to

gather a bronze medal in the men's 200-yard individual medley when he came in third with a time of 1:49.49.

Morejon, Moss, Conchuratt and sophomore John Kinney earned another bronze medal in the men's 200-yard freestyle relay. They finished a little over a second

later than the winning group by posting a finishing time of

1:22.17. Freshman Carolyn Stewart, who had a strong rookie season, finished with two bronze medals. "We've never worked harder and it really showed this year. I'm

very proud of our team and what this means for our future," head coach Brent MacDonald said.
