Last weekend, the UW Oshkosh men’s and women’s swim and dive teams traveled to Brown Deer, WI where they participated in the Wisconsin College Showcase along with six other universities.

This meet was non-scored, meaning no school was fighting for the top spot to bring back home. This meet simply showcased some of the best swimmers in the state and their talents.

Some top leaders from both men’s and women’s were junior Jarrett Leider, freshman Jack Miller, senior Sydney Challoner, freshman Mariah Marowsky and junior Becca Birrel, who either brought home top ten or top fifteen finishes in their respective events.

Leider took home a 9th place finish in the 500-yard freestyle race with a time of 5:01:07. He also took home a 12th-place finish in the 200-yard freestyle, completing the race in 1:48:94.

Two of the men’s relay teams brought home an eighth place and a sixth place while the women’s team brought home a sixth place finish in a 400-yard freestyle relay.

Challoner topped the board, bringing home four top-ten finishes for UWO with her ninth place finish in both the 200-yard breaststroke and 200-yard individual medley, an assist in the 6th place 400-yard freestyle relay and 7th place in the 200-yard individual medley relay.

Matt Wilke brought home two fourth place finishes off the one meter and three-meter dives while freshman Danielle Tesky brought home 12th in the one-meter and 14th in the three-meter.

Freshman Allison Wucak finished 17th in the one-meter and 16th in the three-meter as well.

UWO swim and dive teams will travel to Waukesha on Oct. 25 to take on Carroll University.
