-- Men's and Women's Swimming to Take on Nation's Best at Stevens Tech --
A week removed from earning key wins in Ewing, NJ, the Johns Hopkins men's and women's swimming teams will make their way back up I-95 for a highly anticipated matchup against Stevens Tech in Hoboken, NJ tomorrow (1/19). The men's and women's teams of Stevens are both currently ranked sixth in the nation.
The third-ranked Hopkins men (6-0) are fresh off a 197-135 defeat of TCNJ and a 246-86 rout of Division II West Chester on January 13. The Blue Jays' Justin Tang and Joseph Acquaviva swept the top-two spots in the 200 IM, while Greg Kogut and Nick Schmidt took first and second in the 200 Fly. Dylan Davis and Tang also took the top-two spots in the 200 Back.
The No. 4 Blue Jay women (5-1) took down previously unbeaten West Chester on January 13 by a slim margin, 168-164. Hopkins flexed its muscle with a dominating performance in the 50 Free, as Megan Auzenbergs, Sarah Rinsma and Kylie Ternes swept the top-three spots. Ana Bogdanovski had a strong first place showing in the 100 Free, clocking an NCAA provisional time of 52.19.
A portion of the men's and women's swimming teams are also scheduled to square off against St. Mary's this afternoon in the Newton White Athletic Center. The meet will begin at 3:30 pm.
-- Men's and Women's Basketball Travel to Dickinson in Search of Revenge --
The women's basketball team (7-8, 5-5 CC) takes a four-game winning streak into Carlisle, PA for a rematch with Dickinson on Saturday. A starkly different team from when it lost to the Red Devils by five points at home on December 4, Hopkins is eager to even the season series. The Blue Jays have trailed for a total of just seven minutes in their last 160 minutes of play.
The men's basketball team (9-7, 5-4 CC) looks to return to the win column against Dickinson after a heart-breaking double overtime loss to Franklin & Marshall Wednesday night. Sophomore Jimmy Hammer was on fire for Hopkins against F&M, pouring in a game-high 21 points, including five 3-pointers. The Blue Jays hope to avenge a 78-72 loss to the Red Devils on December 1, when they mounted a late rally to force overtime, but fell in the extra frame.
-- Track & Field to Take on Division I Foes at Maryland Invitational --
The men's and women's track & field teams are set to travel to Landover, MD to compete at the Maryland Invitational after turning in a number of record-breaking performances last weekend. The Blue Jays will take on a bevy of strong Division I teams including Navy, Maryland, Virginia and American.
The Hopkins women had a remarkable day at the NYU Gotham Cup on January 12, as Annie Monagle, Hannah Oneda and Emily Swenson each broke Conference records in the 1,000 meter run, 3,000 meter run and shot put, respectively. Additionally, Remington Ricciuti broke the Hopkins freshman record in the long jump, while Megan McDonald tied the freshman record in the 60 meter hurdles.
On the men's side, Andrew Carey set the Hopkins record in the 1,000 meter run, while Max Robinson broke the Hopkins 3,000 meter record. Freshman Joseph Paek was named conference field athlete of the week for his performance in the high jump.
