GSU S&D wins on Senior Day
    The Georgia Southern Swimming and Diving team sent their seniors out on a high note as they beat conference foe UNC Asheville 146-100 on Saturday, Jan. 19 in the Recreation Activity Center.
    The Eagles improve to 6-2 on the year and the Bulldogs fall to 2-5.
    Emily Fell, Pirie Humphries, Alden Lynch and Lindsay Mullican all competed in their last home meet at the RAC.
    “We always want to make sure that we win on the last day our seniors will ever have a meet here, said GSU coach Nathan Kellogg. “We wanted to make sure that we not only honor our seniors with a win but that we also finish all our home meets with a win.”
    The Eagles won every event but the 100 and 200 Breast and several Eagles set personal bests as well as season bests in events they do not usually compete in.
    “We don’t know how good someone can be at some thing before they do it. It opens up our eyes to possibilities of what they can do at the conference meet. It is also to give them a mental break from doing the same day in and day out,” Kellogg said.
    Humphries waved the RAC goodbye in style, finishing second in the 200 Fly (2:11.60).
