ROCKY MOUNT — The Barton College women’s swimming team captured a victory over Lenoi- Rhyne on Saturday, while the men’s team was dominated in a home meet hosted at the Harrison Family YMCA in Rocky Mount.

The women’s swimming team downed the Bears 146-115, while the men’s team was handed a loss in a 172-90 runaway decision.

On the women’s side, Barton was led by junior Nicola McDonald, who won the 100- and 200-yard freestyle events, and was part of the first-place 400-yard freestyle relay team — along with Alayna Moore, Kleanza Cathers and Adalya Nemitz — which had a winning time of 3:48.26.

After contributing to the winning foursome, Cathers finished first place in the 200-yard backstroke. Barton freshman Carrington Clark won the 100-yard butterfly, Kazia Patzer blazed to a first-place finish in the 200-yard butterfly and Kaylee Davis finished ahead of the rest in the 100-yard freestyle.

In a loss, a pair of sophomores stood out for the Bulldogs. A.J. Hoscila won the 50-yard freestyle in 22.06 seconds, while Jonathan York finished first in the 200-yard butterfly.

The Barton swimming teams will travel to Murfreesboro on Friday to compete against Chowan and Saint Andrews. The events will begin at 1 p.m. in the Bynum Brown Aquatic Center.
