Written By Editor on 10/30/17 | 10/30/17

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The SUNY Cobleskill women’s swimming & diving team will head into the 2017-18 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) season ranked fourth in the league’s preseason coaches’ poll. The Fighting Tigers are coming off a third place finish at the conference’s 2016-17 championship meet after posting a 3-6-1 overall record versus head-to-head completion during the regular season.

According to new head coach Jamie Hotaling the Fighting Tigers will be something of a work in progress this year.

“This season we are clearly going to be in a rebuilding mode because of our losses from last year’s roster. But if our newcomers develop like we believe they can along with our returners; we can become a competitive team by the end of the season.”
                                                                                                                                   
Leading the way for the Orange & Black this season will be junior Emily Sugrue, Long Island City, N.Y., The Renaissance Charter School, who captured conference titles last season in the 100-yard butterfly and the 100-yard freestyle along with sophomores Ashley Maye, Westport, N.Y., Moriah Central High School, and Michelle Moffett, Staten Island, N.Y. , Saint John Villa Academy, who earned All-NEAC Team honors in multiple relay events.

Among the newcomers freshman Lauren Howard, Fishkill, N.Y., John Jay-Hopewell Junction, has shown promise as both a diver and as a swimmer who can perform multiple events at multiple distances.  

The Fighting Tigers will begin their season on Saturday, October 28th, when they host SUNY Delhi in dual meet action at the Bouck Hall Natatorium beginning at 1:00 p.m.
