St. Michael's College first-year Catherine Tierney of Cape Elizabeth won the 500 and 1,000 freestyle races in a recent dual meet victory at Norwich. She was also part of the winning 400-yard freestyle relay.

In the men's meet, St. Michael's senior Andrew Marshall of Kittery (St. Thomas Aquinas of Dover, N.H.) won the 500 and 1,000 freestyles, and combined with sophomore Nathan Paluso of Windham and two others to win the 400 free relay. Paluso won the 50 back by 0.01 seconds. Earlier in the month, Marshall was named to the NE-10 weekly honor roll after winning a 1,650-yard freestyle by nearly a minute and coming within 12.01 seconds of the school mark.

Keegan Goan of Westbrook is 12-0 this season in the 50- and 100-yard butterfly events for Elms College after winning both events Saturday against Regis College. Goan won the 100 butterfly in 55.48 seconds and the 50 fly in 24.62, placed second in the 200 IM (2:13.39), and helped anchor the winning 200 freestyle relay as Elms fell nine points short of a victory.

  Wheaton College freshman Daniel Spencer of North Yarmouth (Greely) was part of the winning 400-yard freestyle relay in a double dual meet with Worcester Polytechnic Institute and UMass-Dartmouth.
