Lacourt Earns Two Events Wins as Knights Fall to Canisius

BUFFALO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo senior Natalie LaCourt earned a victory in the 100 backstroke and swam a leg of the winning 200 medley relay, but the Knights fell to NCAA Division I affiliate Canisius, 127-116, on Saturday at Erie Community College.

First-year Deidra Osula earned a win in the 50 freestyle, clocking a 25.07 in her first collegiate meet. Osula and LaCourt were joined by first-years Olivia Hilt and Noelle Staso to take the event with a time of 1:50.27. Staso grabbed a win in the 100 breaststroke, touching the wall in 1:08.39. Sophomore Samantha Reichman took first in the one-meter dive with a score of 248.95.

Geneseo will return to the pool on Saturday, Nov. 4 when they travel to Grove City College to face both Grove City and Fredonia.
