February 16, 1999

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Virginia Tech men's and women's swimming and diving teams will be competing in the Bell Atlantic Atlantic 10 Championships February 18-20 in Buffalo, N.Y.

The women's team was the preseason favorite, as decided by the league coaches. The women finished second in the championship last season, just five points behind St. Bonaventure.

At last year's championship, the Hokies established 10 school records, tied two school records, crowned 12 Atlantic 10 champions and broke four A-10 Championship records in three days of competition.

On the women's side, those expected to vie for league titles include freshmen Erin Milfeit (Verona, Pa.) and Kate Keeton(Mt. Airy, Md.), sophomores Lindsey Tew (Richmond, Va.) and Jordan Huegerich (Chapel Hill, N.C.) and senior Jackie Davoud (Richmond, Va.).

Milfeit currently has the best times in the 200-yard backstroke and 500-yard freestyle in the conference. Her times in the 200-yard freestyle and 1,000-yard freestyle are second-best in the league.

Keeton has the third best time in the 200-yard breaststroke and fourth best time in the 200-yard individual medley. Tew leads the way in the 200-yard butterfly and is fifth in the 200-yard freestyle.

Huegerich currently is listed second in the conference in the 400-yard individual medley, fourth in the 200-yard butterfly and fifth in the 200-yard individual medley. Davoud has the league's best scores in both the one-meter and three-meter dives.

On the men's side, sophomore Ray Hrabe (Manassas, Va.) has the second fastest time in the conference in the 100-yard backstroke and the 200-yard individual medley.

Sophomore Gregg Doul- (Charlotte, N.C.) has the best time in the A-10 in the 1,650-yard freestyle and the third best time in the 500-yard freestyle.

The women enter the conference championships with a record of 5-5, while the men stand at 3-8.
