Garnet Sports Update Jan. 9, 2017

☀️ Puerto Rico in January ☀️

Swarthmore men's and women's swimming teams made their annual escape from the cold northeast to train in Puerto Rico. While the teams are having some fun in the sun, they have been working hard in dry land and water training sessions throughout the trip in order to be ready for the final stretch of the season.

After a long winter break, the Garnet returned to the court for four games last week. Swarthmore fell in tough contests away from home against St. John Fisher, Juniata and Gettysburg, but earned a Centennial Conference victory over Bryn Mawr College on Thursday. Swarthmore toppled the Owls 66-42 behind freshman Lindsay O'Sullivan's game-high 24 points. O'Sullivan also grabbed 12 rebounds to complete the double-double. Twelve Garnet players scored in the win.

No. 18 Men's Basketball went 4-1 since the last issue of the Garnet Sports Update, including wins over a 10-1 Hood College team and a 9-2 Catholic University squad.

Against Hood on Dec. 30, Swarthmore rallied late and pulled away in overtime after hitting 6-of-7 3-pointers in the final nine minutes of the game, winning 72-63.

On Tuesday, Swarthmore dominated the Catholic Cardinals 88-51 with Cam Wiley scoring a team-high 17 points. Zack Yonda drilled a first-half buzzer-beater from beyond half court in the rout.

Against conference opponent Gettysburg on Saturday, Swarthmore rolled to a 75-68 win. Jim Lammers (left) dropped a career-high 23 points off the bench in an impressive 8-for-9 shooting game.
