GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Ten Phoenix seniors were honored on Saturday morning as the Green Bay men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams welcomed Wisconsin to the Peter F. Dorschel Natatorium for their annual Senior Day meet.

The Phoenix turned in several strong performances against the tough Big Ten opponents, but Badgers prevailed on both sides, winning the women’s competition 140-94 and the men’s competition 140-98.

Two Green Bay seniors picked up individual wins on the women’s side, as sprinter Parker Wolf (Kohler, Wis.) and diver Carrie Dinelli (Northbrook, Ill.) both closed their home careers in victorious fashion. Wolf raced to a win in the 50-yard freestyle, touching in first at 24.18, while Dinelli continued her solid stretch with a win on the 3-meter board (274.42).

Sophomore Willem Poelmans (Hasselt, Belgium) was the star on the men’s side for Green Bay, racing to an individual victory in pool-record fashion. Poelmans out-touched Wisconsin’s Ryan O’Donnell (1:52.77) for the win in the 200 IM, setting a new Dorschel Natatorium record with a time of 1:52.32.

The Phoenix women concluded their outstanding regular season with a 9-2 dual meet record – 18-2 against all opponents – while the men’s squad moved to 5-4 in head-to-head competition.

Green Bay next turns its full attention to the 2014 Horizon League Championship meet, slated for Feb. 26-March 1 in Cleveland, Ohio.

SENIOR DAY: Green Bay recognized five men and five women in a pre-meet Senior Day ceremony on Saturday morning. The 10-member senior class consists of: Connor Andrew (Centennial, Colo.), Cole Hackney (Highlands Ranch, Colo.), Brian Heiser (McFarland, Wis.), Taylor Ladd (Sussex, Wis.), Robert Miner (Madison, Wis.), Erin Cox (Berlin, Wis.), Carrie Dinelli (Northbrook, Ill.), Kelsey Johnson (Brookfield, Wis.), Kendra Rottier (Green Bay, Wis.) and Parker Wolf (Kohler, Wis.).
