GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's and women's swimming and diving teams wrapped up the two-day, three-session Phoenix 1-2-3 meet on Saturday evening, with the women's squad claiming the team title and the men's team placing second in the three-team field.

The Phoenix 1-2-3 featured schools from all three NCAA divisions, as Green Bay (Division I), St. Cloud State (Division II) and UW-Whitewater (Division III) all competed at the Peter F. Dorschel Natatorium. The Phoenix won 17 of 20 events on the women's side, finishing with a first-place score of 904, while the men's team had a winner in five events and finished just 24 points back of the Division II power Huskies.

Junior Parker Wolf (Kohler, Wis.) paced the Phoenix women with six victories over the two days, swimming to a pair of individual wins while also participating on four winning relay teams. Wolf won the 50 and 100-yard freestyle races in 24.25 and 53.27, and was a member of Green Bay's victorious 200 free (1:38.21), 400 medley (3:57.95), 200 medley (1:49.15) and 400 free (3:35.62) relays.

Senior Heather Bodin (Maple Grove, Minn.) won five total events, joining Wolf on the winning 400 free, 400 medley and 200 medley relays, while also earning individual wins in the 200 IM (2:08.65) and 100 butterfly (58.66). Junior Kendra Rottier (Green Bay, Wis.) was a four-time winner, taking the 500 free (5:07.74), 1650 free (17:32.13) and 200 fly (2:10.41), and also swimming on the first-place 800 free relay (7:53.62).

Junior Robert Miner (Madison, Wis.) won a pair of individual races on the men's side, cruising to victory in the 100 (51.90) and 200 (1:56.57) butterfly events.
