Women's Swimming and Diving Set to Begin 2008-2009 Campaign on Wednesday

Kallie Pottle Springfield, Mass. - October 20, 2008 - On Wednesday evening, the Springfield College women's swimming and diving team will kick off its 2008-2009 campaign as it welcomes Division I-foe Holy Cross to the Art Linkletter Natatorium at 6:00 pm.

Last season, for the eighth-straight year, the Pride claimed the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic onference Championship last season. With the return of two-time NEWMAC Swimmer of the Year, Moira Price, and a talented group of returners, the ninth title looks to be within reach for the Pride. Price, who finished third in the 100 and 200 breaststroke at the NCAA Championships last season, is arguably the best swimmer in program history.

Head Coach John Taffe, who enters his 20th year at Springfield College, will begin this season as a six-time NEWMAC Coach of the Year.

Senior Kallie Pottle and sophomore Aimee Doe look to join Price to power the Pride towards another successful season. On the diving boards, Head Coach Pete Avdolous will look to junior Michelle Reggio to lead the way after participating in the NCAA Championships last year.
