Bailey and Thurston Announced as 2011-12 Swim Captains

FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Sacred Heart University swimming coach Richard Ludemann has named juniors Meghan Bailey (Walpole, Mass.) and Allison Thurston (Berlin, Conn.) co-captains for the 2011-'12 season.

Both swimmers have been consistent scorers over their first three years with the Pioneers and were selected for their leadership, focus, and dedication to the team.  Each has proven to be a valuable teammate and fierce competitor in the pool.

In this year's Northeast Conference Swimming & Diving Championship, Bailey and Thurston both scored in the 200-yard butterfly with times of 2:10.59 and 2:13.56, respectively.  Both have excelled in the individual medley throughout their careers as both scored in the 400 IM at the NEC Championship.
