The Union College men’s and women’s swimming teams wrapped up the 2015 Appalachian Swimming Conference Championships. The Union men and women finished third overall, as action wrapped up at the Christiansburg Aquatic Center on Saturday evening.

The Union men’s team, who garnered 425 points, improved on a fifth place finish in last season’s ASC Championships. Meanwhile, the Union women collected 364 points to place in the top five as a squad at the championships for the sixth straight season.

“I am very excited for our men and women,” said head coach Rafael Forti. “They fought and competed hard all meet long, despite the fact we were not rested for this meet.”
