ECU freshman Jacek Arentewicz and sophomore Gustavo Santos qualified for the NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championship, marking the first time since 1979 the Pirates have had multiple swimmers qualify for the event in the same year.

The championships will be held March 21-24 in Minneapolis, Minn.

A total of 270 participants (235 swimmers and 35 divers) will compete in the championships. Swimmers qualified by meeting the established minimum time for their events. Divers are determined by performances achieved at the Zone Diving meets this week.

Arentewicz qualified for the 200 breaststroke after swimming an ECU varsity record-time 1:54.49 at a meet at Liberty University. He won gold in the 100 and 200 breaststroke at the American Athletic Conference Championships and will also have the opportunity to compete in the 100 breaststroke. Santos qualified for the championships in the 100 butterfly after posting an ECU-record time of 45.89 at the Liberty meet, and he also claimed the gold at AAC meet and can also compete in the 200 butterfly.

ECU tennis

The Pirates nailed down another win on their trip to Orlando with a 5-2 victory against Xavier on Wednesday. After losing the doubles point, ECU (13-3) won five singles matches in straight sets.

Vlad Anghel, Freddie McGeehan, Ronny Georgi, Kasey Countee and Javier Renones all won singles matches for ECU, which returns to action today with a home doubleheader against Grand Valley State and Coe College in Orlando.

PCC baseball

The Bulldogs dropped a midweek game at Louisburg, 13-4, after the hosts broke open a tight 5-4 game with a seven-run explosion in the seventh inning.

PCC was limited to six hits in the game, but two of them came off the bat of Drew Piscorik, who hit a home run and drove in three, and two more came from Trevor Losito.

Garrett Tyndall added a double for the Bulldogs, who hit the road again this weekend to take on Southeastern C.C. in Whiteville for a three-game set beginning with a Saturday doubleheader.
