Men's soccer loses tight match
A late second-half goal by Michigan State's Jeffrey Krass proved decisive as the Badger men's soccer team fell 1-0 to the Spartans.
"The thing that's disappointing about today is that I think we should be capable of beating a team like Michigan State. It's disappointing that we didn't come out and didn't create as many quality chances as I know we're capable of," said Badgers head coach Jeff Rohrman.
The game was Wisconsin's last at home; Nov. 2, the Badgers will face Northwestern.
Swimming teams enjoy success
A record-setting performance by the men's swimming relay team and the strength of individual performances by the women's team gave the Badgers easy meet wins over their Iowa opponents.
Seniors Matt Marshall and Dale Rogers contributed a leg to each of the Natatorium-best relays, a 400-yard medley clocking in at 3:20.87 and 200-yard freestyle relay. The team's 1:21.76 finish beat the previous mark set by Purdue in 1998 (1:22.42). Marshall and Rogers were joined in the 400 relay by junior Adam Mania and Kevin Zakrzewski, and in the freestyle by Mania and junior Eric Wiesner. The Badgers defeated the Hawkeyes 172-116.
The Lady Badgers won all 16 events against Iowa for a 172-87 victory. Freshman Susan Johnson opened the meet by joining Amalia Sarnecki, Sarah Hernandez and Bethany Pendleton on the 400 medley relay team that finished first in a winning time of 3:48.66. She then took individual wins in the 100 backstroke, 200 butterfly and 200 backstroke.
