WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue swimming and diving's season-opening Black and Gold intrasquad Friday afternoon at the Boilermaker Aquatics Center featured six two-time individual winners, and the Black teams from both the men and women capturing duals that were each decided by less than 10 points.

Emily Fogle (200 IM and 200 breast) and Lauren Roth (200 free and 200 fly) each won a pair of events to the way for the women's Black team in its 119-111 victory. Colleen Drew (500 free) and Kristen Gilson (200 back) were also individual winners. The trio of Roth, Drew and Jenna York finished 1-2-3 in the 200 free, earning the Black team 16 points in that event.

Ben Wachtel swept the 100 and 200 free and Jamie Bissett took both diving events to lead the men's Black team to a 124-117 victory. Albert Miller (200 breast) and Andrew Starr (1000 breast) also posted individual victories. Bissett and Alec Back finished one-two in both diving events, outscoring the Gold team 26-12 on the boards, to help the Black team overcome the disqualification of its top relay quartets in both relay events.

The men's 200 IM and women's 400 free relay featured two of the more competitive finishes of the day. In the 200 IM, Brian Kiel of the Gold team rallied over the final 50 yards to out touch classmate Jacob McGough of the Black team 1:54.03 to 1:54.07. The 400 free relay came down to Lauren Gustafson (Gold) and Roth (Black) on the final leg. Gustafson emerged victorious with cumulative times of 3:28.89 and 3:29.20.

Kiel also won the 200 back and Gustafson the 100 free. Other individual winners for the Gold Teams included Matt Friede (50 free), Eduard Galdeano (200 fly), Alec LaMothe (500 free), Courtney Tumbush (1000 free), Lauren Nichols (50 free) and Maddie Miskulin (1- and 3-meter diving).

Other notable 1-2 finishes for the Black teams included: Wachtel and Manuel Gutierrez in the 200 free, Gilson and Danielle Romain in the 200 back, Fogle and Ellesse Lunde in the 200 breast and Miller and G. Daniel Michael in the 200 breast.

Purdue welcomes the University of Indianapolis, IUPUI and Valparaiso to the Boilermaker Aquatic Center Saturday for the Indiana Intercollegiates. The meet is scheduled to get underway at noon.
