HUNTINGDON, Pa. — Georgi Shalamanov (Velingrad, Bulgaria/St. St. Kiril & Metodi) placed first a pair of individual events and was on Goucher's victorious 200-meter medley relay team this afternoon, but the Gophers still were handed a 127-73 setback by Scranton in Landmark Conference action.

Shalamanov's first-place performances were in the 50-meter freestyle, which he completed in :24.94, and the 100-meter butterfly (1:01.63).

Charlie Rooney (Sea Bright, N.J./Christian Brothers Academy) of the Gophers turned in a time of :56.69 in the 100 free, good for first place, and Kyle Williams (Andover, N.J./Newton) touched first in the 100 backstroke (1:03.49).

The winning time in the 200 medley relay was 1:54.94 and the four swimmers who represented Goucher (1-4, 0-3 Landmark) in that event were Williams, Shalamanov, Rooney and Kevin Wons (Bedford, N.H./Souhegan).
