ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. — After beating two of the three opponents it faced in a season-opening quadrangular one week ago, Goucher came up empty in a triangular this afternoon.

The Gophers bowed to Marymount, 123-82, and St. Mary's (Md.), 146-59.

Colin Richter (Cleburne, Texas/Cleburne) delivered the lone first-place performance for the Gophers (2-3) by completing the 200-yard backstroke in 2:03.50. He was also the runner-up in the 200 freestyle (1:51.46)

Ben Shriner (Arlington, Mass./Arlington) was clocked at 10:59.94 in the 1000 free, good for second place.

St. Mary's generated the first-place finisher in seven of the meet's nine individual events. In addition to their win over head coach Thomas Till's squad, the Seahawks (2-0) were 135-68 winners over the Saints (1-1).
