said coach Laura Seibold-
Caudill. “They set goals for
themselves (at the beginning
of the year) and that’s what
this meet is for.”
   The Cardinals will swim in
the mornings for the prelimi-
naries and, unlike the other
11 schools competing, won’t
receive points as a team.
   Ball State (11-5, 4-4 MAC)
originally finished the dual
meet season with a 10-6
record overall and 3-5 record
against MAC competition.
However, after it was discov-
ered Akron had used an inel-
igible swimmer, freshman
Danielle Beland, for its first
three meets of the season —
including against Ball State —
the Cardinals were awarded a
160-140 win. Beland, who
Seibold-Caudill       said     is
Akron’s best swimmer, won
three events and helped the
400-yard medley relay team
defeat the Cardinals.
