STEVENS POINT, Wis. ( - The UW-Eau Claire men's swimming and diving team didn't have much luck at today's triangular with UW-Stevens Point and the St. Cloud State University (Minn.) as the Blugolds dropped both team competitions.

The Blugolds lost the St. Cloud meet 218-75 and fell to Stevens Point 213-70.

Second place finishes by Jonathan Poppele (Jr.-Maple Grove, Minn./Wayzata) and Nick Badilla (So.-Appleton, Wis./North) were the best Blugold placings of the competition. Poppele’s time of 2:03.46 in the 200-yard backstroke was just off of the winning run of 2:03.22.

Badilla scored his runner-up finish in the one-meter dive with a score of 264.40. Badilla also earned a third place finish in the three-meter diving competition with a final number of 277.30.

The only other top-three finishes of the day were by Ben Epperly (Fr.-Schaumburg, Ill.) in the 1,000-yard freestyle and Corey Groshens (So.-St. Louis Park, Minn./Hopkins) in the 200-yard breaststroke competition.

The Blugolds’ next opportunity for redemption will be in a home meet against UW-Oshkosh at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13.
