A couple of baseball notes:
Wednesday, March 7, in Exactly How Deep Are The Feds Looking Into This? Stadium the Marlins will play FIU in a split squad exhibition game at 1:05 p.m.
The Diamond Dinner, to baseball and softball programs' fundraising what Harmon Killebrew was to the Minnesota Twins, will be Feb. 11 at the Graham Center Ballroom. The event will include food (dinner...good), alcohol (cocktail reception...better), a live auction, a silent auction and guest speaker Lou Pinella, an insanely competitive player and manager.
SWIMMING & DIVING
In their final home meet of the season, FIU's women of the pool blew Central Connecticut State out of the water with a 174-120.
Sophmoore Sonia Perez Arau won the 100-yard freestyle, 200 backsrtroke and the 400 individual medley. On Senior Day, seniors Kariann Stevens and Vicnan Torres won the 400 free relay with freshmen Klara Andersson and Nadia Farrugia. Stevens also won the 100 butterfly. The freshmen took individual firsts in the 100 free (Andersson) and 200 free (Farrugia). Freshman Jeanmarie Madison won the 200 breaststroke). Sophomore Johanna Gustafsdottir showed nice versatility by winning the 100 back and the 500 free.
Diver Sabrina Beaupre won the 1-meter and 3-meter events. But, if you're reading this far into the pool part of the post, you probably assumed that.
