Mars Hill, NC Ė The Pfeiffer University Falcons lost to the Mars Hill College Lions in non-conference men's and women's swimming action on Friday evening.

The men lost 147-111, while the women lost by a score of 189-58.
Brittany Byrum (Matthews, NC) was the top finisher for the womenís team taking home two first place wins. She pushed through the last 10 yards and swam a 1:03.90 in the 100 yard butterfly. Byrum also out touched her competitors to win the 200 yard backstroke with a 2:17.99.
