Cambridge, Mass. - The Quakers got outstanding performances from a pair of juniors but it wasn't enough to take down Harvard as Penn lost to the Crimson 197-103 on Sunday afternoon.
Cragg's most impressive performance of the day was in the 3-meter diving event, where he won with a career-best 340.20. The score is also just shy of his father's school record of 342.25 which has stood since 1974. Rob Cragg also held the 1-meter diving record until the younger Cragg broke it last season. The junior also won the 1-meter event with 309.00 points.
McHugh was also dominant once again, winning the 100-yard breaststroke, 200-yard breaststroke and 200-yard I.M. He finished the 100 in 55.96 and the 200 in 2:04.19, before ending his swimming with a 1:53.14 in the I.M.
The breaststroker was also a member of Penn's only other victory on the day, helping the Red and Blue to a win in the 200-yard medley Relay. The foursome of junior Matt Krey, McHugh, freshman Rhoads Worster and junior Peter Amos finished in 1:33.73, just seven hundredths of a second ahead of Harvard.
Individually, Worster had a pair of third-place finishes in the 100-yard backstroke (52.22) and 100-yard butterfly (51.28). Sophomore Stephen Carroll also swam well, touching second in the 500-yard free with a time of 4:37.87. Carroll also came in third in the 200-yard butterfly (1:55.78)
Penn returns to the pool on Friday at 5 p.m. when the team hosts West Chester in its final home meet of the year.
