Cambridge, Mass. - The Quakers got a second-place finish from junior Brendan McHugh in the 200 yard Individual Medley to put themselves in fifth after the first day of the Ivy Championships held at Harvard. Princeton is in first place in the team standings after day one. The hosts are following closely in second.

McHugh was seeded second in the event after the prelims and maintained that spot in the final, touching behind Jon Christensen with his time of 1:47.22. The time was just .18 seconds off his school record.

In addition to his individual performance, McHugh also swam the second leg for the 400-yard medley relay team that finished in third place and set a new school record in the process. The foursome of Nick Johnson, McHugh, freshman Rhoads Worster and junior Peter Amos shattered the school record by nearly three seconds with their time of 3:15.23. McHugh's 52.56 split in the breaststroke was also the fastest in Ivy League history.

Worster and Amos also had top-ten finishes in their respective events. Worster finished 10th in the 200-yard I.M. with a time of 1:50.61 while Amos swam a 20.85 in the 50-yard free.

The Quakers return to the pool on Friday morning for more preliminaries. You can follow all the action on the Ivy Championships Central page.
