PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Penn men's swimming team ended the Ivy League Championships in sixth place on Saturday, ending the night with three more new school records and upping the team's total to nine for the Championships. Freshman Chris Swanson won the title in the 1650 Freestyle, becoming the first Quaker since Brendan McHugh in 2011 to win an individual event.

In the first race of the night, Swanson shaved nearly 14 seconds off the previous Penn record in the 1650, submitting a time of 15:02.11 to win the race by nearly seven seconds against Yale's Rob Harder, avenging close finishes against Harder in the 500 and 1000 Freestyles. Stephen Carroll came in eighth in the race with a time of 15:22.80.

Later on, Alex Porter broke Penn's school mark in the 100 Freestyle with a time of 44.79 to finish 14th. It was a record that didn't last long, however, as Dillon McHugh later swam a time of 44.70 as the opening leg of the 400 Freestyle Relay.

With McHugh getting the 400 Free Relay team off to that blazing start, John Germanis, Porter and Rhoads Worster combined to close out the race in 2:58.48, Penn's final new school record of the Championships.

Other top finishers on the night for the Quakers were McHugh in the 200 Backstroke (1:48.17, 14th overall), Kyle Yu in the 200 Breaststroke (1:59.14, fifth overall) and Worster (1:49.43, 12th overall) in the 200 Butterfly.
