Men's Swimming Wins Performance Invitational

GAMBIER, Ohio – The University of Pennsylvania men’s swimming and diving team won seven more events on Saturday night, putting an exclamation point on their Total Performance Invitational championship. The Quakers tallied 2,945 points over the three days, and finished as the only team that racked up more than 2,000 points.

The Quakers were once again strong in the relay department, snagging the title in the 400 free. The team of Kevin Su, Eric Schultz, Mark Andrew, and Thomas Dillinger earned the crown with a time of 1:28.16.

Schultz and Andrew were also victorious in the solo variety, with Schultz posting a win in the 100 free and Andrew taking the crown in the 200 IM.

Schultz touched the wall in 42.83, while Andrew continued his impressive freshman season with a top mark of 1:46.72. Schultz’s swim was fast enough to break his own school record in the event, which he clocked last season.

Chris Swanson, who broke his own school record in 1650 on Thursday, registered his second title of the weekend on Saturday. The senior captain swam to the gold in the 500 free with a time of 4:18.64.

Grant Proctor also took home his second triumph of the weekend, and broke his own school record in the 200 back in the process. Proctor touched the wall in 1:44.84, finishing just ahead of Dillinger, who came in second place.

Jimmy Jameson was the lone Quaker who notched his first win of the weekend on Saturday, swimming the top time in the 100 fly. The junior darted to mark of 48.14.

Wes Thomas was a victor in the 200 breast, pacing the field with a time of 1:56.99.

The Quakers will be back in action in 2016, beginning the New Year with a tri-meet against Dartmouth and Yale on January 9.
