Defending Centennial Champ Gettysburg Bests Men's Swimming on Senior Day
SWARTHMORE, Pa. - A valiant Senior Day effort from the Swarthmore men's swim team proved futile as the undefeated Gettysburg Bullets dominated Ware Pool by 150-55 score on Saturday. The loss drops the Garnet men to 4-3 in dual meet competition with one matchup left.
Swarthmore's lone individual victory came from junior Josh Satre, as he won the 1000 freestyle (10:22.79); however, the Garnet benefitted from several other fast swims. Brevart missed first place in the 50 freestyle by a mere 7-100ths of a second (22.01), junior Daniel Duncan took a close second in the 200 IM (2:03.55) and 500 freestyle (5:00.02), sophomore John Flaherty was less than a second from first in the 200 butterfly (2:04.74), and sophomore Zach Gavin turned in a strong second-place showing in the 200 breaststroke (2:20.70).
The last dual meet of the season will take place next Saturday, as the Garnet travels to Dickinson. Action is set to begin at 2 pm.
