PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Brown men's swimming and diving team battled with a tough Yale squad on Saturday before ultimately falling 175-125 at the Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center.
"We gave Yale a good run on both sides today. The last three meets have really shown that our programs are continuing to evolve and improve. We have a great group of student-athletes that have worked very hard all year and love to compete. We are very excited to see what our teams can do at the Ivy League Championships," said head coach Peter Brown.
The meet started off in record fashion for the Bears as the quartet of Alex Pascal, Christopher Meyers, Tommy Glenn, and Jeffrey Strausser set the school record in the 200 Yard Medley Relay with a time of 1:29.61.
Freshman Nicholas Johnston clocked in with a mark of 50.33 in the 100 Yard Backstroke as he claimed victory in the event while Meyers (57.05) and Connor Lohman (57.23) placed first and second respectively in the 100 Yard Breaststroke.
Tommy Glenn continued his strong senior season for the Bears as he scored victories in the 200-Yard Butterfly (1:46.49) and the 100 Yard Freestyle (45.45). Strausser recorded Brown's final win of the afternoon in the 50 Yard Freestyle as he clocked in at 20.52.
Brown will host an invitational next weekend in preparation for the Ivy League Championships to be held at Harvard from Feb. 27-March 1.
