Sagehens Stay Perfect In SCIAC With Win Over Chapman

Claremont, Calif. - The Pomona-Pitzer Men's Swimming and Diving team won 12 of the 14 swimming events as it captured a 226-61 SCIAC win over Chapman on Saturday morning at Haldeman Pool. 

With the win, the Sagehens are now 4-0 in the SCIAC on the season, with wins over Whittier, La Verne, Caltech and Chapman, and 4-2 overall. 

Freshman Mark Hallman (pictured) earned comfortable freestyle wins in both the 50 (by half a second in 21.93) and the 500 (by almost 11 seconds in 4:49.93). Chapman took the 200 free as Jonathan Lee edged Pomona-Pitzer freshman Jason Xu 1:46.60 to 1:47.49, but the other freestyle events saw junior Andy Wright win the 1000 and sophomore Daniel To take the 100.

To also won the 100 back, while freshman Mark Rusnak won the 200 back. The breaststroke events were swept by sophomore Kyle Dalrymple, while the butterfly saw junior Will Thorson win the 100, and Chapman's A.J. Silva earn first place in the 200.  Freshman Spencer Satz earned a comfortable win (almost seven seconds) in the 400 yard individual medley in 4:23.53.

The Sagehens also dominated the relays, finishing 1-2-3 in both the 200 medley and the 400 freestyle. The medley winning team was Daniel To (backstroke), Dalrymple (breaststroke), freshman Samuel To (butterfly) and senior Hugh Berryman (freestyle).   Daniel To, Berryman, sophomore Danny Villars and Hallman capped off the meet with a 3:11.16 in the 400 freestyle relay.
