NAPLES, Fla. – Sophomore Charlie Adl (New Canaan, Conn.) played a part in three event victories as the Connecticut College men's swimming team registered a lopsided 155-82 dual meet win over Grinnell in Florida on Saturday afternoon.
The Camels upped their record to 2-0 in dual meets this winter by touching the wall first in every swimming event contested between the schools. Adl won the 100-yard freestyle in 47.51 seconds and the 200 free in 1:44.92 to lead the way. He also ended the meet by teaming up with senior Jaleel Walter (Brooklyn, N.Y.) as well as freshmen Casey Keenan (Westford, Vt.) and Jack Kittay (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) to post a first-place time of 1:42.77 in the 200 free relay.
Another notable individual effort was made by Jared Nussbaum, as the sophomore pulled off the challenging feat of capturing both distance events. He notched a mark of 10:59.22 in the 1,000 and 4:52.28 in the 500 and was among five underclassmen to punch in a first-place time. Classmate Stefan Garbee (Weston, Conn.) as well as freshmen Colin Merrill (Glastonbury, Conn.) and Dash Hunter (Westport, Conn.) were victorious in the 100 fly, 400 IM and 100 breast, respectively.
Connecticut College (2-0) will next host nationally-ranked Williams on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 1 p.m.
