Men’s Swimming Overwhelms Trinity, 193-84, for Third Dual Meet Victory of the Season

HARTFORD, Conn. – Freshman Casey Keenan (Westford, Vt.) factored into four first-place finishes in leading the Connecticut College men's swimming team to a convincing 193-84 dual meet win over Trinity on Monday afternoon.

Keenan started the meet by swimming the leadoff backstroke leg for the 200-yard medley relay team which punched in a time of 1:37.55 and also included freshman Dash Hunter (Westport, Conn.) as well as seniors Marc Klepacki (Hadley, Mass.) and Jaleel Watler (Brooklyn, N.Y.). He then swept the backstroke events, taking first in the 100 in 53.40 seconds and the 200 in 1:58.12, and closed out the day racing a leg for the 400 free relay that notched a mark of 3:15.04. Klepacki, Watler and sophomore Charlie Adl (New Canaan, Conn.) rounded out the foursome.

Other notable individual performances were made by freshman Colin Merrill (Glastonbury, Conn.) and Adl. In addition to swimming on the final relay, Adl showed his versatility by capturing the 1,000 free in 10:07.84 and the 100 free in 47.80. Merrill added victories in the 500 free in 4:47.42 and the 200 IM in 1:58.68.

Connecticut College (3-2) will host Bridgeport in its final home meet of the season on Saturday at 1 p.m.
