Men's Swimming & Diving Make History on Final Day of the 2018 NEISDA Championship

KINGSTON, R.I. - The Husson University men's swimming & diving finish in 11th place at the 2018 New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association (NEISDA) Championship with 72 points.

Roger Williams University took home their second striaght NEISDA crown with 965.50 points while UMass.-Dartmouth (610), Bridgewater State University (607), Norwich Unviersity (537.50) and Keene State College (406.5) round out the top five.

THE RUNDOWN:

  • Ben Volpone finished 18th in the 50 Back (29.86).
  • Thomas Cote was 20th in the 50 Back (30.65) and posted the 16th fastest preliminary time in the 200 Fly (2:34.87), making him the first freshman swimmer in program history to qualify for two evening finals at a NEISDA Championship Meet. His time of 2:31.92 in the evening finals was good for 16th place, an effort worth one point.
  • The group of Volpone, Adam Colter, Caelan Lecrone, and Alex Miles combined to finish in 9th place in their preliminary swim of the 400-Free Relay with a time of 3:45.77, however a school scratched from finals allowing Husson's 400 Free Relay of Volpone, Colter Lercone and Miles compete in the evening finals. They posted a time of 3:46.38 good enough for an eighth place, an effort worth 22 points. This marks the first time in program history that the Husson Men have recorded two top-8 finishes in the relay events at a NEISDA Championship Meet.

This will conclude the 2017-18 campaign for the Husson University men's swimming & diving team.
