SHENANDOAH, Tex. (blugolds.com) - Day two of the NCAA Division III Men's Swimming & Diving Championships took place on Thursday with the Blugolds swimmers being represented in two relays as well as Dylan Glumac-Berberich (Fr.-Fridley, MN) competing in the one meter diving competition.
The team of Ben Fisher (Sr.-Roselle, IL/Lake Park), Jack Kelly (Jr.-Medina, MN/Wayzata), Logan Coert (Jr.-Cedarburg, WI), and Collin Miller (Fr.-Rochester, MN/Schaeffer Academy) reached the consolation finals for the 200-yard freestyle relay. Their qualifying time of 1:22.38 in the preliminaries clinched them a spot in the night's final. There, they went a time of 1:23.70, good for a 16th place finish.
Unfortunately, that same team was disqualified in the 400-yard medley relay during the prelims and were unable to qualify for the finals in that race.
In the diving portion of the competition, Glumac-Berberich scored a 385.80 in the one meter diving preliminaries. This score finished 23rd amongst the field and ultimately failed to reach the final round.
The men scored two team points on the day, moving their total to nine through two days of competition. This dropped them to 31st place overall, and they will be back in action tomorrow for day three.
Follow the action all season long on Blugold Game Day.
