CMS Men's Swim and Dive Wins Medley Relay, In Tight Battle with Sagehens After First Day of SCIAC

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The 200-yard medley relay team of Anderson Breazeale, Evan Deedy, Weston Crewe and Nick Tekieli won a tight race by a half-second to highlight the first day of the SCIAC Swim and Dive Championships for the CMS men's swimming and diving team.

The Stags stand just two points out of first place after the opening day (98-96) as they try to win their third straight SCIAC title. CMS also had all three of its divers in the 1-meter qualify for tomorrow's finals, with Jack Griffith holding the lead in points after prelims. 

Tekieli closed out the medley relay with a 19.91 split in his 50-yard freestyle leg, turning a very close race with Pomona-Pitzer (separated by .07 at the 150-yard mark) into a half-second victory as CMS finished in 1:29.82, ahead of the 1:30.32 for the Sagehens.

CMS was third in the 800-yard freestyle relay, though, as Caltech was able to slip into the No. 2 spot behind Pomona-Pitzer, leaving the Stags in a very close second behind the Sagehens. The Stags did have all three of its divers (Griffith, Cyrus Gaylord and Ethan Sattley) move on to the 1-meter finals tomorrow. 

Day two of the SCIAC Swimming and Diving Championships will get underway in the morning with swimming prelims at 9 a.m.
