Stags Win Three More Events to Maintain Lead at SCIAC Swim and Dive Championships

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Frank Applebaum (100 fly) and Evan Deedy (100 breast) won individual titles and combined with Anderson Breazeale and Dylan Krueger for a 400-yard medley relay win as the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's swimming and diving team maintained a lead of 39.5 points after three days of the SCIAC Swim and Dive Championships.

Applebaum added his 100 fly title to his 200 IM championship from yesterday, and he still has his best event tomorrow (the 200 fly, in which he has won two national titles in Division III record times). He finished the 100 fly in 47.55 seconds, setting a new meet record and winning by over one full second over second-place Cole Kershner of Chapman. 

Deedy, meanwhile, defended his title in the 100 breast in a close race, edging out Ted Hwang of Pomona-Pitzer 55.11 to 55.45 to add 20 points to the CMS total. The Stags capped off the day with a 3:16.28 in the 400-yard medley relay, a comfortable margin of over two seconds over Pomona-Pitzer (3:18.31).

Jeremy Tan finished second and Krueger third in the 100 back to both earn All-SCIAC honors. Breazeale came in second in the 200 free after winning the 500 free yesterday in SCIAC record time, and Henrik Barck also earned All-SCIAC honors in the 400 IM, breaking four minutes with a 3:58.45. 

With one day to go, CMS now has 626.5 points, with Pomona-Pitzer in second with 587 and Chapman a distant third with 336. 

The final day of the SCIAC Championships will get underway with prelims tomorrow at 9 a.m., as the Stags will have the defending champions in the 1650 (Lucas Lang), 200 fly (Applebaum) and 200 back (Breazeale) as they try to hold on to their lead and defend their SCIAC title.
