Men Win All 16 Events En Route To Win Over Holy Cross



BOSTON, MA-Ryan Falk won three individual events, while Griffin Moodie, Mike Kelly, Greg Dierkson, and Victor Paguia each won two events to lead the Terrier men's swimming and diving team to a 203-89 win over visiting Holy Cross at Faneuil Pool on Saturday, Jan. 15.

It marked the first meet of the second semester for the Terriers, and they opened on a high note by winning all 16 events.

Falk, a junior from Sarasota, FL, bested the field in the 50 (:29.36), and 100 breaststroke (1:07.21) events as well as the 200 individual medley (2:10.24).

Moodie (Edina, MN), who added two winning relay efforts to his individual performances, won the 50 (:23.76) and 100 flies (:53:53) as well as swimming legs on the winning 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays.

The 200 medley started the meet off on a winning note when the foursome of James Lands (Montclair, NJ), Moodie, Kelly, and Mike McGrath (Pittsburgh, PA) were timed in 1:49.07. Moodie then joined with Kelly, McGrath, and Dave Brown (Fallbrook, CA) to win the 200 free in 1:30.62.

Kelly captured both sprint freestyle events-the 50 and 100. In the 50, he was clocked in :22:04, while he added a first-place finish in the 100 in :49.28.

While Kelly dominated the sprints, Dierkson was the meet's top distance swimmer as he won both the 500 and 1000 freestyle. In the former, he was timed in 5:15.84, while he had a 10:53.2 en route to winning the latter.

Paguia won both the one- and three-meter dives, so what else is new? The senior from Lake Forest, IL continues to dominate the event. Against the Crusaders, he amassed 337.7 points at one meter and 330.95 at three meters.

Individual event winners were Brown and Lands. Brown won the 200 free in 1:55.57, while Lands captured the 50 back in :29.36.
