The men ended their regular season on a high note as they continued their winning streak against McDaniel College this past weekend at the Terror’s Senior Day Meet in a final score of 57-38. Starting the meet with a win in their 200-yard medley relay, freshman James Ray, senior Austin Auger, senior Ross Mills, and freshman Steven Bilinski came in first while the B relay of junior Robby Homer, senior Johnny Helenek, junior Spencer VanCise (making his college in butterfly), and sophomore Danny Seidleck also managed a second place.
The meet continued with sophomore Robby Mix, now a distance swimmer, just narrowly missing a first in the 1,000-yard freestyle, but managing a season best time of 10:50.18. Freshman Austin Yocum secured another first in the 200-yard freestyle coming in at 1:50.49. Homer and Ross took on the 50-yard freestyle, and then freshman Gregory Lee finished off the first third of the meet with a first in the 200-yard IM in a time of 2:04.36. He was followed by Auger, who came in third in a time of 2:09.91.
Lee started the second third with a win in the 100-yard butterfly, coming in at a 55.92. He was followed by Bilinski and VanCise in the 100-yard freestyle as they managed a second and third place with times of 51.16 and 55.72 respectively. Ray continued the winning streak with his 100-yard backstroke as he came in first with a 56.85. Homer followed in third at 1:02.33. The 500-yard freestyle came next as Yocum, in a time of 5:04.38, came in first and Mix came in third with a 5:22.86.
Finishing his final dual meet of his college career on a very high note at the start of the final third of the meet, Auger won the 100-yard breastroke in a time of 1:03.71. Helenek also finished on a high-note as he came in third with a time of 1:06.22. The 200-yard relay finished strong as Lee, Ray, Bilinski, and Yocum finished first in a time of 1:30.84.
As a final race, unscored, VanCise tested out his ability in the 100-yard fly. After coming in at a 58.51, looks like he has found a new event for the championship meet at Gettysburg in two weeks.
