IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa men’s swimming and diving team won all four events to take a 60-12 lead over Michigan State on Thursday night at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center Natatorium.
“Tonight was great, we had a chance to see everyone swim,” said UI head coach Marc Long. “It’s fun and a precursor for tomorrow, so we took care of ourselves tonight and got ready for a great day of racing tomorrow.”
Allen also was victorious for Iowa in the 100 IM, posting a time of 51.55 seconds. The Hawkeyes had four of the top five times with senior Matthew Boyd finishing second in 52.53, senior Roman Trussov placing third (52.56), and senior Tyler Nichols fifth (52.64).
Iowa also got a victory in the diving well when freshman Will Brenner dove to a first-place finish on the 1-meter springboard with a NCAA Zone qualifying score of 306.15. It was the first collegiate meet of Brenner’s career.
The Hawkeyes took the top four places in the diving event. Junior Brandis Heffner was the runner-up with a NCAA Zone Diving standard of 301.73, senior Addison Boschult was third (293.48) , and junior Andrew Hull was fourth with a 281.03.
“I’m looking forward to seeing them compete tomorrow,” said Long. “We have been training a long time, and for some people they haven’t raced short course since last year, so they’re hungry to race.”
The dual will continue Friday beginning at 4 p.m. (CT).
