THURSDAY'S RECAP

MINNEAPOLIS – On day two of the MIAC Championships, Jack Heinzel (So./Pennington, N.J./Hopewell Valley Central) earned his first career all-conference award with a second-place swim in the 50-yard freestyle. He was one of seven members of the Carleton College men’s swimming and diving team to compete in the finals on day two. The Knights climbed into fifth place in the team standings.

Heinzel earned All-MIAC recognition for the first time with his second-place performance in the 50-yard freestyle. He smashed his career best with a 20.89 during the prelims then improved upon that with a 20.78 in the finals to move into fourth in team history. Nick Reeves (Jr./Kirkland, Wash./Lake Washington) placed eighth in the same event, with his season-best time of 21.54.

Ben Greenvall (Sr./Branford, Conn./Branford) and Jack Dalluge (Jr./Waverly, Minn./Watertown-Mayer) added to the Carleton point total by placing 15th and 16th, respectively, in the 500-yard freestyle. They posted times of 4:57.58 and 4:55.90.

Andrew Chang (So./Vancouver, Wash./Union) and Will Altaweel (So./Madison, Wis./Madison West) qualified for the ‘B’ final of the 200-yard IM after breaking career bests in the prelims with times of 2:00.04 and 2:00.43. The duo placed 14th and 15th in the finals after touching the wall at 2:00.46 and 2:00.89, respectively.

The evening concluded with the 400-yard medley relay, and Carleton’s entry placed fourth. Ari Conati (Jr./Minneapolis, Minn./Minnetonka), Heinzel, Chang, and Reeves combined on a time of 3:29.84, smashing the Knights’ previous season best by more than 11 seconds.

After sitting sixth following Thursday’s action, the Knights moved up into third place with 122 points. Gustavus leads the team competition with 360 points, while St. Thomas has collected 280 points. St. Olaf (145) and Saint John’s (143) round out the rest of the top five.
