NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Carleton College men’s swimming and diving team closed the competition portion of the fall season with a 111-103 dual meet victory over Hamline University. Sam Darwish (So./Akron, Ohio./University School) earned the squad’s Can of Corn Award for his victorious performance in the 1000-yard freestyle, while Andrew Chang (Fy./Vancouver, Wash./Union) played a part in three wins, including a pair of individual efforts. Overall, the Knights won seven events.

“Fun meet for both squads and a great way for the teams to close our fall term of training and competition,” said Carleton head coach Andy Clark. “Hamline has a program that is on the rise, and we knew that we would have some good opportunities to race. We talked about ending the fall term on a strong note, and we were looking for season best times and competitive results from all members. We had plenty of great moments, and the teams did an outstanding job of generating and sustaining a lot of good enthusiasm and support for each other throughout the meet.”

The meet began with 200-yard medley relay as Chang, Ryan Wetzel (So./Salem, Ore./West Salem), Stevie Fitch (Fy./Redmond, Wash./Nikola Tesla Stem School), and Nick Reeves (So./Kirkland, Wash./Lake Washington) joined together and posted a winning time of 1:40.44.

Darwish was next into the water and won the 1000-meter freestyle by more than 18 seconds. He reached the wall in 10:42.26.

Reeves then contributed a convincing victory in the 50-yard freestyle, besting Hamline’s top sprinter by 1.2 seconds with a time of 22.18. Chang followed with the first of his two individual victories, clocking a time of 2:02.36 in the 200-yard IM.

Fitch prevailed in the 200-yard butterfly with his time of 2:06.14, and Jack Dalluge (So./Waverly, Minn./Watertown-Mayer) added a win in the 100-yard freestyle (50.21).

Chang contributed the Knights’ last triumph of the meet as he was first to the wall in the 200-yard backstroke with a time of 2:05.88.

Carleton will participate in the annual Ted Mullin “Hour of Power” for Sarcoma Research on Tuesday, Nov. 14. More information about this fundraiser for cancer research and awareness can be found at:
