Although the Knights lost to the St. John’s Johnnies (155-143) during Saturday January 14th’s meet, they had a great day. The men won a total of nine events and broke three pool records.

Spearheading the effort was Eric Klontz ’13. The junior took part in felling three pool records. Individually he took the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle races and provided the anchor leg in the men’s 400-yard medley relay.

Mamoru Kanazawa ’13, Jesse Gourevitch ’14, and Benito Ramirez ’14 joined Eric Klontz to win the medley relay. Kanazawa had two other individual wins in the 200-yard freestyle and the 100-yard butterfly.

Gourevitch also bagged two individual triumphs in the 100-yard and 200-yard breaststroke. Tom Holmes ’13 won the 100-yard backstroke.
