Notre Dame Athletics | January 22, 2021
The No. 18 Irish men’s swimming and diving team got off to a hot start in Sessions I & II of the annual Shamrock Invitational Thursday. After the first day of competition, Notre Dame leads Missouri State, 203-35.
“The men are really energetic, and they appreciate being able to compete more than ever,” head swim coach Mike Litzinger said. “Our whole philosophy is that we’re going to get something out of this season. Right now, the men are on a roll, and they’re feeling really good about themselves.
“We need to keep it perspective; there’s always someone better than you out there, there’s always a challenge, but they seem to be responding very well to everything that we’re putting in.”
Notre Dame notched four pool records on Day One: Jack Hoagland’s 4:15.39 in the 500 Free; in the 200 Medley Relay, as Brendan Santana, Josh Bottelberghe, Cason Wilburn and Topher Stensby posted a 1:26.23; Charles Korndorffer in the 100 Fly (47.22); and again courtesy Hoagland, this time with a 3:43.78 in the 400 IM.
