EAST LANSING, Mich. -- The University of Notre Dame swimming and diving program concluded their dual meet season with a sweep at Michigan State, Saturday afternoon. On the day, the Irish tallied 60 top-three finishes and 27 first-place spots, including all four diving events.

"It was a really solid day of swimming and diving for us," Head Coach Mike Litzinger said. "I am very proud of our group as they showed versatility and depth at both ends of the pool versus Michigan State."

The women finished their season undefeated, going 10-0-1 while the men defeated the Spartans in their first dual of the new year. Posting seven clean sweeps through 16 events, the women tallied 196 points to beat the Spartans 196-101. 

"Our women capped off an undefeated dual meet season, and showed our strength in numbers by dominating the boards and the relays," he added. "This group is very special and I am looking forward to championship performances by all."

Notre Dame's men beat Michigan State 188-108 to improve their 2018-19 season record to 4-4.

"The men came out of the gate taking the first four events and never looked back," Litzinger went on. "We had a chance to showcase student-athletes in other events, and hone some skills. In particular Matt Grauslys did a fantastic job, taking first in both the 100 and 200 fly."
