Notre Dame Men's Swimming & Diving | Nov. 15, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
The University of Notre Dame men’s swimming and diving team kicked off its busy weekend dual meet slate with a 197-103 victory Friday night over Michigan State at the Rolfs Aquatic Center. The Irish (3-4) claimed a total of 11 individual and freestyle events, leading to the season-high point total.
“First of all we love being home and you could see it in warm-ups,” Notre Dame head coach Tim Welsh said. “We were relaxed, we were comfortable and we were excited to be in our own pool. We raced very well and I thought our divers did very well. Michael Kreft’s three-meter score was really solid.
“Overall we were balanced tonight,” he added. “We made some changes and they worked out and it was a good, energetic, well-raced meet.”
Notre Dame opened the meet with 10 straight race victories, the most consecutive gold medal swims by the Irish in competition this season. The night was kick started by a victorious effort for the Notre Dame ‘A’ squad of Bogac Ayhan, Colin Babcock, Zach Stephens and Frank Dyer in 1:30.54 in the 200 medley relay.
