Kenyon Opens A Huge Lead After Day One of Men’s Div. III Champs

ATLANTA, March 20. REIGNING NCAA Division III Swimmer of the Year, Marc Courtney-Brooks (Columbus, OH/St. Charles) picked up right where he left off last season.

The Kenyon College junior won two titles in record times and led the Lords to a 110-point lead over the rest of the competition at the 2003 NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championship.

Kenyon finished Thursday, the first day of the three-day national meet at Emory University, with 230 points. Johns Hopkins was in second place with 120 points and Carnegie Mellon was in third with 105 points.

Courtney-Brooks set the tone in the 500-yard freestyle, an event he won with an NCAA record time of 4:23.28. He erased the old mark of 4:24.54 set by Kenyon's Dennis Mulvihill back in 1988.

Courtney-Brooks was also a part of the winning 400-yard medley relay team that placed first with an NCAA record time of 3:16.77. He joined Read Boon (Durham, NC), Russell Hunt (Columbus, OH) and Andrejs Duda (Jelgava, Latvia) to annihilate the old record of 3:19.31 set by Kenyon’s 2002 team.

Kenyon’s relay win in the 400-yard medley, coupled with an earlier victory in the 200-yard freestyle relay, gave the Lords their 16th straight relay title, dating back to the 2000 Championship. The Lords won four of five relay events in that season and then swept all five in each of the 2001 and 2002 Championships.

In addition to those victories, Duda who was also a part of the victorious 200-yard freestyle relay team, tacked on another Kenyon win in the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 1:49.24.

Other winners from Thursday included Mt. Union College’s Eddis Singleton (East Cleveland), who won the 50-yard freestyle for the second straight season, clocking 20.07, and Whitworth College’s Ryan Freeman (Portland, OR), who won the one-meter diving competition.
