NCAA Div. I Men: Eastern Michigan Takes Mid-America Crown

OXFORD, OHIO. March 3. EVEN though Miami University won the most individual titles–ten–at the men's Mid-American Conference Swimming and Diving Championship, which ended this evening, it was Eastern Michigan which wound up being crowned as conference champion. The Eagles amassed 888 points to 794 for the Red and White. It marked the twentieth time EMU had won the conference title.

Miami's John Carroll (Toledo, Ohio/St. Francis) and Will Sensenbrenner (Champaign, Ill./Central) capped off an incredible run over the three days by winning a third MAC individual title each.

Carroll, a junior who had already won the 400 individual medley and the 500 freestyle, came up with the goods one more time by winning the 200 butterfly, finishing with a time of 1:46.51. Carroll finishes the competition having defended by his 400 IM and 200 butterfly championships.

Sensenbrenner, a senior who had already won the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly, completed the hat trick by winning the 100 freestyle with a time of 45.26.

Eastern Michigan showcased its strength on the final day of the three-day meet, winning four events. EMU's Keith Falk took the 1650 free in 115:46.08, just edging Miami's Kevin Mulgrew (Malden, Mass./Malden Catholic) who clocked a time of 15:47.45.

Eagle sophomore Chris Olszewski came storming from behind on the final 50 yards to overtake Buffalo's Jason McLachlan and win the 200 back, 1:48.31 to 1:48.70.

Still another Eastern Michigan swimmer, Bryson Tan, took the 200 breaststroke. The Eagle senior led all the way, touching in 2:00.23 to set a pool record. Eastern Michigan wrapped up its twentieth title with a 3:00.49 victory in the 400 freestyle relay.
