The Utah men move to 2-0 with a 184-110 victory over the Pioneers. Cody Rempfer won three events including setting a pool record in both the 400 IM, along with the 200 medley relay. The 200 medley relay team of Rempfer, Andrew Cole, Evan Castro and Jonathan Larsen finished with a time of 1:33.99. “Denver swam incredibly tough and they will be a good program in the future.
