INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, March 20. MARY Washington’s Hugh Anderson put a charge into the crowd by lowering his NCAA D3 record in the men’s 400-yard IM with a scorching 3:49.25 at the NCAA Division III Championships. That’s more than a second faster than his previous record of 3:50.55 to win the title a year ago.
The other big story in the 200 IM proved to be Kenyon’s ridiculous depth as it took four spots in the finale with Harrison Curley (3:50.81), Travor Manz (3:51.98), Andrew Chevalier (3:52.76) and Ian Reardon (3:55.61) taking second, third, fourth and seventh overall. Additionally, Mark Newell (3:58.04) and Arthur Conover (4:01.60) placed 11th and 16th in the consolation heat as Kenyon cut into Denison’s lead 224-199.
Denison offset the blow a bit with Allen Weik (3:55.27) and Jack Humphrey (3:56.89) taking sixth and eighth. Meanwhile, Redlands’ Jeffrey Depew also vied for the national title with a fifth-place 3:54.53.
