CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Queens University of Charlotte men’s swimming team, winners of the last four NCAA Division II National Titles, picked up right where it left off, winning a dual meet with Davidson College on Friday night in the season opener for both sides inside the Levine Center.

Queens took the top spot in 12 of the 14 events held during the meet including both relay races. The team of sophomore Alen Mosic, freshman Jan Delkeskamp, senior Marius Kusch and junior Dmytro Sydorchenko turned in a time of 1:32.03 in the 200-Yard Medley Relay as Queens claimed the top three finishes in the meet’s first race.

Mosic teamed up with senior Mitchell Harwood, freshman Miller Albury and sophomore Vince Regent in the 400-Yard Freestyle Relay for another first-place finish.

Kusch collected three individual wins during the meet, taking first in the 100-Yard Freestyle , 200-Yard Freestyle and 100-Yard Butterfly. His times in the 100-Yard Freestyle and 100-Yard Butterfly were both fast enough to qualify as NCAA ‘B’ Standards.

Sophomore Baptiste Leger had multiple wins, taking the crown in the 100- and 200-Yard Backstroke, while Delkeskamp ended his first collegiate meet with victories in the 100- and 200-Yard Breaststroke.

Other individual winners in the meet included Regent (50-Yard Freestyle), sophomore Hendrik Faber (500-Yard Freestyle) and freshman Mohamed Hegazi (200-Yard Butterfly).

The Royals return to the pool in three weeks when Queens hosts University of Indianapolis and Wingate University in a tri-meet on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. in Charlotte.
