   Led by five graduating seniors our ECAC squad captured the Men's 
Championship. Alex Paddington,
Nick Cirella, Pat Morrissey, David Sanford, and Kevin Koslosky each 
contributed and finished off their
careers in style. The guys took advantage of the opportunity to swim 
fast and set the tone for the Eastern
team headed to Princeton. I'm proud of their individual and team 
As always thanks for your support
We hope to see you at Easterns!

*CAMBRIDGE, Mass. --* Paced by Tommy Gray 
win in the 1,650-yard freestyle, Harvard's men's swimming and diving 
team completed a wire-to-wire win by taking the ECAC Open Championship 
Sunday afternoon at Blodgett Pool.

While Gray's win was Harvard's only event win in the 20-event meet, the 
Crimson's depth proved to be the difference as Harvard consistently was 
able to place multiple swimmers in the championship finals.

Harvard won the meet with 513 points to finish well ahead of 
second-place Marist, which scored 458.5 points. Columbia was third with 
387.5 points, followed by Johns Hopkins (378), Rider (369), Binghamton 
(366), Yale (358), Penn (236.5), Loyola (159) and Iona (114.5) to round 
out the top 10. Eighteen schools scored points in the three-day event.

Gray, who had taken second in the 500 freestyle in Friday's opening day 
of competition, cruised to a six-second win the 1,650 as he clocked 
15:59.58. Gray was one of three Crimson swimmers in the top eight as Tim 
took sixth and Kevin Koslosky 
was eighth.

Freshman Michael Dunn 
reached the championship final of the 200 backstroke and delivered a 
third-place finish, while senior Patrick Morrissey 
followed with a sixth-place effort in the 100 freestyle.

Senior Nick Cirella 
took third in the 200 breaststroke, while Harvard had two of the top 
four finishers in the 200 butterfly. Freshman Rick McKellar 
touched in second place, while first-year man Robert Lynch 
was fourth.

The Crimson took ninth in the closing 400 freestyle relay, but Harvard's 
lead proved to be insurmountable.

Harvard will look for back-to-back championships next weekend as the 
Crimson competes in the Eastern Intercollegiate Swimming League 
championships at Princeton's DeNunzio Pool.
