The Stag swimming and diving team hosted SCIAC opponent Occidental on Saturday, January 23 at CMS's Axelrood Pool. CMS came through with 176.5 to 58.5 win.
The first swimming event was among the most exciting of the day, with the top three places in the 400 yard medley relay decided by less than half of a second. The Stag "freshman" relay of Jordan Lieberman, Brad Perfect, Devin Bowers and Sean Fitzgerald touched first in 3:45.08
The 1650 freestyle was also tight with CMS freshman Sean Smith just out-touching teammate Chris Ramos's late charge 18:05.29 to 18:05.86.
Sophomore Jeff McNerney [pictured] brought a charge to the pool deck in the 200 freestyle, posting and impressive 1:44.75 to top teammate Austin Hallett's strong 1:47.41 in the event.
Freshman Andrew Fevery won both boards, scoring 228.90 on the 3-meter springboard and 237.75 in the 1-meter event.
