NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's swimming team defeated visiting Regis, 114.5-69.5 in a dual meet at the Tripp Athletic Center Saturday.
For the Corsairs, sophomore Steve Szarek (Middletown, CT/Middletown HS) won the 1000 yard freestyle on 11:23.42 and the 200 yard butterfly in 24.08 seconds, sophomore David Lyons (Haverhill, MA/Central Catholic HS) won the 50 yard breaststroke in 31.89 seconds and the 400 individual medley in 5:01.32, junior Andrew Adams (Palmer, MA/Palmer HS) won the 200 freestyle in 2:01.59 and was a member of the victorious 200 medley relay team, which finished first in 1:52.92 and also included sophomore David Adams (Tyngsboro, MA/Tyngsboro HS), freshman Tom Silva (Seekonk, MA/Seekonk HS) and freshman Chris Currier-Haymes (Brockton, MA/Brockton HS), sophomore Andrew Haughey (West Springfield, MA/West Springfield HS) won the 50 backstroke in 28.87 seconds, and junior Matt Fahey (New Bedford, MA/Middleborough HS) was first in three meter diving with 227.55 points.
"We had more good swims today," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "All of our men have qualified for at least two events at the New England Championships, so we can really make a push now towards the end of the season. Regis has been a co-ed college for only three years, so their program is relatively new. We are looking forward to hosting our last home meet of the season Thursday against WPI."
The Corsair men improved to 3-4 with the win. UMass Dartmouth's men and women will return to action when they host WPI Thursday evening. Regis will meet Elms next Saturday.
