Freshman demolishes meet mark (Men’s swimming)

Northwestern freshman star Matt Grevers has struck again. This time it was in Thursday’s opening day of the Big Ten championships at Purdue.

In the first conference championship meet of his college career, Grevers broke the Big Ten championships record in the 50-yard freestyle. His time of 19.44 was nearly four-tenths of a second faster than his closest competitor and helped the Wildcats jump to their current third-place position.

“It was an impressive performance, especially by a freshman in his first Big Ten event,” NU coach Bob Groseth said in a press release. “Let’s hope he breaks another record tonight.”

Grevers’ 19.44 is the second-best 50-free time in Big Ten history.

In the preliminary round of the 200 individual medley, senior Tony Swanson earned an NCAA “A” qualifying time of 1:46.00 — guaranteeing him a place in the NCAA meet.

Freshman Mike Alexandrov and senior Mark Hamming also made the 200 IM finals. Alexandrov finished fifth and Hamming is in seventh place.

Sophomore Brian Davis set a school record in the 500 freestyle. Davis’ fifth-place time was good enough for an NCAA “B” time, which could qualify him for the NCAA meet.
