Denison men sending max roster to NCAA D-III championship

2018 Denison Men's Swimming & Diving National Team
2018 Denison Men's Swimming & Diving National Team

GRANVILLE, Ohio--  In a season of unprecedented time drops and national qualifying performances, Denison will be sending 18 individuals to the NCAA Division III Championship on March 21-24 in Indianapolis, Indiana. 

Denison is the only program in all of Division III men's swimming and diving that will be sending the maximum number of swimmers to the national meet.   The Big Red is seeking its fourth national championship since 2011. Denison men's swimming and diving have not finished lower than third place at nationals since 2005 (12 years).

Five-time All-American, Kenny Fox boasts the nation's top time in the 100 butterfly this season at 48.15.  He will be joined in that event by a pair of national team rookies in Brett Weicht and Kymani Senior.  Weicht punched his ticket to Indianapolis with a 48.50 in time trials of the 100 fly at the North Coast Athletic Conference Championship.

Carson Clear made his nationals debut in 2017 and helped the Big Red to a second-place finish in the 200 medley relay. This year, he is the top seed in the 100 backstroke after placing first at the NCAC championship in 47.87.  Senior Jason Wesseling is making his fourth-straight national team appearance and is a veteran in the backstroke events, logging six All-American finishes in his career.

The 400 individual medley and the 500 freestyle will be feature events for Denison.  In the 500 free, Matt Hedman, Stuart Hohm, James Baker and Drake Horton are ranked in the top-16 on the unofficial psych sheet.  Hedman's time of 4:27.68 leads the group as the fifth-fastest time posted in D-III this year.

Hedman also leads a foursome of Bebe Wang, Francis Biagioli and Mitch Williams in the 400 IM.  Hedman's time of 3:54.00 is the third-fastest this season.

DU will be battling it out for points in a stacked sprint freestyle field.  Zach Wagner and Senior lead the Big Red in those events.  Wagner is a six-time All-American who placed fifth in the 100 free at last year's national meet.  Senior is coming off NCAC titles in the 50 free, 100 fly and four relays.

Junior Jake Ball qualified for the meet with a time of 2:00.22 in the 200 breaststroke at last week's Kenyon Fast Chance Invitational. He and Ryan Stevenson (2:00.35) are both national title contenders in the event, ranking third and fourth, respectively.

Denison is ranked in the top three in every relay.  The 400 medley relay team of Wang, Tiernan Foster-Smith, Fox and Wagner is the top-seed with an entry time of 3:15.47.
