GRANVILLE, Ohio--  Top-ranked Denison men's swimming and diving walked away from the 2018 Denison Invitational with the team championship. The Big Red totaled 2,936 points to win the event by 1,064 points over second-place, Emory University.  Third place went to Washington University-St. Louis with 1,530 points.  Fourth-place belonged to Division II Wayne State at 1,403 points and Thomas More placed fifth with 193 points.

The Big Red racked up 19 more NCAA 'B' cut times on Saturday to go along with four event titles.  Denison's distance free depth was on full display in the 1,650 free as Matt Hedman broke his own pool record with a time of 15.18.98.  First-year Lukas Gately placed third and he did it out of the B-Final as he won the heat with a 'B' cut time of 15:38.64.  James Baker checked in fourth at 15:44.13. Dayen Wilson (15:53.77) and Jackson Berman (16:10.16) placed eighth and 10th, respectively.  Baker, Wilson, and Berman all posted provisional qualifying times.

Another pool record fell in the 200 butterfly as five-time All-American and last year's third-place finisher in the 200 fly Mitch Williams won the event with a personal best time of 1:46.65.  Noah Houskeeper followed in fourth at 1:49.87.  He posted a career-best 'B' cut time of 1:49.17 in prelims.  Matt Reed and Kymani Senior finished in fifth and ninth place respectively.  Both logged 'B' cuts in prelims as Reed touched in 1:50.14 and Senior posted 1:50.66.

The 2018 NCAA Division III national champion in the 200 backstroke, Bebe Wang, set a new pool record with a winning time of 1:45.47.  John Stauffer improved his 'B' cut time by 0.48 seconds after touching sixth in 1:49.17.  Nick Froemming posted a 1:49.18 'B' cut in prelims and finished seventh in the finals.  In the B-Final, Samuel Jo placed 10th (1:49.81) and Chas Sigloh was 13th (1:51.65).

In the 100 freestyle, Denison placed 10 swimmers in the top-18 led by Drake Horton's third-place finish in 44.88.  In prelims, Matt McHugh and Senior both posted 'B' cut times of 45.00. They went on to place sixth and ninth in the finals, respectively. 

Three more provisional qualifying times were logged in the 200 breaststroke, led by Richie Kurlich's time of 2:00.44 that landed him in second place.  Tiernan Foster Smith was fifth in 2:02.67 and Ryan Stevenson place ninth in 2:04.04.

On the 3-meter dive, Liam Simmons placed second with a six-dive score of 216.65.  Brendan Downey placed fourth with a score of 169.10.

The Big Red capped off the three-day invitational with a resounding victory in the 400 free relay as McHugh, Wang, Horton, and Gerlach touched in 2:57.52.

Denison was led in scoring by Senior who finished with 103.5 points over the course of the three-day meet. 

In lieu of admission to the Denison Invitational donations and non-perishable food items were collected at the gate. Over three days nearly $2,000 was collected along with 478 food items.  Donations will be made to the Market Street Pantry and the Licking County Food Pantry.
