NEW HAVEN, CONN.  – Senior Nejc Zupan and sophomore diver Brett Gillis led the Dartmouth men’s swimming and diving team at the Ivy Tri-Meet on Saturday afternoon, hosted by Yale.

Sophomore James Verhagen, Zupan and Gillis were responsible for winning six events at the meet for the Big Green.

In the dual meet, Dartmouth fell to both Yale and Penn, but did score some great individual times and set two new pool records.

Gillis began the afternoon for the Green and White with a 336.15 score on the three-meter board.

After the diving portion was completed, Dartmouth won four individual races; with Zupan claiming three first place finishes in the 100-Breast, 200-Breast and 200 IM. Verhagen won two races, the 200-Medley Relay (lead-off leg) and 100-Back.

Of the three wins by Zupan, two were new pool records. In the 100-Breast, a new Kiphuth record, Zupan finished in 54.79. In his second Kiphuth record event, Zupan finished the 200-Breast in 1:59.45. In his final victory of the meet, Zupan won the 200-IM in 1:49.19.

In the 200-Medley Relay, Verhagen defeated Mike Lazris of Yale by .29 seconds at 23.43. In his second win of the day, Verhagen won the 100-Back at 49.79.

In the one-meter diving, junior Ryan Shelley placed third with 267.50 points.

Dartmouth men will be idle until the weekend of Jan. 24-25 when they will host the Dartmouth Invitational.
