Koenigsberger Breaks Another School Record, Men’s Swimming & Diving Concludes NESCAC Championships

February 23, 2014

For the third day in a row, Stephan Koenigsberger broke another school record as Middlebury finished seventh overall at the 2014 NESCAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Championship hosted by Bowdoin in LeRoy Greason Pool. Williams took home the title with 1,849 points, while Amherst (1,750), Connecticut College (1,468), Tufts (1,147) and the host Polar Bears (777.5) round out the top five. Bates was a close sixth with 777 points, while the Panthers racked up 739.

After last night’s school-record effort in the 100 breaststroke and Friday's record in the 50 breaststroke morning prelims, Koenigsberger established a school mark Sunday in the 200 breaststroke with a fourth-place and NCAA ‘B’ cut time of 2:04.97. That mark breaks the record of 2:07.02 set back in 2004 by Tim Lux.

In the first event of the final evening, Michael McGean finished fourth in the 1,650 free with an NCAA ‘B’ cut time of 16:04.16.

During the 3-meter diving competition, Skylar Dallmeyer-Drennan accumulated 389.80 points for sixth place, while Dylan Peters wound up seventh with 337.75 points.

The 4x400 relay quartet of Mike Oster, Bryan Cheuk, Nick Keenan and Paul Lagasse capped off the championship’s final event with a sixth-place time of 3:08.95.

The Panthers will have a little less than a month off from competition before members of the team who qualify will compete at the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving National Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana from March 19-22.
