Trinity University beat CMS 126-113 the home opener for the swimming & diving team with the meet coming down to the final relay. CMS won only four of the 13 events, but stayed close throughout the meet with eight seconds and eight thirds. If the Stags had won the final relay, they would have pulled out a one-point win.
Individual event winners included Matt Gannon (JR, Valencia [pictured]) in the 200 backstroke, Dan Ciliske (FR, Houston, TX) in the 200 individual medley and Ryan Kristensen (FR, Saugus) in the 50 freestyle. CMS also won the 200 medley relay with a team of Michael Chiu (FR, Northridge), Brian Li (FR, Hong Kong, China), Ciliske and Kristensen. Chiu's 50 back leadoff on the medley relay was an alltime CMS top-10 mark.
