Williams Men move up to 10th at NCAA Championships

INDIANAPOLIS – The Williams College men's swimming team is in 10th place with 99 points after the third of four days at the 2018 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships being held at the Indiana University Natatorium.

"The guys have been fighting and scraping for points all week," Ephs' head coach Steve Kuster said. ""Lucca Delcompare had two outstanding 200 flys today and the 800 free relay was fast enough to get the Ephmen relay on the podium for the first time this week."

Delcompare had a swim of 1:48.52 in the 200 butterfly in the morning, then cut .50 hundreths of a second off in the nighttime championship final to finished sixth overall with a time of 1:48.02. David Pearcy was 19th overall with a time of 1:50.16.

Delcompare also helped out the 800 free relay team as they finished 8th in a time of 6:40.62. The team consisted of first year Henry Marquardt, Delcompare, senior Mike Cassidy and first year Jamie Lovette. 

Senior Tim Kostolansky picked up some points for the Ephs in the 100 back, placing 10th overall, second in the consolation finals, with a time of 49.58 seconds after a morning swim of 49.26 seconds. 

Day 4 of the NCAA Championships will begin tomorrow morning at 10:00 with the morning prelims.
