Zach Benson added a bronze finish in the 200 Yard Breaststroke in 2:15.69.


John Maevski, who set Loras' 1-Meter 6- and 11-dive records earlier this year, was fourth and earned 19 team points with his 441.90 weekend score.


The Duhawks opened the event with a third place finish in the 200 Yard Freestyle Relay. Casey, Benson, Lance Scallon, and Grant Duncan comprised that group, finishing in 1:29.17. They closed the event with another third place finish in the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay. Scallon, Casey, and Benson, were joined by Michael O'Toole in that race.
