The Loras College men's swimming and diving team returned to campus last Saturday after setting five new Loras records and two Iowa Conference records. The squad came in fourth place overall with 366 points, swimming against seven other teams.

Senior Zach Gries set three of the five Loras records in the 100 back (53.76), 200 back (1:58.64) and the 200 IM (1:58.77); and both of the IIAC records in the 100 back and 200 IM.

Sophomores Ricky Lukacs and Andy Pape will also make the record board at Loras. Pape swam the 100 back in 54.54 (only to have it broken by Gries later in the meet) and Lukacs' reached the wall in 4:18.65 in the 400 IM.

The Liberal Arts Championships completed the season for the Duhawks. Loras finished second in the IIAC with a 2-1 record and 6-4 overall for the 2009-10 season.
