GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Albion College shaved nearly a second off the time it set in winning the 800-yard freestyle relay a year ago, but this time it finished second on the opening night of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Swimming & Diving Championships.
Despite diving in without Derek Bosko and Sebastian Tostado, two of the top freestyle swimmers in the history of the league, the Britons still finished the race in 6:47.11.
Thursday events include the 200 freestyle and 400 medley relays and individual swims in the 500 freestyle, 200 individual medley and 50 freestyle. The men will also compete in 3-meter diving.
