BOSTON, Mass. — The University of Saint Joseph (USJ) men's swimming and diving team currently sits sixth in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Swimming and Diving Championship Meet, after day two of the three-day competition at Simmons University (SU).
The Blue Jays have scored 27 points, and are very much in contention with one day to go. They are 22 points behind Elms (49), 24 behind Saint Joseph's College (51), and 39 points behind third-place Husson (66). Norwich currently leads Regis 180-118.
USJ was led by freshman Jacob Wyse (Broad Brook, Conn.), who scored 14 points on the day, including a stroke for stroke win in the 200-yard individual medley, with a time of 2:05.40, just a half a second ahead of second place. Wyse also finished fourth in the 100 Butterfly with a time of 58.24 seconds, good for five more points.
Freshman Jack Monroe (Waterbury, Conn.) also qualified for New Englands, which will be held later this month. Every lap in the pool, the Blue Jays continue to polish their craft in just their first year of competition.
The GNAC Championship continues tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. with morning preliminaries.
