Trinity Men's Swimming And Diving Comes Up Short Against Connecticut College

Hartford, Conn. - Sophomore Radojica Pavlovic (Belgrade, Serbia) won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 22.09, as the Trinity College Bantams fell to the visiting Connecticut College Camels, 193-84, in men's swimming and diving action this afternoon at Trinity Natatorium.  Trinity, playing in its lone home competition of the 2018-19 season, falls to 3-2, while the Camels improve to 3-2.  The Bantams will visit Bowdoin on Saturday, January 26 at 3 p.m. in their next meet.

Pavlovic edged Connecticut College's Jaleel Watler by .20 seconds in the 50-yard free, and was also part of two second-place foursomes in the relay races.  He teamed with senior tri-captains Gordon Hyduke (Malvern, Pa.) and Nikola Kostic (Belgrade, Serbia) and sophomore Blake Jamilkowski (New York, N.Y.) for a second-place time of 1:39.20 in the 200-yard medley relay, and with Hyduke and sophomore Kyle Long (Cape Elizabeth, Maine) and Marco Rupp (Wolfsburg, Austria) for a runner-up time of 3:18.35 in the 400-yard freestyle relay. 

Rupp added second-place times of 1:48.12 and 53.81 in the 200-yard free and the 100-yard fly, respectively, while sophomore diver Alex Schrock (Long Lake, Minn.) posted quality scores as the lone male diver in the meet at 348.66 off the one-meter board and 393.75 off the three-meter board.  Rupp finished just .49 seconds behind the winner in the 200-yard freestyle and a mere .09 seconds shy of first in the 100-yard butterfly.
