David Nelson

Senior Kyler Van Swol won his first ever medal at the Big Ten Championships on Friday when he took home second place in the 100-yard butterfly. Van Swol's time of 46.16 in the event is a new Minnesota record.

Freshman Jakub Maly continued to impress with a fifth place finish in the 400 IM. Maly finished eighth in the 200 IM last night.

While the Gophers received solid individual performances, their 200-yard freestyle relay team was disqualified to open up the third day of the meet.

But after that, with Van Swol's and Maly's performances, the Gophers got back on track.

Freshman Daryl Turner placed 12th in the 100-yard backstroke.

The men's team also received a strong showing on the three-meter springboard with freshman Matt Barnard and sophomore Manny Pollard taking eighth and ninth place respectively.

The Gophers placed sixth overall after three days of swimming. Michigan still holds first place with Indiana in second and Ohio State in third.
