Swimming finishes season undefeated

On Saturday, the No. 5 MIT men’s swimming and diving team battled the No. 16 Lord Jeffs of Amherst College in the Zesiger Center Pool. Amherst held the score close early in the meet, but MIT hit their stride and cruised to a 174-124 victory, locking up their second undefeated season in Institute history.

Before the start of the meet, five MIT seniors were recognized for their dedication and contributions to Tech’s swimming and diving program.

Luke R. Cummings ‘10 and Jeffrey Y. Zhou ‘10 had a stellar day in their final home meet. In the 50 Free, Cummings (20.71) and Zhou (21.49) led a 1-2-3 sweep with teammate Wyatt L. Ubellacker ‘13 (21.79). To polish off their dual-meet career, each senior picked up another individual win - Cummings in the 100 Free (46.25) and Zhou in the 100 Fly (51.65).

In diving, Chao He ‘12 scored a win for MIT in 3-meter (166.85).

Brendan T. Deveney ‘13 came through big for MIT. After taking second in the 200 Free (1:45.69) behind Fraser and second in the 200 Back (1:56.72) behind teammate Brendan F. Liu ‘13 (1:54.18), Deveney picked up his only individual win in the 200 IM (1:57.85), securing the points that would seal the meet for the Engineers.

MIT ends the season with an 8-0 dual-meet record, tying last year for the best record in the Engineers’ history.

MIT swims next at the Wheaton Invitational on February 6.
