After the first night of competition, the No. 15 Minnesota men’s swimming and diving team leads Wisconsin and No. 18 Purdue at the Triple Duals. The Gophers lead the Badgers 98-88 and the Boilermakers 124-62.

“I think we had a lot of good things happen for sure,” head coach Kelly Kremer said. “We stared the meet really well on the men’s side with the 200 medley relay, I thought we got off to a great start.”

In that 200 medley relay, the Gophers A team of Luke Bushman, Jared Anderson, Sandy Whitaker and Derek Toomey finished with a time of 1:30.63 for first-place.

Sean Nesheim earned first-place honors in the 200 free, touching the wall at 1:39.03, while Hrvoje Capan finished third at 1:41.05.

Minnesota finished in the 1 and 2 spots in the 100 breast, lead by senior captain Anderson with a time of 55.05. Josh Hall came in a close second with a 55.39.

The final victory of the night came by junior captain Toomey with his time of 20.30 in the 50 free. 

“We saw some really good things early,” Kremer stated. “Then as the meet when on, I feel like a lot of attention to detail and some of the things didn’t go as well in the back side. For the men in the 800 free relay, we started strong but didn’t finish as strong tonight on that side.”

The meet continues Saturday with diving events beginning at 9am and swimming at 10:45am.

“We saw some good things, we saw some things we have to work on, but in that sense it’s kind of a typical meet,” said Kremer. “We’ll have to come out tomorrow and perform better across the board.”
