Newcomers Perform Well as Men's Swimming is Bested By Randolph

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Virginia Wesleyan University men's swim team fell to Randolph, 125-54, Saturday afternoon at the VWU Natatorium. Despite the loss the Marlins set two new school records.

It was two newcomers to the squad who put their names in the relatively new record books. David Mosley-Heath set the new standard in the 200-yard IM with a time of 2:17.85 before Tyler Strong raised the bar in the 100-yd backstroke, clocking in at 1:00.34. Strong would also nab the team's sole first place finish as he led the pack in the 50-yard free with a time of 24.74.

Max Currens represented the Marlins well in the distance events, taking home a second-place finish in the 1000-yard free as he touched in at 13:13.69. Teammate Kyle Woolf also brought home a couple points as his time of 1:15.33 in the 100-yard breast stroke garnered a second-place finish.

Men's swimming will return to action at 2 p.m. on Saturday as the squad heads south to compete against Chowan University.
