Men's Swimming Topples Records at Yellow Jacket Invite

RICHMOND Va. - The Virginia Wesleyan University men's swim finished day two of the Yellow Jacket Invite at SwimRVA on Sunday. The Marlins placed 11th, scoring 208 team points.

Much like the previous day, Max Currens was able to set a new Virginia Wesleyan record in a distance event. Clocking a 19:18.80 in the 1650yd free, Currens dropped his own record by just under one second. During that race, he was also able to drop another record of his as he timed an 11:40.51 in the 1000yd free.

Tyler Strong also finished with a new VWU record, with his coming in the 100yd free. He would finish in 49.47, taking down the record that Kristian Rinkus set in the program's inaugural year.

The Marlins were also able to come away with a new record in the 400yd free relay, courtesy of Currens, Strong, Caleb Royce and Kyle Woolf. The combo turned in a 3:30.01, dropping over one second from the record that was set at ODACs last season.

Men's swimming will return to action again at 1 p.m. on Saturday as the team travels south for a dual meet with Greensboro.
