Feb. 26, 2004
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Michigan State men's swimming and diving opened competition at the 2004 Big Ten Championships in West Lafayette, Ind., today (Feb. 26). The Spartans stand in 10th after the first session of competition, paced by sophomore Ian Clutten in the 400 medley relay.
Clutten swam second as Rudolf Wagenaar, Nick Harley and Matt Wisniewski combined for a time of 3:17.05, an NCAA provisional qualifying time and a new school record, breaking the old record by over half a second.
The 200 freestyle relay team of Wagenaar, Patrick Saucedo, Harley and Wisniewski also posted a ninth-place performance with their time of 1:21.35, just .23 seconds off the school record.
"We had some unexpected performances today," said head coach Matt Gianiodis. "Ian Clutten's splits were unbelievable in the 400 medley relay. We're in 10th after the first session - now we look to improve tomorrow."
Michigan State swimming and diving continues at the 2004 Big Ten Championships through Saturday at Purdue.
