Michigan State Men's Swim Team Lose In A Squeaker To Eastern Michigan

EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan State University men's swimming and diving team traveled to Ypsilanti, Mich. this weekend in hopes of revenging its 154-88 home loss last year at the hands of the Eastern Michigan University Eagles, but instead of exacting revenge the Spartans lost their second in a row to the Eagles 125-118 on Friday night at the Michael H. Jones Natatorium in Ypsilanti. The dual meet was Michigan Stateis first of the year. The Spartans are 0-1 overall and 0-0 in the Big Ten Conference.

The Spartans were led by sophomore Chad Ganden who won the 100-freestyle with a time of 46.15 and he was second in the 50-freestyle in 21.37. Junior diver Jeremy Hertza was a double winner for the Spartans in the 1 and 3-meter diving competitions with scores of 244.27 and 271.13, respectively.

After facing its first four competitions on the road, Michigan State will head to the friendly confines of the Charles McCaffree pool in the IM West building for its first home meet of the 1998 season. The Spartans will host Penn State on Friday, January 16 at 3 p.m.
