Men's Swimming Hosts Manchester Saturday

WILMINGTON, Ohio – The Wilmington College men's swimming team dives back into competition at 1 p.m. Saturday in a dual meet against Manchester University.

The Teams: Wilmington and Manchester. The teams met earlier this year at the Ohio Wesleyan Corbiere-Merion Invitational where Wilmington came out ahead, in fourth-place, to Manchester's sixth.

The Coaches: Trip Breen enters his 19th season as the head coach of Wilmington's men's and women's swimming teams. Breen has been named Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) Men's Coach of the Year four times, the most recent in the 2016-17 season. Mike Kroll is in his fourth season as head men's and women's swimming coach at Manchester.

Swimmers to Watch: In the sprint events, Andrew Stewart is a force to be reckoned with, having placed in the top-five in every meet this season. Breaststroke events are dominated by the pair of Cody Nash and Frederick Rankin. Alex Tillapaugh adds speed to most of the Fightin' Quaker relay events. Manchester brings successful distance swimmer Kole Kelley and long stroker Christian Poole to the mix.
