Grizzly men open 2010-11 campagin with Adams State Duals
ASC men competed for first time in four decades on Saturday at Plachy Hall Pool
ALAMOSA – For the first time in four decades men’s swimming came to Adams State College as the newly resurrected squad hosted fellow Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference members Mesa State and Colorado Mines for a three-way dual meet to open the 2010-11 season.
In Saturday’s meet, the lone home event of the year for the Grizzlies, teams were scored head-to-head but swam against both teams at the same time. Mesa State topped ASC 283-83, and Colorado Mines scored a 270-67 victory against the Grizzlies. The Mavericks also scored a victory in their dual with the Orediggers by a tally of 216-157.
ASC’s top individual finishes on the day came by freshman Taylor Rousell (Port Orchard, Wash.) and redshirt freshman Cody Robson (Athens, Texas), as each tallied a fifth-place finish. Rousell clocked a time of 23.70 seconds in the 50 yard freestyle for an ASC men’s modern era record and was first non-Mesa State swimmer to the wall, while Robson finished in 2:31.51 in the 200 breast. Robson also managed a sixth-place finish in the 100 breast with a time of 1:07.90 and was 10th in the 50 free in 24.21, good for an ASC men’s modern era record.
Rousell’s day also includes top-10 showings in the 200 free, where he was ninth with a time of 1:58.43 and the 100 fly in which he was seventh in 59.79.
Freshman Max Berumen (Lafayette, Ind.) took a pair of eighth-place finishes in the 100 breast and 200 individual medley (IM), in times of 1:12.79 and 2:19.90, respectively, the latter setting the ASC men’s modern era record.
In the 100 back, freshman Jared Machado (Castle Rock, Colo.) raced to his best finish of the with a seventh-place showing in 1:09.49, where he was followed closely by teammate Jacob Clapp (Fountain, Colo.) who clocked 1:11.93 for eighth place.
Freshman Vianny Guevera (Tyler, Texas), raced unattached but competed in the 100 back, 50 free and 100 fly.
The Grizzlies will be in action again next Friday and Saturday when they’ll travel to Grand Junction for the Intermountain Shootout hosted by Mesa State, which will be scored similarly to the Adams State Duals. The Grizzlies will compete against Mesa State, the University of Utah and the Air Force Academy on both days, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday.
