Men’s Swimming and Diving Finishes Second at UNLV Invitational

LAS VEGAS — Senior Zack Allen broke the school record in the men's 100 free and a school record was broken in the men's 400 free relay as the Cal Poly men's swimming & diving team finished second at the UNLV Invitational over the weekend.

The men's team combined to score 675 points to finish second. The women's team scored 302.50 for a sixth place finish at the annual event.

Allen set the new school record in the finals after it had already been set twice during prelims, once by Allen and then broken by fellow senior Dominic Dalpiaz. In the finals, Allen set the record with a time of 43.71, going on to finish with the second fastest final swim time and first in the 'B' final. Prior to Saturday, the previous record was set by current junior Nic Clark last season with a time of 44.54.

In the men's 400 free relay, Allen, Dalpiaz, Clark and junior Paul Rogers shattered their own school record time of 2:58.33 they set last season with a time of 2.57.16. That was good for a second place finish in the event.

The men's relay team also finished second in the 800 free relay with a time of 6:37.85.

Sophomore David Hudson won the 200 butterfly after finishing with a time of 1:46.35.

The diving team was highlighted by freshman Molly Wilson, who finished second in the women's 3-meter dive with a score of 238.15 and freshman Jackson Cudmore, who also finished second in the men's 3-meter dive with a score of 285.20.

Also of note on the women's side, junior Emily Peters' preliminary time in the 50 free of 23.57 is the third fastest time in school history.
