Elsah, IL - After coming off a loss at Grinnell, the men came out on top against conference rivals Principia College tonight.  Leading the charge was senior Ray Mohaimani.  He was not alone, as junior captain Billy Bafia, sophomores Tanner Grieve and Kevin Boldt, and the rest of the Scarlet Hawks pitched in for the team.

"We came into the meet with high expectations," said head coach Eric Bugby. "Since day one, we laid the ground plan for how to attack each race, how to prepare, and how to succeed.  It began to come together today."

The men started off with an individual win by Kevin Boldt in the 200 yard freestyle.  He back-halfed his victory with a total time of 1:50.16.  "I thought Kevin was smart about his races, showcasing his talents as a distance swimmer, and learning what his pace is and can be," added Bugby.  Boldt's win started a trend for the Scarlet Hawks in the same pool where the 2014 Liberal Arts Conference championship meet will be held this upcoming February.

Sophomore Tanner Grieve was the Scarlet Hawks' top butterflier on the day.  Grieve handily won the 200 yard butterfly with a lifetime best time of 2:00.80.  "Tanner showed poise in the first half of his race and endurance in the back half.  Even as a sprinter, there is potential in his 200."  Sophomore Stefan Nyholm capped the Hawks' 1-2 finish in the event with a season best time of 2:09.41.

Junior captain William Bafia took the 200 yard breaststroke victory with a time of 2:22.65.  This came after a second place showing in the 100 yard breaststroke.

At the end of the day, it was senior Ray Mohaimani, who would lead the Scarlet Hawks with two individual victories and a come from behind anchor in the team's 400 yard freestyle relay victory.  Mohaimani started his day with a season best 2:01.07 victory in the 200 yard backstroke.  He followed the performance up with another season best 4:25.83 which was good for a 10-second victory in the 400 yard individual medley.  Finally, Mohaimani anchored the relay of Bafia, Boldt, and Grieve to makeup a 7-second disadvantage.  "Ray had a well fought, tough day," said Bugby.  "But he handled every race with the proper preparation and execution.  Along with his teammates, Ray is in for a great season.  Now the real fun begins with winter training and the second half of the year."

The Scarlet Hawks next take on Knox College in a sprint meet on December 14 at Ecko pool in Chicago at 2PM.
