Kenyon Relay Meet: Lords Win, Ladies Runners Up

The NCAC Kenyon Relays, held annually at Kenyon College, kicked off the season for the Lords and Ladies and brought together eight teams last night for some high-speed racing. The meet format is such that every event is a relay, and some unconventional races are held in the mix, including a 500 crescendo relay (50, 100, 150, 200), a 1500 (three swimmers do a 500) and a 400 Individual Medley (4×100 IMs).

 

Only the first relay from a given team scored, however plenty of exhibition relays competed, and in some cases, C and D relays beat out their own A and B relay teams. That being said, only one event had a team other than Kenyon or Denison finish in the given top three.
