MEN’S RECAP

One of Princeton’s top performers was senior Raunak Khosla, who swept the breaststroke events. Khosla first won the 100 breast with a 54.47. He was out in 25.78 and back in 28.69, marking the fastest splits in the field on both 50s. Khosla went on to win the 200 breast in 2:00.18. He again posted the fastest split in the field on all four 50s, going 27.53, 30.47, 30.92, and 31.26.

Khosla also swam the 400 IM, clocking a 3:59.24. He was actually the fourth-fastest Princeton swimmer in the event, swimming exhibition (not for points) as such. The 400 IM was a great showing for the Tigers. Hunter Kim won the event in 3:55.19, leading first year teammate Lucas Strobek (3:55.91) and junior Peyton Werner (3:56.47).

Princeton’s Tyler Hong was a three-event winner on the day. He started out with a 49.10 to win the 100 back, leading a 1-2-3 charge by the Tigers. Brett Feyerick (49.70) came in second, while Josh Brown was third in 50.76. Hong also won the 200 back, posting a 1:46.15. Dartmouth’s Joe Moll was leading Hong at the 100 mark, but faded on the back half and ended up finishing second in 1:48.30.

Hong capped off his meet in the 100 fly, leading another 1-2-3 punch by the Tigers. He swam a 48.92, touching out teammate Nicholas Lim (49.08). Lucas Tudoras, a first year, was third, swimming a 49.81.

Lim was the winner of the 200 free, clocking a 1:38.65. Mitchell Schott, a Princeton first year, won the 200 fly in 1:49.09, holding off teammate Max Kreidl (1:49.33) on the final 50. Schott also won the 500 free, clocking a 4:30.51, six seconds faster than anyone else in the field.

The Tigers were dominant in the sprint free events as well. In the 50 free, Brett Feyerick led the way, swimming a 20.56. He touched out Max Walther, who came in second at 20.63. Adell Sabovic came in third, posting a 20.90.

The 100 free was a similar story, as Sabovic won the race with a 45.00. Schott took second, posting a 45.31, while fellow first year Lucas Tudoras was third in 45.34.

John Ehling (Princeton) won the 1000 free in 9:21.48.

Princeton went 1-2 in the 200 medley relay. The ‘A’ squad of Tyler Hong (22.68), Josh Brown (25.02), Nicholas Lim (21.71), and Brett Feyerick (19.97) teamed up for a 1:29.38. Max Kreidl (23.35), Kael Mlinek (24.71), Lucas Tudoras (21.81), and Jonathan Pollock (20.47) combined on the ‘B’ relay for a 1:30.34 and a second-place finish.

In the 400 free relay, Princeton had Lim (45.99), Schott (44.61), Brown (44.64), and Max Walther (44.42) post a 2:59.66.

Raunak Khosla’s breastroke was impressive, but even more so when given context- after posting his 2:00 200 breastroke and before returning for the 400 IM, he stopped by for some grub at local eatery Hoagie Haven. After finishing a whole Mac Daddy, he washed it down with half of a shrimp po’boy just moments before the officials called his heat onto the blocks for the 400 IM. His stomach? Bottomless. His breastroking prowess? Unmatchable. His J’s? Fresh and uncreased.
