The Princeton Tigers welcomed the US Naval Academy to Princeton on Friday night, and walked away with a dominant 208-92 victory on senior night. 

Leading the way for the Tigers was junior All American Raunak Khosla, who won all three of his individual events on the night. The Roswell, Georgia native started his meet with the 200 fly, where he pulled away from Navy’s Ethan Tack on the final 50 to win 1:47.33 to Tack’s 1:48.08. Khosla then returned to win another close race in the 200 breast, again using the field’s fastest final 50 to come away with the win in a season-best 2:00.33. Touching just behind Khosla was Navy’s Jackson Schultz, who finished in second in 2:00.77. Khosla closed out his meet with a victory in his signature event, the 400 IM, which he won in 3:56.08. The junior’s season bests sit at 1:42.48 in the 200 fly and 3:45.55 in 400 IM, both from December’s Big Al Invitational. 

Also impressing for Princeton was freshman Tyler Hong, who swept the backstrokes. In the 100, Hong used a quick back half to take the win by .14 ahead of Navy’s Caleb Mauldin, touching in 48.67 to Mauldin’s 48.81. The Westlake, Ohio native was then dominant in the 200 back, where he posted a 1:46.53 to win by over five seconds. Hong also finished runner-up in the 100 fly in 48.94. Hong’s season bests stand at 47.92 in the 100 back, 1:45.33 in the 200 back and 47.60 in the 100 fly, all from the Big Al Invite.

On the boards, Tiger senior diver Colten Young celebrated his senior night in record breaking fashion. The Coto de Caza, California native dominated the 3 meter with a score of 406.50, setting a new Princeton program record. Young also finished runner-up in the 1 meter behind teammate Griffen Brooks, who won with a score of 336.83 to Young’s 329.63. 

The Midshipmen’s lone event win came in the 100 fly, where sophomore Patrick Colwell touched first in 48.46. The New Canaan, Connecticut native went out fast, turning in 22.68 at the halfway point, a half second clear of the field and held off Princeton’s Tyler Hong for the win. Colwell also finished in fifth in the 200 fly in 1:51.55. Colwell’s season bests sit at 47.82 in the 100 fly and 1:46.59 in the 200 fly, both at the Army-Navy dual meet.
