NEWARK, NJ – The Monmouth University men’s swimming team resumed competition in the second semester with a dual meet against NJIT on Friday afternoon at NJIT Wellness and Events Center.
The Hawks fell by a 179-110 final score in the first competition back from winter break.
NOTES & QUOTES
“Definitely a tough day for us, we struggled right from the start and had difficulty matching the intensity of NJIT. They kind of took it to us early in the meet and we never really recovered. This is absolutely an outlier for our guys, but it is not uncommon to struggle a little bit coming off winter break and having a long break without competition. I know the guys will be encouraged and excited to get back to conference competition next week.”
– Monmouth head coach Matt Nunnally
– Blake Reynolds hit the wall first in the 50 free with a time of 21.64. Reynolds earned his 21st career win and his fourth this season.
– Cole Dyson finished ahead of the field in the 1000 free with his time of 47.85. Dyson now has seven individual wins this season and eight in his Monmouth career.
– Nate Heisey won the 200 IM with his time of 2:03.00. It was Heisey’s third win of the season and the eighth of his career.
Monmouth returns to the pool on Saturday, January 22 when it travels to Saint Peter’s for a dual meet against its MAAC counterparts. Both the men’s and women’s team will compete beginning at 12 p.m.
