It was the men’s 200 free relay team that produced the most impressive showing in the final event of the day. Ryan HrosikBrady SamuelsIdris Muhammad and Nikola Aćin teamed up for an eye-opening October time of 1:19.06, which ranks third nationally on the young season and was nearly good enough for a spot among the program’s all-time top 10 list. Samuels (19.77), Muhammad (19.49) and Aćin (19.33) all posted sub-20 second 50-yard splits on the final three legs. Hrosik won the 50 free individually Saturday with a time of 20.75.

Masy Folcik (100 breast), Keelan Hart (100 free), Jade Knueppel (50 free) and Maggie Love (100 IM) joined Aćin (200 free), Hrosik (50 free) and Samuels (100 back) as Boilermakers to win an individual event and contribute to a relay winner Saturday. As freshmen making their collegiate debuts this weekend, Love won four individual events and Samuels was victorious in an individual race on both Friday and Saturday.

The Purdue divers dominated the springboards. The Purdue men had the top five finishers on both 1-meter and 3-meter. The women produced the top four finishers in both events. Emily (Bretscher) Pfeiffer swept the women’s springboards as the only student-athlete at the meet to win a pair of individual events.

Freshmen Jordan Rzepka and Tyler Downs traded 1-2 finishes in the men’s springboard events, registering their first career collegiate victories. Rzepka won on 1-meter with the sixth-best score (410.65) in program history and Downs was victorious on 3-meter (his Olympic event this summer) with the 13th-best mark (394.20) in team history. Downs also posted the eighth-best score (391.25) in the Purdue record book on 1-meter.

Jenna Sonnenberg (319.60, 12th) and Sophie McAfee (316.20, 13th) also joined the Boilermakers’ all-time leaderboards on 1-meter this weekend.
