The Running Man Challenge, the viral dance craze that started with two high schoolers, has hit the pool.

The NCAA division III Hamilton men recently wrapped up their 2015-16 season with a 9th place finish at the NESCAC Championships at Williams College in western Massachusetts. The Continentals were led by senior John McBratney at the conference championships. McBratney finished in the B final in two individual races, picking up big points for Hamilton. On the first day of competition, he placed 14th in the 200 IM, and then came back to place 13th in the 200 free the next day. He also added a 22nd place finish in the 100 free on the last day of the meet.
Hamilton had three relays place within the top 8– the 400 medley (8th), the 200 free relay (8th), and the 800 free relay (7th). Also making individual contributions for the Continentals at NESCACs was Ryan Cassidy, who was 14th in the mile and 15th in the 1000 free.
