Freshmen Power Undefeated Bentley to Win at Norwich, 172.5-102.5

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Freshman Sebastian Bury (Bellevue, Wash./Newport Sr. HS) and Alex Liulakis (Tenafly, N.J./Tenafly HS) each won three events as the Bentley University men's swimming and diving team completed the 2012 portion of the schedule with a 172.5-102.5 victory over Norwich University Saturday afternoon at the Goodyear Pool.

Overall, Bentley won 11 of 13 individual events to push its record to 5-0 on the season.

Bury was the first to the wall in the 50 yard backstroke (26.94 seconds), the 50 freestyle (23.27) and the 100 free (51.11), with his performance in the 50 back the best of the year by a Falcon swimmer. Liulakis had Bentley's fastest times thus far this season while winning the 50 butterfly (25.72) and the 100 individual medley (59.27), and he was also first in the 100 fly (57.39).

Bury and Liulakis were also part of Bentley's 200 medley relay team, which placed second.

Double-winners for the Falcons were senior Tyler Champagne (Orange, Conn./Amity Regional HS) and sophomore Connor Mulvey-Hudson (Ardmore, Pa./St. Joseph's Prep). Champagne was victorious in both the 200 free (1:52.51) and the 500 free (5:09.53) while Mulvey-Hudson turned in winning efforts in the 50 and 100 breaststroke, with his times of 29.45 and 1:04.59 both Bentley season bests.

Freshman Colton Bridge (Tolland, Conn./Tolland HS) completed Bentley's list of winners as he took one of the two diving events with a score of 217.35.

Bentley has about a month before it competes again, and that meet will also be in Vermont, Jan. 9 at St. Michael's College.
