WALTHAM, Mass. – Seniors Owen Karl (Rochester, N.Y./Brighton HS) and Sebastian Bury (Bellevue, Wash./Newport Senior HS) each won two swimming events, and classmate Colton Bridge (Tolland, Conn./Tolland HS) broke a school record while sweeping diving, as Bentley University recorded a 189-78 win over St. Michael's College in men's college swimming Wednesday afternoon at the Dana Center pool.
Bentley captured 15 of 16 events, including eight 1-2-3 sweeps, to improve to 4-4 on the season. St. Michael's dropped to 1-4.
Karl registered wins in the 200 yard freestyle (1:50.87) and the 500 free (5:03.18), two of the events in which the Falcons had the top three finishers. Bury was also part of a pair of 1-2-3 sweeps as he claimed the 50 backstroke in 26.36 and the 50 free in 22.63.
Bridge, who ran his unbeaten skein to 14, broke a record that held by Matt Cupps since 2001 for the second time this season. He posted a 305.40 off the three-meter board, surpassing Cupps' mark by 11.7 points. Earlier in the meet, Bridge captured the one-meter with a 288.60.
