CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- In a battle of top-10 teams in the Zesiger Center Pool, No. 4 MIT kept its dual meet record perfect on Saturday, moving to 7-0 on the season as the Engineers swam past No. 10 Amherst by a final score of 193-105. Wyatt Ubellacker and Colby Dunn each were part of four victories to help lead MIT to the win.
Ubellacker picked up a pair of individual wins for MIT, starting with a 20.86 time in the 50 Free that was good for the victory. He then came back later in the meet in the 100 Fly, taking that event with a time of 50.77.
Like Ubellacker, Dunn also picked up a pair of wins for the Engineers. He started by besting the field in the 200 Free, touching the wall with a time of 1:42.19. He also started a 1-2-3 sweep for MIT in the 100 Free, taking that event with his effort of 46.16.
Both were also on the victorious MIT relay teams. Ubellacker swam the third leg, and Dunn the anchor leg on the opening 200 Medley Relay that defeated its counterpart from Amherst by nearly 1.5 seconds in 1:33.23. In the 400 Free Relay it was Ubellacker that led off and Dunn that finished off another win for the Engineers as they helped the team to a time of 3:07.07.
Also picking up a pair of individual victories for MIT was Michael Liao who continued his impressive season in the breaststroke by taking both the 100 and 200 races. In the 100 he went 1-2 with Brendan Deveney with his clocking of 57.48, coming back in the 200 to lead a 1-2-3 MIT finish with his effort of 2:05.74.
Deveney won the 200 IM for MIT with an effort of 1:55.58. Finishing second was Ben Bauchwitz, who put together a strong afternoon with seconds in the 200 Fly as well as the 200 Breast.
Tim Wall swam a strong 200 Fly, leading a 1-2-3 MIT finish with his time of 1:53.70, while Ryan TerBush picked up a win in a close 100 Back race, edging Connor Deveney from Amherst by .05 seconds for the win with his time of 52.72.
