No. 1 Michigan races past Purdue in road dual meet

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- In its second meet in an eight-day stretch, No. 1-ranked Michigan showed no signs of slowing down as the championships season approaches, downing Purdue 176-124 on Friday. U-M had seven different swimmers win individual events and also took first on one relay.

Two races provided potential previews of showdowns at next month's Big Ten championships. The 100-yard breaststroke was won by junior Richard Funk in 54.67, two spots and nearly two seconds ahead of second-place finishing Lyam Dias. Michigan wasn't quite as fortunate in the 50-yard freestyle, as Purdue's Danny Tucker got to the wall just ahead of U-M junior Bruno Ortiz. Ortiz touched in 20.27, just two hundredths of a second behind Tucker at 20.25.

The Wolverines were in control nearly the entire night, especially in the freestyles. Sophomore Anders Nielsen led from start to finish in the 1,000-yard freestyle, winning the event by a comfortable six-second margin against a short, five-person field (9:19.37). Junior Justin Glanda had a great night in the water, finishing first in the 100-yard freestyle (44.45) and taking second in the 200-yard freestyle (1:37.55). In the latter, Glanda finished in between senior Connor Jaeger, who was first (1:37.52) and fifth-year senior Hassaan Abdel Khalik, who was third (1:38.98).

After Funk collected his second win of the night in the 200-yard breaststroke (2:00.59), Jaeger followed suit, taking the 500-yard freestyle (4:27.02). U-M went 1-2-3 in the 100-yard butterfly, headlined by senior John Wojciechowski. He took first (48.98), followed by Ortiz in second (49.70) and freshman Vinny Tafuto in third (50.44).

The Trojans took home first in the men's 3-meter competition, as sophomore Collin Pollard, who also won the prelims, finished atop the standing with a score of 722.75. Sophomore Adam Payne rounded out the top five in 3-meter, finishing with a score of 606.80.
