ALBION, Mich. – The Albion College men's swimming and diving team needed a boost of confidence with the start of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Championship just a little more than a month away.
The Britons got it with a 179 ½ - 120 ½ victory over 25th-ranked Wabash College.
Jake Huttenlocher won the breaststroke events, the 400-yard individual medley and he was part of the winning 200 medley relay to start the meet.
Nate Kozycki, also a member of the medley relay, took first place in the butterfly events.
Albion and Wabash split the first place points in the 200 freestyle when first-year swimmer Tommy Trueax came from behind to tie Justin Wallar at the wall (1:45.26).
Albion will compete on the road for the remainder of the season. Its next meet is a Jan. 26 MIAA dual at Hope College.
