Men’s Swimming and Diving team took down La Salle 179-121 at home on Jan. 14, bouncing back from a loss to Army the previous day. 

The Orange and Blue took the lead and kept it after the 100 freestyle, where Justin DiSanto ’25 won one of his two events. Chris Kopac ’25 came in second place, and Andrew Greene ’27 along with Colin Smith ’27 also scored in the event.

The Bison finished 1-2-3 in three different events, those being the 1000 freestyle, the 500 freestyle, and the 400 IM. 

Shane Wynne ’26 also won the 200 butterfly and John Gehrig ’24 won the 100 butterfly.

In total, the Bison dominated La Salle with nine first-place finishes, 10 second-place finishes, and 11 third-place finishes.

Some milestones were also reached for the diving team this weekend, as Jack Krug ’26 moved up to 6th in Bison history for the 1-meter dive, with a score of 277.95. This comes one week after Krug moved to 9th all-time against Army. 

“Rather than focusing on scores and numbers, I just try to do all of my hardest dives to the best of my ability. Focusing on the dives and staying in the moment is the key to success,” Krug said.

Next up for the Orange and Blue is a home meet against Lehigh on Jan. 27th at 1 p.m.
