The Lead: The MIT men's swimming and diving team fell to Division I Brown University on the road of Saturday evening by a score of 192-103. During the meet, however, Bouke Edskes (Rockville, Md.), Sam Ubellacker (Georgetown, Ky.), Samuel Solomon (Rockville, Md.) and the 200-free relay team registered marks that rank in the top-12 among all Division III student-athletes.

- Individually, Ubellacker had himself a great day in the pool as he finished third in the 100-fly in 51.12, which ranks 11th in Division III, and third in the 50-free in 21.20. Edskes also had a strong day in the pool as his first place finish in the 200-IM with a time of 1:55.40 ranks him fifth in the country. The sophomore also touched the wall third in the 100-back in 53.00.

- Junior Brandon McKenzie (Brigantine, N.J.) earned a trio of second place finishes as he notched times of 57.55 in the 100-breast, 2:06.47 in the 200-breast and 1:56.53 in the 200-IM. His 100-breast time currently stands at seventh fastest in the nation. The junior also aided the opening 200-medley relay team of Edskes, himself, Ubellacker and Tomazin to second place in 1:32.82.

- In the diving well, Solomon swept both boards with scores well above the NCAA Division III Diving Regional qualification standards as he scored 325.35 on the 3-meter board, which ranks 12th in Division III and 286.28 on the 1-meter board.
