CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - MIT men's swimming and diving won both relays and seven individual events, but finished just short of an impressive sweep against NESCAC rivals, Amherst College and Connecticut College. The Lord Jeff squeezed by the Cardinal and Gray, 156-142, although the Camels weren't nearly as lucky in losing, 209-73.

Senior Josiah Rosmarin enjoyed a successful stint in his final dual meet of the year, winning the 100 and 200 free. Rosmarin led from the gun in taking first in the 200 (1:46.02), while his victory in the 100 topped senior teammate and second-place finisher, Grady Snyder. Rookie Peter Wellings finished fourth in the 100 to give the Engineers a commanding edge in the event.

Rosmarin nearly had a third victory in the 50 free, but Snyder paced the attack this time, leading a 1-2 finish against the field with a mark of 22.14. Snyder (53.62) would later pick up his second win of the afternoon, edging out freshman teammate Deke Hu (54.00) in the 100 fly.

As it has for much of the campaign, MIT dominated in the breaststroke events. Rookie Jeremy Chang led a 1-2-4 finish in the 100, while Matt Angle added a Gold for MIT in the 200 (2:12.62).
