Prep Roundup: Wesleyan wins first Metro Invite title

ATLANTA -- Wesleyan's boys team broke four school records this past weekend on the way to winning the prestigious Metro Atlanta Swimming and Diving Championships, a 40-year-old event held at Westminster.

It was the first Metro title for the Wolves, who faced a 50-team field that featured teams from all classifications. Wesleyan's girls also placed sixth.

Michael Reynolds and Will Gregory each broke an individual event record. Reynolds set a new mark with a third-place finish in the 200 individual medley at 1 minute, 57.87 seconds and Gregory established a new record in the 100 breaststroke at 59.01 seconds, which placed him second.

Those two joined Nick Salyers and Anthony McMurry on a school-record 200 medley relay that finished in 1:37.10, good for first place overall. Timothy Marsh, Ryan Buckley, Chase Bartlett and Andrew Sunderman later set a Wesleyan 200 free relay mark at 1:30.75 while finishing second.

McMurry also had a second-place finish in the 100 free (48.71), narrowly ahead of Providence's Caleb Weir, third in 48.73. Reynolds also was third in the 500 free in 4:42.85 and Salyers was second in the 100 back (53.87), just ahead of Weir's third-place time of 54.17.

Bartlett, Salyers, Reynolds and McMurry swam 3:17.27 in the meet-ending 400 free relay, winning the metro title in that event.

Wesleyan diver Zach Hernandez finished second overall with a score of 452.50.
