Wesleyan - 5th of 11 teams
TEAM SCORING - Williams 1775.5, Tufts 1538, Amherst 1364, Conn. College 957, Wesleyan 815.5, Middlebury 781.5, Hamilton 767.5, Colby 615, Bates 505.5, Bowdoin 485, Trinity 466.5.
HIGHLIGHTS - Wesleyan posted its second-highest team finish in the nine year history of the NESCAC meet, placing fifth. Only the fourth-place showing of the 2006 squad was better. Individual Cardinals accounted for one Wesleyan record -- Dan Storms '10 in the 200-yard free with a 1:42.27 clocking to finish fourth -- while tying another -- Michael Bailey '11 with his third-place showing in the 200-yard individual medley (1:54.95). Both these performances were NCAA Division III provisional qualifying times. Also coming up with an NCAA "B" cut was the 800 free relay squad of Jeff Arace '12, Ryan Beck '10, Chris Becker '09 and Storms. Their time was 6:55.90. This same relay group tied the Wesleyan mark in the 400 free relay with its 3:09.00 result. The final two NCAA "B" cuts came from Becker in the 50-yard free as he placed eighth in :21.15 and Beck in the 200 free with a 1:42.63 during preliminaries. The Cardinals also excelled on the diving board as three Cardinals finished among the to six in both the one-meter and three-meter events. Leading the way for Wesleyan was Gianfranco Galluzzo '12, who placed third on both boards, recording a 454.35 score in the one-meter dive and 474.85 in the three-meter dive. Dave Wilkinson '09, who earned the Senior Diver of the Year award as the senior diver with the most career points in the NESCAC Championships, was fourth on both boards while J.P. Valette '10 placed fifth for three-meter diving and sixth for one-meter diving. Both Galluzzo and Wilkinson are under consideration for NCAA Championships participation. All the potential NCAA qualifiers will find out their fate before too long.
