Tigers Fall Two Spots On Day Two of NCAA Meet

Columbus, Ohio--Auburn dropped two spots on Saturday during day two of the NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships while falling out of contention for the team title.

The Tigers, the defending champions, are in sixth place with 215.5 points. That is well off the pace set by Cal with 348.5 points while Texas is second with 330.

"The second day of competition wasn't what we thought it would be and what we know it could have been," Auburn coach Brett Hawke said. "However, we have to move on from having a bad day and come back tomorrow with a new attitude."

Auburn's best performance was in the opening event on Saturday night, a second place finish in the 200 medley with the team of Jared White, Adam Klein, Tyler McGill and Gideon Louw swimming a time of 1:24.13.

The top individual performance for the Tigers came from McGill in the 100 butterfly. The senior finished fourth with a time of 46.01.

The next best finish was a fifth place by Klein who swam a 52.51 in the 100 breaststroke.

Senior diver Kelly Marx took seventh place in the three-meter diving competition.

The competition, which was delayed 24 hours to illness with 18 swimmers, concludes on Sunday at Ohio State University.
