St. Mary's City, Md. – First-year Andrew Scott (California, Md./Leonardtown) picked up his fifth program record of the season as the St. Mary's College of Maryland men's swim team concluded the 2018 Capital Athletic Conference Men's Swimming Championships on Sunday. Champions were determined in the 1650 freestyle, the 100 individual medley, the 200 backstroke, the 100 freestyle, the 200 breaststroke, the 200 butterfly, and the 400 freestyle relay.

How It Happened

  • Scott continued his strong rookie campaign by breaking his own school record in the 1650 freestyle. He finished second overall with a time of 16:12.73, which was an NCAA provisional qualifying time and shattered his old mark of 16:39.14 set on December 2 at the 2017 Yellow Jacket Invitational hosted by Randolph-Macon College. His second-place finish secured his All-CAC award.
  • Sophomore Peter Orban (Montgomery Village, Md./Watkins Mills) posted a fifth-place finish in the 200 backstroke in 1:57.10 while junior Colin Cassady (Phoenix, Md./Calvert Hall) came in fifth in the 100 freestyle in 47.39.
  • The foursome of Cassady, Scott, Orban, and first-year Nate Donoghue (Lanham, Md./Eleanor Roosevelt) put up a fifth-place finish in the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 3:16.56.
  • Senior captain Kieran Broder (Olney, Md./Georgetown Prep) wrapped his Seahawk career with a sixth-place finish in the 200 breaststroke in 2:09.62 to reach the podium for the fourth time this weekend.
  • Sophomore Ryan Akhavan (Annapolis, Md./Broadneck) paced the Seahawks in the 200 butterfly with a seventh-place finish in 1:59.74 while Donoghue was third in the consolation final for 11th overall in 2:03.77.
  • The Seahawks finished fourth in the six-team field for the second year in a row. The University of Mary Washington won its 24th overall, and 18th consecutive, CAC championship title, while York College of Pennsylvania finished second with 743 points.
