Men’s swimming starts with a bang


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men’s swimming team began its season in compelling fashion, blowing by Truman State, 182-78, in Kirksville, Mo.

At least one Hawkeye swimmer came out on top in every single match on Oct. 9.

Iowa began the meet with juniors Max Dittmer and Sean Hagan, freshman Byron Butler, and sophomore Ryan Phelan, who won the 200-medley relay in a time of 1:33.78.

The Hawkeyes didn’t look back from there, winning the rest of their events.

Dittmer paced the Hawkeyes. He helped the team score 40 points overall, winning the 100 breaststroke (59.69), 200 backstroke (1:55.11), and taking part in the 400 freestyle relay (3:11.50) with Phelan, Hagan, and sophomore Paul Gordon.

Butler also stood out for Iowa. Butler won the 100 butterfly (51.84) and the 100 backstroke (51.40) after taking part in the winning 200 medley relay team.

The Hawkeyes' next meet will be against Wisconsin on Friday in Madison.
