NEWARK, Del. - Looking for its first Colonial Athletic Association victory of the season, the Towson men's swimming and diving team was defeated Saturday at rival Delaware by a 220-78 final score.
Despite the result for the Tigers (3-6, 0-5 CAA), Towson head coach Pat Mead was encouraged by the effort.
"We swam better than last weekend and many of our guys showed improvement today," Mead said.
Freshman Matt McKenney was strong yet again for the Tigers, as he won both the 100-yard butterfly and 200-yard butterfly events. McKenney's time of 50.93 in the 100-yard butterfly edged Delaware's Cole Clark for the victory and McKenney's result of 1:52.59 beat out Andrew Speece in the 200-yard butterfly.
Sophomore Matt Collingwood performed exceptionally in the 1,000-yard freestyle, recording a lifetime best time of 9:33.97 and finishing in second place. Collingwood was the top finisher in the event for the Tigers, who placed four swimmers in the top six in the event.
