Russell Deghi (Sebestopol, Calif./Analy H.S.) led the way for Valpo in the 100 backstroke with his 16th place finish with a time of 58.19 seconds. 

Thomas Patrick (Hartland, Wis./Arrowhead H.S.) led the Crusaders  in the 200 freestyle with his time of 1:57.51.

The lone relay of the day saw Wegehaupt, Alex Cox (Tinley Park, Ill./Lincoln-Way North H.S.), Deghi, and Kevin Fedde (Fort Collins, Colo./Heritage Christian H.S.) post a time of 1:30.74 in the 200 free event.

The Crusaders have scored 108 points through two days of action at the met, 17 more than Alma.  Grand Valley State leads the way with 686 points followed by Kalamazoo with 308 points.  Host Calvin is one spot ahead of Valpo with 150 points.
