WALTHAM, Mass. – Winning 11 of 13 events, Bentley University cruised to a 134-71 win over UMass-Dartmouth in men's college swimming action Wednesday night at the Dana Center pool.
A trio of Bentley student-athletes each won two individual events, including junior Colton Bridge (Tolland, Conn./Tolland HS) who swept the diving. He recorded a score of 233.77 on the one-meter board and bettered that with a 247.07 from the three-meter.
The other double-winners were sophomore Matt Ahlmeyer (Morris Plains, N.J./Morristown HS) and freshman Aiden Karam (Norwich, Conn./Norwich Free Academy).
