WALTHAM, Mass. – Junior Sebastian Bury (Bellevue, Wash./Newport Senior HS) finished first in two freestyle races and was also part of the Falcons' winning 200 yard free relay team as Bentley University posted a 140-99 win over Babson College in men's college swimming Tuesday night at the Dana Center.
Bury turned in winning times of 22.23 in the 50 free and 49.39 in the 100 free before swimming the opening leg and helping the Falcons take the 200 free relay in 1:29.06. The relay also included junior Tim Connolly (Dorchester/Boston Latin Academy) and sophomores Davis Wilson (Ransom Canyon, Texas/Lubbock HS) and Liam Bartlett (Syracuse, N.Y./William Nottingham HS).
