Evan Dunn, in the midst of a strong freshman season, picked up two wins in the 200 fly (1:54.11) and the 200 breaststroke (2:10.67).
Other winners for the Flames include junior diving captain Tristan Oleynik in the one-meter dive (260.55), Dan Hare in the 200 IM (1:59.02), Brenden Dougherty in the 200 free (1:44.24), Brooke Sawyer in the 200 back (2:09.36), Andy Peterson in the 200 back (1:56.25) and Kelly Hashoian in the 500 free (5:09.53).
