Macomb, Ill.- Six different UIC swimmers captured individual event victories to pace the Flames' men's swimming and diving team to a 121.5-111.5 win over Western Illinois at Brophy Hall Pool on Sunday.
The Flames also won both relay events to improve to 4-2 in dual meet action this season.
Senior Blake Booher set two new Brophy Pool records against the Leathernecks. Booher won the 100-yard freestyle in a natatorium-best :46.36, while his 50 free leadoff split of :20.82 in UIC's victorious 200 free relay was also an all-time pool record.
Sophomore Sean Dawson picked up a win in the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:51.89.
