    In UIC most recent outing at Oakland, the men’s squad (0-2, 0-2 HL) fought until the end, but was outscored by the Golden Grizzlies in a 179-119 final. Sophomore
    Christian Grobe was victorious in the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 58.98. Sophomore Ryoto Kuwahara flew through the 200 butterfly with a time of 1:53.28 to come out on top.

    The quartet of Nick Kowaleski,
