Following this afternoon’s three-meter diving finals, Denver opened the swimming portion of the Championships when senior Morgan McCormick (Golden, Colo.), junior Bailey Andison (Smiths Falls, Ontario), redshirt-junior Heidi Bradley (Victoria, B.C.) and senior Morgan Wice-Roslin (Colorado Springs, Colo.) combined for a Summit League Championship Record and University of Denver women’s record of 1:37.19 in the 200 medley relay. The school record bested Denver’s previous best time by 0.24 seconds, a record that was set at the 2015 Summit League Championships.

The Pioneers followed that up with a win in the men’s 200 medley. Senior Anton Loncar (Hillsboro, Ore.), freshman Cy Jager (Moscow, Idaho), sophomore Peter Webster (Odense, Denmark) and sophomore Sid Farber (Portland, Ore.) turned in a 1:26.26 to take the top spot.

Denver’s women snapped the school record in the 800 free relay by 0.12 seconds and the Summit League Championship record by 1.35 seconds to take first in the third swimming event of the evening. Freshman Aysia Leckie (Georgetown, Ontario), Andison, junior Annelyse Tullier (Dallas, Texas) and senior Maddie Myers (Arvada, Colo.) took the top spot with a 7:10.32.

In the men’s distance relay, the quartet of redshirt freshman Stephen Calkins (Calgary, Alberta), sophomore Colin Gilbert (Kamloops, B.C.), sophomore Hugo Sykes (Weston, Conn.) and senior Ray Bornman (Mackay, Queensland) combined for a 6:24.63 to first place in the final event of an abbreviated opening night.

All four of Denver’s B relays took second on Wednesday night.

In diving on Wednesday, two Pioneers qualified for the A-Final in the men’s 3-meter dive. Sophomore Alex Morgan (Dyer, Ind.) and freshman Turner Dobbs (Evanston, Ill.) finished fifth and eighth, respectively with scores of 283.40 and 251.65.

Following the events, Denver took its chance at a time trial in the 200 medley relay, breaking the Summit League Championship record with a 1:25.92. Sophomore Neil Wachtler (Waco, Texas), Jager, Webster and Farber combined for the record time in the time trial swim.
