WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men's swimming and diving won its second meet of the season, here Saturday, on Senior Day at the Field House pool as the Bison won 88-77 over Stevenson University. Roberto Chavez (Jarales, N.M.) is the lone senior on the men's team and was honored for his dedication to the team this season.

Gallaudet's 200-yard medley relay team of junior Dary Berke (Fremont, Calif.), freshman Kenneth Peters (Indianapolis, Ind.), junior David Bruno (Patchogue, N.Y.), and Chavez took first place with a time of 2:40.00. 

The Bison (2-10) took first place in two other events, with Berke winning the 100 backstroke (37.87) and freshman Gideon Firl (Frederick, Md.) winning the 100 breaststroke (1:13.76) and taking second in the 50 freestyle (25.02) and 100 freestyle (57.05). Bruno also earned two second-place finishes in the 200 freestyle (2:48.80) and 500 freestyle (7:47.23). Freshman Chang Hwang (Seattle, Wash.) took second in the 1,000 freestyle (15:14.07) and 100 breaststroke (1:26.71) while junior Xuan Lin (Mount Prospect, Ill.) took second in the 200 IM (3:05.34) and 100 butterfly (1:25.87).
