Men's Swim & Dive Overwhelms Whittier, 211-49

PASADENA (Jan. 19, 2019) – Sophomore Alex Janosi (Ann Arbor, Mich. / Dexter) was one of several Beavers to impress as a three-event winner for Caltech men's swimming & diving in a 211-49 victory over Whittier College on Saturday morning.

Janosi showcased his versatility with wins in the 200 and 50 Free while anchoring the victorious 200 Free Relay to cap the meet. As a team, Caltech won all but a single swimming event as classmate Andy Rothstein (Potomac, Md. / Winston Churchill), junior Thomas Gallup (Houston, Texas / Phillips Exeter Acad.), senior Henry Steiner (Petaluma, Calif. / Casa Grande) and freshman Nick Jasinski (Crystal Lake, Ill. / Crystal Lake Central) also each won a trio of events in an overwhelming display by the Beavers. Rothstein paced the field in the 100 Back and 500 Free after leading off the winning 200 Medley Relay team, while Gallup won his typical breaststroke double. Steiner was one of two Beavers to appear on both winning relays and posted an exceptional 100 Fly time (52.66) at this point in the season. Jasinski, meanwhile, showed his potential for dominance with sub-two-minute wins in both the 200 Fly and Back.

Freshman Timothy Yao (Thousand Oaks, Calif. / Dougherty Valley) and sophomore Adam Kogan (Clifton Park, N.Y. / Shenendehowa East) rounded out the event winners on the day for Caltech, with Yao coming within half a second of his personal best 100 Free time. Yet still perhaps the highlight of the day was rookie Colin Chun (Los Angeles, Calif. / Venice) leading off the 200 Free Relay with an in-season team record 21.51 split – nearly half a second faster than his personal best as a high school senior.

Head Coach Andy Brabson and the Beavers will enjoy a week off from competition before heading to Pomona-Pitzer Colleges on Saturday, Feb. 2 with less than a month remaining before SCIAC Championships.
