Glenn & Strausser Finish 1-2 in 100 Butterfly at Ivy League Championships
Princeton, N.J. – Brown sophomore Tommy Glenn (Haddonfield, N.J.) raced to a convincing first-place finish in the 100 Butterfly last night, setting a school record with a 46.73 time at the 2012 Ivy League Championships. The previous record was held by Daniel Ricketts '09 (47.04). Freshman Jeffrey Strausser (Lafayette, Calif.) finished strong with a time of 47.86 and placed second behind Glenn in a tightly contested event. Both times were NCAA "B" cuts, with Glenn's time ranking him in the top 20 nationally.
Earlier in the evening, Strausser was a member of Brown's 200 Medley Relay that set a school record with a time of 1:30.59. He combined with Paul Hunter (Andover, Mass.), Mike McVicker (Larchmont, N.Y.) and Oliver Diamond (Salt Lake City, Utah). The 400 Medley Relay school record was also broken in an NCAA "B" cut time of 3:17.10 by the team of Hunter, McVicker, Glenn and James Hunter (Canfield, Ohio).
The Bears 800 Freestyle Relay team of Glenn, Huner, Brian Barr (Martinsville, N.J.) and Alex Pascal (Longmeadow, Mass.) posted an NCAA "B" cut time of 6:38.11, narrowly missing the school record.
Other notable (personal best times) Friday performances were posted by McVicker (100 Breast), J. Hunter (200 Free), Michael Johnson (100 Fly), Pascal (100 Back), Adam Voss (100 Back & 100 Fly), Barr (200 Free), Glenn (200 Free - relay leadoff), P.
