The Wells College men's swimming team will begin competition Friday at the 2017 North Eastern Athletic Conference Swimming & Diving Championships. Wells is the defending NEAC champion. The Express won the 2016 title, its third NEAC crown in program history, following previous titles in 2010 and 2013.
The Express will have five swimmers in the lineup that return as all-conference performers after helping the team to the title last year – Arthur Brooks, Lucas Donnenwirth, Austin Heil, Tyler Lewis, and Brandon Sprague.
Ian Ronan earned all-conference honors in the 2012 championship. He ranks in the top-10 in Wells history in the 100-yard and 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard and 200-yard breaststroke.
Other Wells swimmers on the program's record board include Heil, Donnenwirth, Sprague, Brooks, and Lewis. Adam Sleezer will also be in competition for the Express.
The three-day meet will consist of preliminary heats beginning each day at 10 a.m. Event finals will take place beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 5 p.m. Sunday.
A video webstream of all six sessions is available from Cazenovia College.
Admission to the event is $3 per session, or $5 per day. Meet programs will be sold for $3 and heat sheets will be available for $1 each.
