October 1, 1999

The men are coming off a very successful 1998-1999 campaign. Their dual meet record was 6-4 with outstanding performances at the Patriot League Championships and Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships. Coach Dailey had three swimmers earn their way onto the All-Patriot League Team. Senior Ilya Fishman, Patriot League champion in the 100 back, Sean Hansen, tops in the league in the 100 breast, and Matt Haggerty, who made finals in three events, all earned all-league nods.

"This is the largest contingent we have had make the All-Patriot League Team since 1992," said Dailey. "I am very proud of their performances."

Returning to the pool next year for the Leopards are 12 varsity letterwinners. The distance/middle distance freestyle events will be paced by sophomore Haggerty, junior John Corrigan, and junior Mike Gary. The sprints will be handled by senior co-captain Jason Thayer, sophomore Tim Ledbetter and sophomore James Hertan. The backstroke events will look for junior Rob Bateman and senior Chris Mears to continue dropping times. Breastroke will be handled by senior co-captain Hansen who has won the 100 and 200 breast twice at Patriot League Championships over the past three years. Sophomores Andy Fisher and Asoka Ratnayake will shoulder the breast stroke duties. Sophomore Dave Pennella will see action in the butterfly events. Diving will be handled by junior ECAC qualifyer Mike Sanda.

Coach Dailey is looking forward to his freshman class to make significant contributions in the pool for the Leopards this year. According to Dailey, the team "did not have a huge recruiting class commit, but all of our freshmen are outstanding student-athletes."

"We're look forward to this season. We are coming off a great season last year and an exceptional recruiting class. The upperclassmen will have to work hard to keep their positions on the team this season," said Dailey.
