Both Garnet squads sit in second place after the first day of competition-the Swarthmore women totaled 205.5 points (Gettysburg leads with 277 points) while the Swarthmore men collected 190.5 points, sitting right behind first-day leader Franklin & Marshall with 261 points. Junior Doug Gilchrist–Scott broke the school record in the 50 freestyle while picking up a gold and two bronze medals. Anne Miller ’10 also broke a record (the 500 freestyle), collecting three medals for the Garnet women.
