Men’s swimming to participate in Big Al Open

  • too fly | Junior David Jakl broke his own previous pool record in the 100 fly in Uris Pool.

After falling to Harvard in the final dual home meet of 2013, men’s swimming and diving (2-2, 1-2 Ivy) will compete in the Big Al Open in Princeton, N.J., over the weekend. 

The Light Blue will face Brown, Princeton, Fordham, Rider, and Villanova during the three-day meet. 

The Lions had a rough start to the dual meet season, falling big against Penn on the road, 185-113, on Nov. 15. 

Over the next two days, however, the Light Blue made up for that loss, defeating Yale, 153-147, and Army, 182.5-115.5.

In their most recent meet, the Crimson topped the Lions, 170-130, at Uris Pool. Harvard claimed victories in 10 of 16 events and also set three pool records. 

Junior David Jakl was the Lions’ silver lining in their loss to Harvard. He has yet to lose in the 100 fly in Ivy League dual meet competition this season, and he broke his own pool record with his winning time of 48.41 seconds. 

The Big Al Open will start on Friday at 11 a.m. and close with the finals on Sunday at 5 p.m.
