Immediate Release: February 21, 2009
Slesnick picked up the Bearcats first win in the 400 IM and set a new conference record in the process with a time of 3:56.23, just edging out teammate senior Brenno Varanda who touched second with a time of 3:56.99.

Freshman Joe Perez-Rogers finished in third place in the 100 back (50.90), and was followed by sophomore Jason Chen who took seventh (51.68), Kevin Kearny who took eighth (52.14), and senior Sean Lorenz who took ninth (52.06).
On the boards, senior Ryan Graham placed second on the three-meter board with a score of 609.60. He was followed up by freshman Nick Turner who came in fourth (574.40) and junior Bob Nolte who came in seventh (446.75).
The men's 400 medley relay team consisting of Perez-Rogers, Palumbo, Dzieniszewski, and Chen placed third (3:21.91).
"We swam great. We had a lot of nice times today," head coach Sean Clark commented. "We had a lot of good energy in the pool. We're representing really well right now."
