OXFORD, Ohio—Denison's lead at the Miami Invitational has grown to 138 points after day two of three at the Corwin Nixon Aquatic Center.  In five individual events on Friday, the Big Red racked up 25 top-18 finishes and 13 NCAA 'B' cuts.

In the 100 butterfly, Kenny Fox set the tone in morning preliminaries with a season-best time of 48.52.  He went on to win the A-Final in 48.873.  Six Denison swimmers followed in positions 5-19 led by Brett Weicht (5th – 50.04), Eric Gerlach (8th – 50.31 and 49.90 in prelims), Kymani Senior (10th – 50.10), Liam Marsdsen-Readford (12th – 50.32), Matt McHugh (13th – 50.33) and Carson Clear (19th – 50.51).

DU got another victory in the 400 IM from the defending Division III champion in the event, Jack Lindell.  He touched in 3:51.56 which was a season-best 'B' cut time.  In fact, five of Denison's six top finishers in the event all posted season-best provisional qualifying times.  Bebe Wang followed in fifth place in 3:58.50 and Francis Biagioli was sixth in 3:59.91.  Eighth and ninth-place, respectively was Ryan Stevenson (4:00.96) and Matt Hedman (4:03.12).  Tim Smith rounded out the top performers in the event with a 14th place time of 4:02.71.

In the 200 freestyle, Stuart Hohm was the runner-up with his best showing of the season after a 'B' cut of 1:38.49.  Stevenson and Kevin Benson followed in the A-Final with sixth and eighth place finishes, respectively.  Stevenson touched in 1:40.82 while Benson finished in 1:41.02.  In the B-Final, Max Howes won the heat in 1:40.00 and that was a season-best 'B' cut time.  Ben Burdick was third in the heat and 10th overall in 1:41.36 while Aaron Saccurato placed 18th in 1:43.77.

Jason Wesseling led DU in the 100 backstroke with a second-place time of 49.47 while Wang won the B-Final in 50.05.  Both times were season-best 'B' cuts.  Lindell placed 12th in 50.86 and PJ Desmet in 13th in 51.06 closed out the event.

In the 100 breaststroke, Tiernan Foster-Smith led the way with a season-best 'B' cut time of 55.64 and a sixth-place finish.  Jake Ball won the consolation heat with a time of 56.42 after a provisional qualifying time of 56.16 in prelims.

The 200 medley relay team of Wesseling, Foster-Smith, Fox and Gerlach finished third in 1:31.19.  Emory won the event in 1:26.74, breaking the meet record set by Denison's team of Sean Chabot, Damon Rosenburg, Andrew Rich and Ryan Fleming in 2013.

Denison returns to the pool on Saturday for the final day of the Miami Invitational.  Preliminaries will begin at 10 a.m. with finals starting at 6 p.m.
