McLiney tied for second in the men’s platform and also placed sixth in the one-meter and ninth in the three-meter.
Several Aggie men’s swimmers were seeking to improve their chances of advancing to the NCAA Championships at the American Short Course Championships over the weekend in Austin, Texas. Most notable was junior Omar Enriquez, who broke his own school record in the 1,650-yard freestyle with a time of 15:03.38 (old record was 15:06.23 in 2011). Not improving their season best but winning were junior Paul-Marc Schweitzer in the 200 freestyle (1:36.04) and junior Simon Frank in the 400 IM (3:47.44).
