After the first of three days of competition, the men's swim team currently sits in 6th place at the 2010 Ivy League Championships with 194.5 points.
The first big performance of day one for the Elis came from freshman Mike Dominski, who took 5th overall in the 500-yard freestyle, just five-hundreths of a second behind fourth place finisher Colin Hanna of Princeton. Sophomore Goksu Bicer also had a strong showing in his first individual event, tying for 6th in the 50-yard freestyle (20.72).
Yale's 400-yard relay team then delivered a strong, 4th place performance in that event, as the team of Dominski, senior Craig Steen, Bicer, and senior captain Tom Robinson finished in a time of 3:19.01.
The Elis will attempt a climb up the leaderboard Friday night when the action gets back underway at DeNunzio Pool on the campus of Princeton University.
