BOSTON, Mass. - After the first day at the Terrier Invitational, the Yale Bulldogs sit in fourth place with 169 points; the host Terriers (230) lead the way, followed closely by Boston College (229).

Yale's distance swimmers made a splash Friday, as Matt Lee took fourth overall (4:38.30) in the 500-yard freestyle, while Bulldog freshmen West Cuthbert (4:42.18) and Mikey Bogese (4:44.13) took sixth and seventh, respectively.

Captain Kyle Veatch took fifth in the 50-yard freestyle (21.38), and sophomore Jared Lovett was Yale's top finisher in the 200-yard IM, taking seventh overall (1:55.42). Yale's corps took fifth in the 200-yard medley relay (1:26.15), featuring a foursome of Veatch, freshman Pat Killian, senior Alex Gornitzky, and senior Matt Boone. Killian and Veatch then joined Mike Dominski and Chris Luu on the Bulldogs' 400-yard relay squad, which posted a time of 3:28.87, good for sixth in that event.

The three-day meet continues Saturday at Boston University.
