CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Yale men's swimming and diving team looks to move up the leaderboard Friday following a strong opening-day performance at the Ivy League Championships that left them in sixth overall. Sophomore Mike Dominski posted the best finish of the day for the Elis, a fifth-place showing in the 500-yard freestyle (4:27.90), good for an NCAA 'B' Cut.

The Bulldogs took fifth in the opening 200-yard freestyle relay, thanks to strong races from the 'A' relay corps of captain Kyle Veatch, junior Goksu Bicer, junior Matt Boone, and freshman Pat Killian (1:22.20). The Elis finished the day with a sixth-place finish in the 400-yard medley relay (3:19.54), just .04 seconds off the pace of fifth-place Brown. 

With 192 points through the first day of racing, Yale sits less than twenty points behind fifth-place Penn, a team they will look to eclipse when action continues Friday at Harvard.
