NEW HAVEN, Conn.- At the team's year-end banquet on April 16, junior Andrew Heymann was announced as the captain of Yale men's swimming and diving for the 2014-2015 season. Heymann will be the 117th captain since the team's founding.
At the 2014 Ivy League Championships, Heymann broke his own Yale records in the 100 and 200-yard breaststroke events. He has won Yale's M. Davies Award for outstanding performance in breaststroke swimming for three consecutive years.
Senior Ed Becker, team captain for the 2013-2014 season, said that Heymann has won the respect of the teammates through his hard work at practice.
"Heymann has what it takes to lead this team to the next level," Becker said.
"He's always had a quiet intensity, and he sets the bar so high with how he attacks workouts. It's a constant drive not to be outworked that's really set him apart and it shows when he races."
