BOSTON, Mass. -- The Navy men’s swimming and diving team placed second and the women’s team from Navy placed sixth in the respective final standings at the ECAC Championship that wrapped up Sunday at Blodgett Pool on the Harvard campus in Boston.

Noah Martin (Fr., Phoenix, Ariz.) highlighted Navy’s efforts over the course of the three-day meet as he won the 500 freestyle and 1650 freestyle races.  Additionally, Sean Bagent (Sr., Norcross, Ga.), Ben Fry (Fr., Foxfield, Colo.), Dain Bomberger (So., Lititz, Pa.) and Danny Quinn (Sr., Queenstown, Md.) combined to win the 200 freestyle final for the Navy men’s team.

Recording second-place finishes for the Navy men’s squad were Bill Young (Fr., Arden, N.C.) and Billy Draves (So., Gilbetsville, Pa.).  Young was the runner-up in the 200 breaststroke, while Draves placed second in the 200 butterfly.  Draves also would finish in third place in the 100 fly, Bomberger finished third in the 50 free and Nathan Stinson (Fr., Nashville, Tenn.) took the bronze medal in the 200 freestyle.

Morgan Nassif (Fr., Laguna Hills, Calif.) and Ellen Bradford (Fr., Knoxville, Tenn.) were the top individual event finishers for the Navy women’s team.  Nassif finished in third place in the 1650 freestyle, while Bradford placed second in the 200 breaststroke and third in the 100 breaststroke.  Also, team captain Kellie Darmody (Sr., Charlotte, N.C.) finished in fourth place in the 100 butterfly.

“It was a good meet for us,” said Navy women’s swimming head coach John Morrison.  “We had a lot of strong swims with personal best times, which is what we were hoping to accomplish this weekend.  We also learned a lot and are anxious to be able to start applying that as we think about next season.”
