2012-13 MEN'S SWIMMING & DIVING SEASON REVIEW

Junior Justin Reppy won a pair of individual College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin championships and broke three individual school records during the 2012-13 men's swimming & diving season. He also swam on two school record relay teams.

Viking men finish 5-1 in dual meets and fourth at CCIW Championships; Justin Reppy a double conference champion; five individual and three relay school records fall

After three straight fifth-place finishes at the CCIW Swimming & Diving Championships, Coach Scott Johannsen's men's team jumped a spot to fourth in the league this year. Junior Justin Reppy (Oswego HS, Oswego, Ill.) led the way, winning both the 200 (1:42.75) and 500 (4:35.27) freestyles in school-record times. He joined sophomores Aaron Holt (Mt. Vernon HS, Mt. Vernon, Ill.) and Josh Wielenga (School of Environmental Studies, Apple Valley, Minn.) and freshman David Sommers (Westlake HS, Thousand Oaks, Calif.) in earning all-conference honors. Reppy's were just two of five individual Augustana standards that were surpassed this season. This year's Vikings also took down three relay records on their way to a 5-1 dual-meet mark and the championship at Illinois Wesleyan's Halloween Invitational.  

Reppy also set a school record with a 9:45.23 in the 1000 freestyle and swam on two of the three record-setting relays. He teamed with Holt, sophomore Michael Duy (Marmion Academy, Aurora, Ill.) and junior Daniel Hinck (Harlem HS, Loves Park, Ill.) to set an Augustana standard with a 3:11.28 in the 400 freestyle relay. In addition, he anchored the school-record 800 freestyle relay (7:00.56), joining Hinck, Duy and Sommers.  

Holt, in the 100 backstroke (:52.05) and Sommers, in the 200 butterfly (1:53.26), broke individual school marks as well. The pair also joined Hinck and freshman Felipe Hernandez (United Township HS, East Moline, Ill.) on the record-setting 200 medley relay which logged a time of 1:36.16.  

The 2012-13 season opened with a win at Illinois Wesleyan's three-team Halloween Invitational. The Vikings bested the hosts and Millikin behind individual wins by Wielenga (one-meter diving), Hinck (200 freestyle), Sommers (200 butterfly), Fernandez (200 backstroke) and Duy (500 freestyle), as well as six relay wins.  

A 162-63 dual meet victory over Monmouth was followed by at trip back to Illinois Wesleyan for the IWU Invitational. Holt won the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke and Hinck claimed the 200 freestyle, but the Vikings were edged out for the team title by Washington University. Augustana compiled 134 points, just one behind the Bears and well ahead of third-place IWU's 71.  

Holt picked up a win in the 100 backstroke as the Vikings finished third among 10 teams at Grinnell's Pioneer Classic.  

Augustana closed the 2012 portion of its schedule with a 158-73 dual meet win over Loras at Carver Pool and opened 2013 by beating Coe (183-29) on the road and Luther (139-84) at home.  

Then, it was back to Iowa for the seven-team Grinnell Invitational. The Vikings finished third, behind powerful Grinnell and Gustavus Adolphus units. Holt (100 butterfly) and Reppy (1650 freestyle) claimed individual wins for Johannsen's crew.  

A pair of dual competitions in Monmouth, Illinois preceded the CCIW meet. The Vikings defeated Monmouth 90-39, but suffered their only dual loss of the season, 76-51 to Division I Western Illinois.  

Nine Vikings recorded top ten performances in a total of 19 events this year. In addition to his three new school records, Reppy now ranks seventh in school history with a 100 butterfly best of :53.30. Along with his 100 backstroke record, Holt moved to second with a :21.49  in the 50 freestyle and third with a :47.43 in the 100 freestyle. Sommers and Fernandez each cracked three top ten's as well. Sommers now ranks second in both the 500 freestyle (4:45.03) and 100 butterfly (:50.99) in addition to his school-record 200 butterfly. Fernandez is fourth in the 200 backstroke (1:58.94) and ninth in both the 100 backstroke (:55.83) and 200 individual medley (2:01.33).  

Freshmen Kyle Johnson (Shadow Mountain HS, Phoenix, Ariz.) and Adam Bernardi (Boylan Catholic HS, Belvidere, Ill.) delivered top ten performances in two events each. Johnson in the 100 (5th at :54.68) and 200 (8th at 2:01.20) backstrokes and Bernardi in the 200 (2:00.56) and 400 (4:19.50) individual medleys. Senior Christopher Greaves (Morris HS, Morris, Ill.) swam a 2:00.85 200 backstroke (6th). Duy now  ranks third with a 4:45.23 in the 500 freestyle and Hinck's :21.91 in the 50 freestyle ranks seventh.
