2009-10 Season - 2003-04 MEN'S SWIMMING REVIEW

2003-04 MEN’S SWIMMING REVIEW

 

Matt Simcock leads the way once again as Vikings finish year with 3-4 dual meet record and fifth place finish in College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin

 

Senior sprint freestyle specialist Matt Simcock (Naperville Central HS, Naperville, IL) wrapped a fine career at Augustana College with his name sprinkled liberally throughout the school’s record book. Simcock, who won the 50 freestyle in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin as a sophomore, helped lead head coach Gary Ackerson’s team to a 3-4 dual meet record and a fifth place finish in the league.

 

During the course of the year the Vikings won the Augustana Invitational, took third in the North Central Invitational and had fifth place finishes in the Illinois Wesleyan and Grinnell Invitationals.

 

Through it all, Simcock was consistently the top scorer on the team. He finished the year with the best individual time in four events: 50 freestyle (:21.46), 100 freestyle (:47.21), 100 backstroke (:56.68) and 100 breaststroke (1:01.03). In addition he swam on four relay teams that ended up with the teams best times: 200 freestyle (1:27.56), 400 freestyle (3:12.97), 200 medley (1:39.84) and 400 medley (3:40.50).

 

When he graduates in May he leaves as the school record holder in three individual events and three relays. He set school marks in the 50 freestyle (:21.01), 100 freestyle (:46.86) and 100 backstroke (:53.59) during his junior year. As a sophomore he was a member of the 200 medley relay team that set a school record of 1:39.12 and as a junior he part of the 200 freestyle relay (1:25.35) and 400 freestyle relay (3:11.64) units that now hold school marks.

 

The Vikings wrapped up the 2003-04 men’s swimming season with a fifth place finish in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin championship meet. Wheaton won the title for the eighth straight time with 602 points. Carthage (584.5), Millikin (283.5) and Illinois Wesleyan (283) preceded the Vikings, who scored 190 points, in the standings. North Central occupied sixth place with 150 points.

 

Augustana scored most of its points in the relays, placing third in the 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle, fourth in the 400 medley and 200 medley and fifth in the 800 freestyle. The 200 freestyle relay team (third place) swam a time of 1:27.56 and its members were Ryan Kinslow (Niles West HS, Skokie, IL), Troy Munson (Sterling HS, Sterling, IL), Carl Jannusch (Maine West HS, Des Plaines, IL) and Simcock. In the 400 freestyle relay (also third) it was the same exact team clocking a time of 3:14.28. The 400 medley unit of Simcock, Ken Goebel (Naperville Central HS, Naperville, IL), Kinslow and Munson took fourth in 3:40.50 and the 200 medley relay was fourth in 1:39.84. The members of the 200 medley were Nathan Olson (Muscatine HS, Muscatine, IA), Goebel, Kinslow and Simcock. The 800 freestyle relay that placed fifth in 7:35.49 had Munson, Craig Hanus (Jacobs HS, Poplar Grove, IL), Olson and Jannusch.

 

Simcock was the top individual for the Vikings, taking third in the 50 freestyle in :21.64, fifth in the 100 freestyle in :47.50 and ninth in the 100 breaststroke in 1:01.18. Kinslow placed eighth in the 50 freestyle (:22.22), eighth in the 100 butterfly (:51.76) and eighth in the 100 freestyle (:48.93). Jannusch took eighth in the 200 freestyle in 1:50.15. Goebel was 10th in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:03.13 and 11th in the 200 breaststroke in 2:17.91. Olson was 10th in the 100 backstroke (:58.90) and 12th in the 200 backstroke (2:10.30). Eric Moldenhauer (Springfield Southeast HS, Springfield, IL) took 12th in the 1,650 freestyle in 19:36.97.
