2012-13 MEN'S SWIMMING & DIVING SEASON REVIEW

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 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 and Josh Wielenga and freshman David Sommers 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.

Freshman David Sommers eclipsed his own 200 backstroke school record twice on Saturday, February 16 at the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin Championships in Wheaton, Illinois and the 400 freestyle relay also set a new school standard. Those performances helped secure a fourth place team finish for head coach Scott Johannsen's Augustana Vikings with 485 points.

Sophomore Aaron Holt led off a school-record performance by the Augustana 200 medley relay team Friday at the CCIW Championships. That was one of three school standards that fell on the men's side, as junior Justin Reppy broke the 200 freestyle mark and anchored a record-setting effort in the 800 freestyle relay. The Vikings remain in fourth place heading into Saturday's third and final day of swimming competition.
