Men's Swimming and Diving Wraps Up 2014 NCAA Championships


AUSTIN, Texas -- Harvard wrapped up the 2014 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships with a pair of top-30 finishes on Saturday, as Eric Ronda stole a 28th place finish in the 200 breaststroke and Griffin Schumacher, Jack Manchester, Jacob Luna and Danny Crigler took 27th in the 400 freestyle relay.

Ronda, making his first appearance in the NCAAs as a freshman, clocked in at 1:56.15 in his specialty event. He was just one of two Ivy League swimmers to race in both the 100 and 200 breast, joining Nejc Zupan of Dartmouth.

The quartet of Crimson claimed 27th with a combined relay time of 2:56.09. Crigler anchored the race for Harvard, his last wearing the Crimson cap. Harvard was the only school in the Ancient Eight to field relay teams in the 400 medley, 200 free, 400 free and 800 free relays.
