COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The No. 25 Washington men's swim team dropped to the Air Force Academy, 123-113 this evening. Fielding no diving program hurt Washington as it resulted in a 35-point swing in Air Force's advantage.
The Huskies won seven of the 13 events, led by double-winners Luke Ekhoff. (Portland, Wash.) and Jim Wolfe (Hillsboro, Ore.). Ekhoff won the 200 IM (1:55.13) and 200 breaststroke (2:08.96), while Wolfe posted victories in the 200 (1:44.55) and 500 freestyle (4:48.52) races.
Derek Rose Forest Grove, Ore.) was also an individual winner for Washington, posting a first place finish in the 100 freestyle with a time of 46.30.
The Huskies relay teams had solid showings, winning both the 400 medley (3:23.60) and freestyle relays (3:10.15). The medley relay team included Rose, Phil Davis (Columbus, Ohio), Justin Adrian (Bremerton, Wash.) and Wolfe, while the freestyle relay team included Rose, Cameron Barclift (Olympia, Wash.), Garrett McCaffrey (Federal Way, Wash.) and Ekhoff.
The Washington men return to action January 10, when they take on BYU in Provo, Utah. The women's next competition will take place on January 11 against Utah in Provo.
