ROW 1: Tom Kobylinski, George Goettleman, Brian Sheumaker. ROW 2: Kent Clulow (coa~h), Dan Murphy, Dan Graesser, Jon Nash, Billy Draves (captain).
registered first placed in the Geneseo meet. Dan Graessar (200 fly) and Jon Nash (200 fly) swam to their season bests as did Kobylinski in the 100 free. Sheumaker took a first in the one meter optional diving against Oswego and Draves another first in the 1000 free for State's only two blue ribbon performances against the Lakers. Draves in his third straight victory (1000 free) and Nash in the 200 individual and 200 fly were the only winners in the Canisius meet as diver Sheumaker did not enter his specialty. The remaining members of the team (down from an original 15 to the current 7 swimmers) are to be commended for the perseverance and effort shown to Coach Clulow - no one could accuse this close contingent of "floating" to the finish!
Before Coach Clulow whistles "Everyone out of the pool!" the squad will continue being the good sportsmen that they're respected for. Strong performances by Bill Draves (1000 free), Tom Kobylinski (50 free, 100 free) and Brian Sheumaker (1 meter and 3 meter diving) all
When you cut down a numerically– weakened team to the bare bone with additional personnel losses, it obviously becomes increasingly difficult to win. Thus are the trials and tribulations of the Bengal swimmers again this year. Coach Kent Clulow's efforts have been in vain when examining the won-lost ledger. A season-opening loss to Guelph (88-23) was followed in quick succession by losses to Nazareth (83- 25), Grove City (66-38), and R.I.T. (77 -23). The winter recess appeared to have helped somewhat as the loss to SUNY Buffalo (53-46) saw the Bengals scoring the most points of their young season. The Oswego meet postponed because of ice and blowing snow was later met only by defeat (62-36) along with Canisius (61-40).
