Despite a pair of event victories on Friday evening, the Valparaiso men’s swimming and diving team dropped a 118-74 decision to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in Green Bay, Wis.

Austin Hunter (La Crescent, Minn./La Crescent H.S.) earned a win in the 50 freestyle with a time of 22.57 seconds, posting a .26 second triumph for the Brown and Gold.

David Sivak (Hobart, Ind./Hobart H.S.) also earned a victory on Friday night, cruising to a five-and-a-half second triumph in the 200 individual medley.  The junior touched the wall in 1:59.52.

Blake Edwards (Orange, Calif./Lutheran H.S. of Orange County) added a pair of top-three finished on the day as well.  The lone senior on the squad finished second in the 1000 free with a time of 10:21.27 while posting the third fastest time of the day in the 100 free with a mark of 50.63 seconds.

Valparaiso (0-5) will conclude its trip in the state of Wisconsin on Saturday morning, taking on Milwaukee.  The first race begins at 10 a.m.
