WEBSTER– The RIT men's swimming and diving team placed seventh out of 13 teams at the 2011 UNYSCSA/Empire 8 Championships, held at the Webster Aquatic Center last weekend. RIT finished with 550 points, while Ithaca won with 1,325 points.

Senior Evan Wendt (Norwich/Norwich High School) broke a five-year-old school record in the one-meter diving to win the event on Thursday, and broke a four-year record to win the three-meter event on Saturday.

Wendt, who will compete at the 2011 NCAA Championships next month, won the one-meter event with a score of 489.70 points, breaking a school record set nearly five years ago to the day by former All-American Quinn Donahoe by just over 11 points. In the prelims of the three-meter, Wendt broke a 21-year old UNYSCSA record by scoring 555.70 points. He recorded 526.65 points in the final to easily win the event and break the school record by 16 points.
