Winning seven of 11 events at the FAA Championships, Brunswick swam away with the league crown on Saturday. The title is the third for the Bruins in the four-year history of the event.
Brunswick won the first four events (200-medley relay, 200-freestyle, 200-IM and 50-freestyle) to take a lead on the field of FAA teams. Max Meissner highlighted the four straight wins with a personal-best time of 1:43.12 in the 200-freestyle.
The Bruins' Patchy Mullen followed Meissner with a win in the 200-IM (1:58.96), as teammate Alex Hazlett took first in the 50-freestyle (21.72).
Following a win by Hopkins in the one-meter diving event, Brunswick’s Lucas Hodgson (52.68) and Mullen (52.93) finished one-two in the 100-butterfly.
Hopkins picked up a victory in the 100-free, as Michael O’Malley was fourth and Danny Taylor was fifth.
Apostolides gave the Bruins a win in the 500-free (4:52.45) to add to Brunswick’s point total with four events remaining.
In the 200-free relay, the Brunswick quartet of Marcus Hodgson, Mullen, O'Malley and Meissner took first place (1:27.81), more than 4.5 seconds faster than second-place Hopkins.
Peter Michalik followed with a second-place result for the Bruins in the 100-backstroke (57.28).
In the final individual race, Meissner (58.37) and Marcus Hodgson (1:02.06) finished two-three for Brunswick in the 100-breaststroke.
A disqualification in the 400-freestyle relay kept the Bruins from winning an eighth overall race along with setting a new pool record.
Brunswick will complete its season at the NEPSAC Division I Championships at Hotchkiss on March 7-8.
