2010-11 Season - 2010-11 MEN'S SWIMMING REVIEW

Freshman Justin Reppy was named the MVP at the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin meet in 2011 after he won three events. He also set four individual school records during the 2010-11 season.

The Augustana men’s swimming team earned 246.50 and finished in fifth place at the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin Championship Meet for the second straight season.  Carthage outdistanced the field with 956 points with Wheaton placing second at 858.50 points.  Rose-Hulman finished third with 571 points and Illinois Wesleyan grabbed the fourth spot with 448 points.  Millikin took sixth with 150 points and North Central rounded out the field with 123 points.

Freshman Justin Reppy (Oswego HS, Oswego, Ill.) was honored as CCIW “Co- Male Swimmer of the Meet” after winning a pair of individual events at the conference meet.  He swam past the field in the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:40.40 and earned top honors in the 1650 freestyle with a clocking of 16:15.63.

Augustana also had several other top 10 finishes over the weekend.  Freshman Daniel Hinck (Harlem HS, Loves Park, Ill.) was sixth in the 500 freestyle (4:50.37) and eighth in the 200 freestyle (1:47.22).  Freshman Austin Zarbuck (Urbana HS, Urbana, Ill.) notched a couple eighth place performances in the 500 freestyle (4:53.24) and 1650 freestyle (17:09.91) races.  Sophomore Chris Greaves (Morris HS, Morris, Ill.) also turned in a seventh place showing in the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:06.15.

Reppy, Hinck, and Greaves also played an integral role in a trio of relays that brought home top-five finishes.  They combined with Zarbuck to place fourth in the 800 freestyle relay with a time of 7:05.28.  Junior Charles Vogt (Oak Park-River Forest HS, Oak Park, Ill.) joined the group to take fifth in the 200 freestyle relay (1:28.35).  Freshman Jasen Hengst (Bettendorf HS, Bettendorf, Iowa) was a part of the fifth place 400 medley relay team that hit the finish in a time of 3:45.04.

The Vikings opened the year with a second place finish at the four-team Illinois Wesleyan Halloween Invitational.  Hinck won the 100 freestyle and Reppy earned top honors in the 500 freestyle to lead the way for the Blue & Gold.  Greaves added a runner-up finish in the 200 backstroke.

The team cruised past Millikin 112-65 in the first dual meet of the year, winning eight of the 11 events.  Reppy, Hinck, Charles Vogt, sophomore Harrison Vogt (Oak Park-River Forest HS, Oak Park, Ill.), Hengst, and Zarbuck all won individual titles to lead the Vikings.  The positive momentum carried over to the next dual meet against Monmouth where the Vikings edged out a 97-96 victory with a win in the final relay race of the night.  The Vikings trailed by six points heading into the 200 freestyle relay, but Reppy, Charles Vogt, Greaves, and Hinck won the event to clinch the team victory.  Greaves won two individual events while Hinck and Zarbuck also grabbed individual titles.

Augustana finished third in the Illinois Wesleyan Invitational out of six teams and also took third at the Grinnell Invitational in a field of 11 squads in the final two invites of 2010.  The Vikings also dropped a dual match to Loras by a score of 118-86.  At Illinois Wesleyan, Hinck led the way with victories in the 50 freestyle and 200 freestyle.  Reppy turned around and won the 500 freestyle and 1650 freestyle events at Grinnell with Hinck taking second in the 500 race.  Greaves and Reppy also each won a pair of events in the dual meet against the Duhawks.

After training in Florida over the Winter Break, the team was back in the pool to begin 2011 and fell narrowly to Coe in a dual meet by a score of 104-101.  The Vikings won seven events on the day, but had a relay team disqualified in the final event.  Reppy, Greaves, Hengst, and Zarbuck were all individual winners against the Kohawks.  Augustana returned to Grinnell for another invitational full of strong competition, this time finishing fourth out of seven teams, helping to prepare the Blue & Gold for the CCIW meet to close out the season.
