Oxy Men Take Down Chapman

LOS ANGELES — The Occidental men's swimming and diving team finished its dual meet season with a blowout victory over Chapman at Taylor Pool on Saturday.

The Tigers improve to 4-4 on the season headed into the SCIAC Championships on Feb. 21.

"I'm happy with the way the men bounced back after a tough loss last week," Oxy head coach Steve Webb said. "We put together some of our best swims all season."

It was the last home meet for seniors Edward Dabsys, Ben Sappey, Elliot Davis and Dire Ezeh-Obloha. It was also the last swim meet at Taylor Pool with the new De Mandel Aquatic Center and Townsend Crosthwaite Pool due to be ready for next season.

Matthew Howard and Zeke Sebastian led Oxy with multiple individual wins, and Dion Holden won the 1-meter and 3-meter diving competitions.
