It is always important for teams to win at home and Wednesday night, Brandeis swimming capped off their home finale of the season with style, sweeping Clark University, 126-97 for the men and women walking away 131-107. It was a good send off for seven seniors participating in their final home match.

Brandeis men were led by captain Hal Grossman 07, who finished his last career match at Brandeis on a high note;

taking the 50 yard freestyle at a time of 22.8 seconds and the 200 yard butterfly at 2:03.69. Both events were 1-2-3 sweeps for Brandeis. Bobby Morse 09 demonstrated endurance with his victories in the 500 and 1000 yard freestyle and rookie Justin Wellins 10 won the 200 yard freestyle and the 200 yard backstroke.

On the womens side of the pool, Charlotte Rea 08 continued her fine season with victories in both her diving events and the 50 yard freestyle. Silver Deutch 07 finished off her final home meet with victories in the 500 and 1000 yard freestyle and rookie Dasha Hentoff 10 grabbed first place in the 200 yard individual medley and the 100 yard freestyle.
