Collin Purrman - Men's Swimming & Diving

Senior Collin Purrman of the Iona College men's swimming & diving program had a successful weekend for the Maroon & Gold.  He won the 200-butterfly in 1:57.39 against Pace on Friday, Jan. 13.

Purrman followed it up on Sunday against Delaware with three individual victories, among which was a resetting of his own school record.  In the 100-yard IM, Purrman touched the final wall in 54.69, lowering his own landmark time.  He followed it up with wins in the 100 and 200 butterfly races with respective times of 53.00 and 1:56.06.

Iona defeated Pace in emphatic fashion, 188-91, but fell to the Blue Hens on Sunday, 114-170.  The Gaels are now 6-3 on the season.  

The Gaels return to the pool on Friday, Jan. 20 against MAAC rival Fairfield in Fairfield, CT.  There are just three meets until the MAAC Championships in Buffalo, NY.
