Lennox Flies in the 100

If there was ever a race that teams could possibly gain some valuable points on the leaders, Princeton ... this was that race. This was because Princeton only had 1 person represented, whereas challengers Harvard and Cornell sported 3 and 2 racers, respectively.

But if I may steal a horse racing reference: you've gotta have a horse in the race if you want to win.

And Princeton had a horse. Not to mention a very fast one.

Doug Lennox ('09) outlasted the competition in the 100 Butterfly to take home 1st place and 32 vital points in the team competition with a time of 47.94. Although Harvard benefitted the most from the swim, after taking 2nd, 3rd and 6th places, it was Lennox's performance that was the most significant. He did what he needed to do in order to keep Princeton with the most points possible.
