Rathgeber Owns Pool Record in 200 Back

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the first candidate for Swimmer of the Meet:

Geoff Rathgeber ('07, Harvard).

Ho-hum, another race ... another record. Just another day at the office.

Rathgeber led from the onset and was never troubled by the competition as he cruised to yet another victory at the EISL meet, lowering the pool record held by former Harvard swimmer, David Cromwell ('06), from 1:44.20 to 1:43.54.

Kevin Mukri ('07, Navy) was Rathgeber's closest competition, swimming a very respectable 1:45.62.

With the win, Harvard has begun to close the gap considerably with Princeton and now is within striking distance for the overall championship.
