EVANSTON, Ill. – The University of Notre Dame men’s swimming and diving team remained in striking distance at the conclusion of the first session Friday at the Northwestern Invitational inside the Norris Aquatic Center.

The Irish (7-1) lead Missouri State 56-54 after one day of competition. Notre Dame will enter the second day of races trailing host Northwestern by only point (55-54), and Iowa by three points (56-53), with more than half of the quad-dual meet remaining.

Junior All-American Frank Dyer posted a crucial race victory, clocking a time of 20.45 in the 50 free to narrowly edge Northwestern’s Matthew Margritier for the event gold. Dyer now owns the top seven times in the 50 free for Notre Dame this season.

Sophomore Nick Nemetz claimed another event win in the 1-meter dive, scoring a total of 316.35 points to pace the Irish during the diving portion of Friday’s session.

Day two of the Northwestern Invitational is scheduled to begin Saturday at 11 a.m. (ET). The meet’s third and final session is tentatively scheduled to commence at 6 p.m. (ET).
