IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Notre Dame men’s swimming and diving team completed the opening round of competition in second place Friday at the Hawkeye Invitational at the University of Iowa Aquatic Center.

The No. 19 Fighting Irish finished the first wave of events with 205.5 team points to claim runner-up honors behind the defending meet champion and national No. 1 University of Michigan.

Junior All-American Frank Dyer was the first in the water for the Notre Dame 200 free relay team that earned second-place points. Dyer later posted an NCAA B-cut time of 4:20.63 in a runner-up effort in the 500 free.

Sophomore Zachary Stephens earned the second Fighting Irish B-cut of the day with a 1:48.02 swim in the 200 IM to tie Michigan’s John Wojciechowski for third place. Junior Colin Babcock rounded out the top-five with a time of 1:48.16, also good enough for an NCAA B-cut.

Day two of the Hawkeye Invitational is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. (ET) Saturday with preliminary heats. Event finals are slated to begin at 7 p.m.
