Junior Pete He (Mason) and sophomore Nolan Huey (Fort Collins, Colo./Fossil Ridge) posted three first place finishes each to lead the Ohio Northern mens swimming and diving team to a 172-89 dual meet victory over Wilmington on Friday evening.

The Polar Bears improve to 1-0 with the victory, while the Quakers fall to 0-1.

Huey claimed first place in the 200-meter free and 100 back in 2:05.20 and 1:01.28, respectively, before teaming up with juniors Justin Chapman (Springboro) and Thomas Golba (Dayton/Alter) and freshman Zach Ayres (Chillicothe) to win the 200 freestyle relay in 1:41.09.

In the 200 medley relay, Chapman teamed up with senior Ian Simpson (Strongsville), junior Anthony Ferrell (Canton/Glen Oak) and He to claim first place in 1:50.89.

Simpson would finish first in the 50 back in :28.24, while He posted two first place finishes in the 100 fly and 50 fly in 1:00.86 and :26.88, respectively.

In the 100 I.M., Ferrell took first place in 1:04.93.
