Kontopanos, Bryan McCarthy Help R-MC Men's Swimming Top Randolph

Start of 400 Free Relay

ASHLAND, Va. - Senior captain Bryan McCarthy (Chester, Va./Thomas Dale) and sophomore Victor Kontopanos (North Chesterfield, Va./Home School) both contributed to three event victories as the Randolph-Macon men's swimming team defeated Randolph 113-63 in ODAC action on Saturday afternoon.

How It Happened

  • Kontopanos and McCarthy teamed with freshmen Joe Stephens (Fredericksburg, Va./Stafford) and Shane Morison (Manassas, Va./Osbourn Park) to win the meet's first event, the 400 Medley Relay, in 3:42.69.
  • Kontopanos won a pair of individual events. He finished first in the 200 Free in 1:48.71 and won the 200 Fly in 2:03.64. Both were top times this season for Kontopanos.
  • McCarthy took top honors in the 100 Free in 50.09, a top time for the season. McCarthy had the most thrilling moment of the meet, swimming the final leg of the 400 Free Relay. After freshman Justin Gregory (Bristow, Va./Brentsville), freshman Andy McCarthy (Hampton, Va./Hampton) and sophomore Andrew Carr (Chestertown, Md./Kent County) swam the first three legs, Bryan McCarthy touched three-tenths of the second ahead of the second-place Wildcats to give the win to the Yellow Jackets.
  • Stephens won the 200 Back in 2:09.83. He was fourth in the 50 Free in 23.72. Both were top times for the season for Stephens.
