Many Uris Pool records were broken on Saturday, but unfortunately for the Columbia men’s swimming and diving team, it was Harvard freshman Chuck Katis who was setting the new times. Katis won the men’s breaststroke in 55.18 seconds, the 200 breaststroke in 2:00.76, and the 200 individual medley relay in 1:48.56. The Light Blue (2-2, 1-2 Ivy) succumbed to the Crimson 206-92 in the final dual meet of the calendar year. Columbia started the meet strong, with junior Jason Collazo and freshman Micah Rembrandt placing second and third in the three-meter diving event. However, Harvard took control of the meet by winning the next three events. Freshman Omar Arafa closed the gap with a first-place finish in the 100-yard backstroke in 50.20. Harvard then showed why it has won 12 straight dual meets, with top-three finishes in six different events: the 1000 free, the 100 free, the 100 breast, the 200 breast, the 100 fly, and the 200 IM. For the Lions, freshmen Jeremie DeZwirek and David Jakl had strong meets, with DeZwirek winning the 200-yard backstroke in 1:48.19 and Jakl finishing third in the 200-yard backstroke and second in the 200-yard freestyle. The Lions return to the pool next on Sunday, Jan. 15 against the Bucknell Bison in Lewisburg, Pa.
