NEW HAVEN, Conn.- Yale's fate at the 2014 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships rests on the shoulders of one swimmer. Sophomore Brian Hogan is Yale's sole competitor at the championships this year, and the first since Alex Righi '09 swam three events at the meet in his senior year. Hogan will also swim three races; he will compete in the 200, 500 and 1,650-yard freestyle events. The Championships begin on Mar. 27 at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center in Austin, Texas.
Hogan is seeded 42nd in the 200-yard freestyle and 38th in the 500-yard freestyle. He finished second in the 500 at the Ivy League Championships behind Penn sophomore Christopher Swanson, whom he will race against this week in the 500 and the 1,650. He received first-team All-Ivy League honors in the 1,000-yard freestyle, but that event is not included in the NCAA Championships schedule.
