The University of Michigan men's swimming and diving team moved to the cusp of its fourth straight Big Ten Championship with a dominating performance on Friday (Feb. 28) at Canham Natatorium. The Wolverines won three of the six swimming events, led by senior Kyle Whitaker's (Chesterton, Ind./Chesterton) third conference crown, this time in the 400-yard individual medley.

The Wolverines finished 1-2-4 in the 'A' final. Whitaker won the title with a pool-record time of 3:38.51, clocking the third-fastest time in U-M and Big Ten history. Sophomore Dylan Bosch (Johannesburg, South Africa/Crawford College, Sandton) was runner-up with a career-best time of 3:39.07 followed by senior Connor Jaeger (Fair Haven, N.J./Rumson-Fair Haven) in fourth place at 3:43.84. Freshman Cameron Stitt (Portland, Ore./Sunset) placed fourth in the 'B' Final and 12th overall with a personal-best time of 3:50.45.
