Lehmann Turns in Second All-America Performance of 2016 Championships

Greensboro, N.C. - DePauw senior doubled up on his all-America honors tonight as he finished fourth in the 100-yard butterfly on the second day of the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships.

Lehmann touched in 48.13 seconds after swimming 48.63 in the prelims to finish sixth. Coupled with yesterday's eighth-place showing in the 50 free, Lehmann is the first swimmer in men's program history to post two top-eight finishes in the same Championship and his fourth-place finish is the best by any DePauw individual in NCAA Championship competition.

He also led off the morning's first relay and was joined by Alex Grissom, Adam Pircon and Kurt Swieter for a 20th-place finish in the 200 free relay in 1:24.52. 

The Tigers' 400 medley relay of Swieter, Mitchell Davis, Grissom and Pircon was 20th in 3:30.22.

A pair of Tigers competed in the 200 free with Grissom placing 19th in 1:39.88 and Swieter finishing 37th in 1:41.34.

With 29 points, the Tigers are in 15th place at the midway point of the Championships. DePauw is back in action tomorrow with prelims starting at 10 a.m.
