Badgers men's swim team in fourth place after first day of Big Ten championships

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Two relay squads helped the University of Wisconsin get off to a solid start at the Big Ten Conference swimming and diving championships Wednesday.

Junior Matt Novinski joined seniors Cameron Tysoe, Griffin Back and Niko Stines to finish fourth in the 800-yard freestyle relay with a time of 6 minutes, 19.34 seconds — nearly 10 seconds faster than their entry time.

In the 200 medley relay, Novinski, sophomore Eli Fouts, junior MJ Mao and senior Kevin Braun raced a school-record 1:25.38 to finish sixth. Indiana won in 1:23.07, establishing the nation's fastest time this year.
