Curry Claims 100 Free Silver to Close Out SEC Championships

COLUMBIA, MO. – The LSU men’s swimming team closed out the 2021 SEC Championships with a bang as Brooks Curry brought him his third medal of the meet and set another school record. Along with Curry, David Boylan closed out the meet by swimming a career best time in the 200-Yard Butterfly.

“Overall there were obviously a great deal of highlights over the last four days,” said LSU head swim coach Dave Geyer. “When you rewrite the history book a little with school records or podium finishes it is something to hang your hat on but only for a few days. We have a very youthful team. I am proud of the small group of men we brought to the meet. I am excited for the postseason but I am also excited for next season as we continue to build something special.”
