The William & Mary men’s swimming won 10 of 11 events Saturday, breezing past VMI on the road, 150-55.  The Tribe improved to 6-1 on the year for the third time in the last five years, while the Keydets fell to 1-3 overall.W&M swam a lot of depth-events in the meet, with only a few men swimming races in their top three.  Despite that, the Tribe put up a very strong performance with 10 wins and seven more silver-medal showings.  Leading the way was senior Conrad Zamparello (Midlothian, Va.), who won both of his events to rank as the Tribe’s top scorers.  First up, he won the 1,000 free in 9:52.48, then came back at the very end of the meet to win the 200 breast in 2:12.72.  Sophomore Colin Wright (Williamsburg, Va.) only swam one individual event, collecting a win in the 100 IM at 54.03, but he also played a part in both of W&M’s relay victories.  At the start of the meet, he combined with Philip Barto (Midlothian, Va.), Wyatt Grubb (Mechanicsville, Va.), and Devin McNulty (Herndon, Va.) to win the 400 medley relay in 3:33.97.  Then, in the final event of the day, Wright, Eric Grimes (Louisville, Ky.), Jack Doherty (Middletown, Conn.), and Kyle Neri (Wallingford, Conn.) teams up to swim 1:25.06 in the 200 free relay.In between the two relays, individual wins also went to Neri, timing 1:43.43 in the 200 free, as well as McNulty, who won the 50 free in 22.06 seconds.  Doherty doubled his usual workload to win the 200 fly, touching the wall in 2:01.65.  Freshman Aristedes Speres (Rye, N.Y.) won the 100 free by a tough in 48.38 seconds, and classmate Jake Kealy (Wilton, Conn.) stepped away from his usual haunt of the 200 back to instead swim and win the 500 free, stopping the clock in 4:42.63.Event Winners
