LEWISBURG, Pa. – A pair of Bucknell swimmers, senior captain Chris Devlin and incoming freshman Maggie Wyngowski, excelled against high-level competition this summer.

Wyngowski enjoyed a standout performance at the USA Swimming Futures Championships, held August 3-6 in Geneva, Ohio. The Niskayuna, N.Y. native won the 200 breaststroke (2:36.34), 200 IM (2:19.90) and 400 IM (4:53.45).

Wyngowski's time in the 400 IM met the qualifying standard for U.S. Senior National events and was nearly two seconds faster than the second-place finisher.

“Maggie had a very successful summer, and we're excited have her join us this year,” said Bison head swimming & diving coach Dan Schinnerer. “Her time in the 400 IM at Futures would have qualified her for the 2016 Olympic trials so that's a very big accomplishment.”

Devlin raced in the 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke at the U.S. Open Swimming Championships, which took place August 2-6 in East Meadow, N.Y. The Dresher, Pa. native qualified for the 200 backstroke's ‘C’ final and ultimately finished 21st with a time of 2:03.11.

“The U.S. Open features some great competition, and Chris did a very good job in both his events,” Schinnerer said. “This summer, he balanced interning at PNC Equipment Finance in Philadelphia with his training, and it was great to see him make time for both. He’s certainly set himself up for a great senior year.”

The Bison swimming & diving teams open the 2017-18 campaign by hosting UMBC on Saturday, Sept. 30 at 1 p.m.
