Let's start today's entries at Helfferich Hall in Collegeville for the 16th annual Centennial wrestling championship.

The quarterfinals are in the books and the only surprises were a couple of #3 seeds who went down in their opening match. Muhlenberg's Rob Kein fell to #6 seed Leo Dorman of Stevens, 2-1, at 149. Merchant Marine's Justin Diesel lost a 3-2 decision to McDaniel's Courtney Nightengale at 174.

Ursinus (17) has the early team lead over USMMA (12) with Johns Hopkins (9.5) in third place. The Bears have eight grapplers in the semis, while the Mariners have seven.

At the Kunkel Aquatic Center in Lancaster ... Gettysburg's Keira Heath led all qualifiers in the 400 IM with an NCAA B cut time of 4:37.61. Three women had B cut performances in the 100 fly - Swarthmore's Anne Miller (57.86) and Jennie Lewis (57.99), and Gettysburg's Sarah Andryauskas (58.07). Washington's Megan Morse had a B cut time of 1:55.52 in the 200 free, while F&M's Tom Grabiak (57.68) and Brittany McCabe (59.19) posted B cut times in the 100 breast and 100 back, respectively.
