Gainesville, GA --- Men's Swimming competed at the 6th Annual Brenau Invitational November 18-19, 2016 at the Francis Meadows Aquatic Center, in Gainesville, GA. On Friday, day 1, the men came out strong breaking 3 school records and winning all 5 events contested in the first session. On Saturday, day 2, the men swam even faster, setting 8 more school records and winning 9 out of 13 events!

Head Swim Coach, Allen Gilchrest, commented; "After 2 days, 3 sessions, and 123 swims by 18 guys, our Emmanuel men finished 1st overall, won 13 out of 18 events, won all 5 relays, set 11 EC school records, and finished with 10 NCAA national qualifying times. I am truly humbled by how much God has blessed our team this season; and how hard our guys are working in the pool and the classroom, as a team, I am so proud of them. GO LIONS!"
