@AU_SwimDive Hosts Senior Night on Friday

Scott Callander swims the butterfly.

WASHINGTON – The American University swimming and diving teams play host to Howard and Manhattan on Friday at 6 p.m. and will pay tribute to their three seniors in a pre-meet ceremony.

In a scheduling quirk, the meet will be the last home event on the regular-season schedule for the Eagles. They will honor Scott Callander, Sam Fromkin and Rohan Singh as members of the swimming senior class.


Scott Callander now owns the Frailey Pool and school records in the 100-yard butterfly, going 48.49 a year ago. The school record had stood for 20 years. For the past couple seasons, Callander has led the AU men in individual points at the Patriot League Championships.

Sam Fromkin finished 15th in the 200 backstroke at the PL Championships in 2017 and posted a pair of top-20 finishes at last year's league meet. He ranks among the all-time top-16 at AU in the 400 individual medley (4:07.54).

• Rohan Singh distinguished himself as one of AU's top student-athletes in the entire department. Last spring, he earned the award as the senior male with the top GPA regardless of sport. A distance freestyler, Singh carries a 3.86 GPA in international studies.


American steps away from competition for a couple weeks before competing on Saturday, Nov. 3 at Bucknell in a quad meet with the Bison, Lafayette and Navy. The Eagles will then taper their training regimen in preparation for the Patriot Invitational at George Mason on Nov. 15 through 17.
