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.
