AKRON — Senior Logan Pfeifer (Bucyrus/Colonel Crawford) earned All-Conference honors in the 50 free to lead the Ohio Northern men on the first day of the 2017 Ohio Athletic Conference Swimming & Diving Championships on Thursday at the University of Akron's Ocasek Natatorium.

Pfeifer was second in the event in :21.08.

The top three finishers in each individual event and the top two relay teams earn All-Conference honors.

Freshman Nolan Huey (Fort Collins, Colo./Fossil Ridge) broke the school record in the 100 back, swimming a :51.59 in the opening leg of the 400 medley relay.

Huey, sophomore Anthony Ferrell (Canton/Glen Oak), sophomore Pete He (Mason) and Chen were second in 3:23.86.

The Polar Bears are gunning for their 13th consecutive OAC Championships crown under 13th-year head coach Peggy Ewald and are in second place out of seven teams through five of the 20 events.

John Carroll holds a slim 210-202 lead over ONU with Mount Union in third with 161 points and Wilmington fourth with 115 points.

Junior Ian Simpson (Strongsville) was fourth in the 50 free in :21.21.

ONU earned All-OAC accolades in the 200 free and 400 medley relay events.
