INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Mount Union senior Tyler Fry (Massillon/Washington) swam in the 200-yard backstroke where he placed 31st with a time of 1:52.31 in the preliminaries but did not qualify for the finals on Saturday, the last day of the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis.

On Thursday, Fry swam in the 200-yard freestyle where he swam a career best time of 1:45.22 and Friday saw Fry swim the 100-yard backstroke where he placed 23rd with a time of 50.20 but did not qualify for either final. 

The top 20 qualifiers in each event earned bids into the NCAA championship meet.

Once in the meet, each swimmer may compete in more optional events up to a maximum of three.

Fry is the first Mount Union male swimmer to compete in the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships since Tyler Moore swam back in 2015.

The top eight placers in each event earn All-America honors and placers 9-16 earn Honorable Mention All-America accolades.
