GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Four members of the North Dakota men's swimming and diving squad were named to the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Conference Team after the Fighting Sioux finished ninth at its first MPSF swimming and diving championships this past week. Freshman Andrew Germain, sophomore Adam Gannon, junior Richard Eberle, and sophomore David Flickinger each received second team honors.

Germain, a native of Blaine, Minn., earned his first MPSF honor on the 1-meter after finishing eighth with a score of 275.40 on day two. Earlier during the preliminary round, he hit a season-high mark of 277.25. He also placed 10th on the 3-meter (298-95) and 15th on the platform (214.10).

A native of Plymouth, Minn., Gannon nabbed his honor in the 100 breast after placing eighth with a time of 56.63. He also placed 12th in the 100 fly (49.34) and 17th in the 200 IM (1:52.80), and helped UND to a sixth-place finish in the 800 free relay (6:39.51), an eighth-place finish in the 200 free relay (1:22.37) and the 200 medley relay (1:31.20), and a ninth-place finish in the 400 free relay (3:02.96).

A junior from Fort Collins, Colo., Eberle scored a 314.90 in the preliminaries and a 279.20 in the finals on the 3-meter to place eighth and earn all-conference accolades. He also finished 10th on both the platform (270.80) and the 1-meter (286.35).

The only individual top 10 finisher for UND in the swim events on day four, Flickinger, a native of Moorhead, Minn., finished eighth in the 200 fly with a season-best time of 1:50.93 to garner MPSF honors. He also helped UND to a seventh-place finish in the 400 medley relay (3:25.32), and placed 18th in the 100 fly (50.42) and 24th in the 200 IM (1:56.82).
