OXFORD, Ohio -- Denison men's swimming and diving recorded nine NCAA 'B' cut times in route to 369 points and the overall lead at the end of day one of the 2017 Miami Invitational. Host Miami University sits in second place with 307 points, while Washington University-St. Louis has 280 points in third place.

Emory University (184) and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (147) rounded out the top five after the first of three days in Oxford.

The Big Red totaled two first-place finishes and three second-place finishes in the finals. In their first event, Kymani Senior, Zach Wagner, Matt McHugh and Kenny Fox posted a time of 1:21.33 to win the 200 freestyle relay.

DU followed with five top-10 finishes in the 500 freestyle, headlined by Stuart Hohm's 'B' cut time of 4:28.08. Matt Hedman clocked in with a 'B' cut time of 4:29.15 in the prelims before he logged a fourth-place finish in the finals. James Baker's 4:30.35 (5th place) and Mitch Williams' 4:32.20 (7th place) were not only 'B' cut times, but were both recorded as personal bests for the pair. Ben Burdick wrapped up the A final for Denison, finishing in eighth place with a 4:34.43.

The 200 IM saw another personal record broken as Bebe Wang bested his prelim 'B' cut time of 1:50.15 with another 'B' cut time and a P.R. of 1:48.87 in the finals for a second place finish. Ryan Stevenson finished less than two seconds behind Wang in third place with his own NCAA provisional qualifying time of 1:50.86.

Three of the top five swimmers in the 50 freestyle belonged to the Big Red as Wagner notched a personal-record 20.33 ('B' cut time) in second place and Senior followed in fourth place with his own career-best and 'B' cut time of 20.56. Fox's 20.68 put him in fifth with another 'B' cut time for the Big Red.

Denison finished the night with a win in the 400 medley relay as Wang, Fox, Wagner and Tiernan Foster-Smith clocked in at 3:15.47 to earn 42 team points and extend their lead at the end of day one.

The Big Red will return to the pool on Friday, Dec. 1 to start the second day of action with preliminaries 10:30 a.m.
