Tankers Lose Openers
To Mackenzie, Cody
Western's Tankers opened  their season with two losses to Mackenzie and Cody. 
On Jan. 7, Western was host to the Mackenzie Stags. Mackenzie took seven firsts to Western's four, winning the meet 61-44. David Sahagian was a double winner in the 400-yard freestyle in 4:44.3 and the 100-yard butterfly in 1:06.5
Taking first places were David Christie, 50-yard freestyle, and John Hopper, diving.  Second places for the team were taken by Anthony Gramer, 50-yard freestyle, Junab Ali, 100-yard breaststroke, and Dennis Wagner, individual medley.

    Although Western tried hard to win with three first and six second places in their second meet, they were overcome by Cody's eight first and five second places. Cody won the meet with a 67-38 score. Mark Manrique was the only member of the team to take a
 double first.  He won the 200- yard freestyle in 2:00.2 and the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:10.8.  David Sahagian captured the 100-yard butterfly.  Second places for the Tankers went to David Christie, Dennis Wagner, David Sahagian, and the two relay teams.
Sahagian, a 10B, who just came to Western this semester, has picked up many medals and ribbons at various meets through- out the country.  He is among the top prospects for the Tankers in the '65 season.  Swimming for four years with the Patton Aquatic Club, David swims an average of 3-1/2 hours a day.  During the summer he was coached by Harry Hauck. One of the highlights of his career was taking part in the Junior Nationals at Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.  He swam in the four-mile open against 25 contestants.
David Sahagian, one of the Tankers top prospects, swims his way to a first place in the Mackenzie meet.
