HOLLAND, Mich. -- Grove City College freshman Caleb Courage (Shippensburg, Pa./Shippensburg) placed fourth in the 100 free Saturday night at the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships with a time of 45.85 seconds. By placing fourth, Courage earns his second career All-America honor.

Friday night, Courage became Grove City's 46th all-time men's swimming and diving All-American with a 15th-place finish in the 200 free.

Courage entered Saturday night's finals as the second seed after posting a time of 45.62 seconds in the preliminaries. Union College senior Elliot Seguin won the 100 free with a time of 45.32.

Grove City junior Ben Haring (Kenai, Alaska/Kenai Central) placed 41st in the 100 free preliminaries Saturday.

Thursday night, Haring became the first Grove City swimmer to earn All-America honors in the 50 free since Skip Arbuckle in 1971.
