SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – The Gold Team defeated the Green Team in the Cal Poly swimming and diving program's annual Green & Gold intrasquad meet on Saturday at Anderson Aquatic Center, 162-116.
Five points were awarded for first-place individual finishes, three for second place and one for third. Victorious relay teams tallied all seven points up for grabs.
Mickey Mackle led the Gold men by winning three events. The sophomore was first in the 100-yard backstroke (52.59 seconds), the 200 butterfly (2:01.37) and the 200 IM (1:55.3). Mackle also swam for the 200 medley relay team that won in 1:35.23.
Jimmy Deiparine, a junior, added two wins for the Gold, in the 100 breast (57.96 seconds) and 200 breast (2:09.13), and also contributed to the winning 200 free relay squad (1:26.56).
Adrian Brynnel more than did his part to keep the Green in contention, winning three events of his own. The senior claimed the 1,000 freestyle (9:51.10), the 200 free (1:41.46) and the 500 free (4:39.45).
The Green also had two freshmen win multiple events, as Caleb Davies finished first in the 50 free (21.79 seconds) and 100 free (48.10), and Paul Fischetti scored a 227.25 in 1-meter diving, along with a 266.85 in 3-meter.
Four women won two events each, however, to boost the Gold contingent to the overall victory.
Jill Jones, a senior, won the 50 free (at 24.54 seconds) and 100 free (53.3), and was a member of the triumphant 200 medley relay team (1:48.14) — as was fellow senior Amanda Maffris.

A third senior, Taylor Spivey, also chalked up a pair of wins, touching the wall before anyone else in the 1,000 free (10:40.26) and 500 free (5:13.36).
