    200 Medley Relay - Nice freestyle anchor!

    3 Florida 1:22.94 - 1:23.24 q579
    1) r:+0.63 Michael Taylor FR 21.63
    2) r:0.19 Chandler Bray SO (23.86) 45.49
    3) r:0.20 Mark Szaranek SR (20.45) 1:05.94
    4) r:0.14 Caeleb Dressel SR (17.30) 1:23.24


    Between the 50 and 200 free records - a sub :40 100 will make this quite the championships. ...Must be really amazing to see these swims in person.

    ...and Dressel goes a :42.8 in the 100 fly - taking it out under:20 - That's just nuts.

    :49.69 in the 100 Breast to break the 50 second barrier and the kid is junior and will be back next year. So Dressel lost a record.

    That was another jaw dropper.

    So was this. Three days after the record was set - another sub 1:30.

    1 Townley Haas JR Texas 1:31.78 1:29.50N 194 20
    r:+0.72 20.64 43.12 (22.48)
    1:06.18 (23.06) 1:29.50 (23.32)

    This meet might come down to the last relay... after diving, Texas is 6 up/4 down/2 milers, Indiana 4 up/3 down, Cal 6 up/1 down/2 milers.

    Indiana's lack of depth might come back to bite them but they have a 20 point cushion. Texas might have locked it up more or less with a better 200 fly performance but they underperformed there and Cal was lights out.

    NC St has 4 up/2 down and the top seed in the mile but that's not enough to make up their deficit, and Florida has just 3 up and some fringe milers. Three team race now.
    400 IMer/200 backstroker in another life, now sprinter/breaststroker... Yeah, I don't know how that happened either!

    I read the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and my local news"paper" pretty much every day. Every men's and women's "March Madness" basketball game gets at least a sentence in the sports section, yet none of these news outlets has had one word about this phenomenal meet.

    The LA Times had two sentences about USC's winning relay...that's it! Didn't even identify the meet as the NCAA Championships. Sad...

    Yes, their depth might hurt them, but it is nothing short of amazing to think that Indiana is so close in the hunt with, I think, only 8 swimmers and 1 diver. Their points per person ratio is off the charts. Gotta believe this is going to be huge for their recruiting. Between how their men are swimming here, how well Lily King and their women did, and how well Zane Grothe is doing in their post-grad program, you know their recruiting efforts will yield more in the future.

    I did see a note in the ticker tape on ESPN that Texas had won the meet on Sunday Morning but that was about it.

    They are definitely a team on the rise - although losing Pieroni and Khalafalla plus Hixon from diving will be pretty big shoes to replace.

    They do have a good recruiting class coming in, 47.9/1:46 flyer, 4:19/14:35 and 4:25/15:05 distance guys, 20.1 and 19.7/43.4 sprinters.

    That's not enough to keep up with Texas or Florida or Stanford's monster recruiting classes (though Florida is losing almost everything).

    Impressive for Texas to pull off the win despite not being in the top three in any relay. Texas was lucky it's swimming AND diving!

    My former teammate Abrahm DeVine had a dominant swim to win the 400 IM.

    thanks!
    that kinda explains the 500/400im results but while their 1650 guys were barely off...they were still off
    such brutally tough results

    as an example: 5th place from 2016 olympic trails in 400im got to watch the night swim of it at ncaa's this year with his best yds time.

    The swimming was berzerk and kicked off by the fellow on the 10 meter tower who, at the beginning of the meet, played the stars spangled banner...trumpet..and then did a full gainer tuxedo and all....😎

    I remember back when I was an age group - maybe 13 years old so 16 years ago? - I was at a meet in Minnesota and somebody did that. My mother took a lot of pictures. I wonder if it was the same guy.

    8 individual swimmers - Pieroni, Finnerty, Lanza, Blaskovic, Khalafalla, Brock, Samy, Fantoni. They swam Romany as a relay-only guy in the 200 FR but I think that was the only relay-only guy they used.

    For comparison, Cal had 17, Texas 15, Florida 14, NC State 12.
