As the Aggies balance in limbo for the next few seasons, junior (Olympian) Cammile Adams won the 200 fly in 1:52.48: a new SEC Record, though not a Texas A&M School Record. As their first year in the conference, this is one of the handful of records that will stand like this for now, though with only a tenth to go to catch her swim from NCAA’s last year, it shouldn’t last too long.
The old record stood at 52.53, set by former Florida Gator Jemma Lowe in 2009.
This swim was a big psychological edge for the Aggies, as Adams and her teammate Caroline McElhany went 1-2, with the latter touching in 1:53.24. That means they both beat out fellow Olympic Trials finalist Kelsey Floyd from Tennessee, who was a 1:54.78. Floyd was among one of the few competitors for these top two spots at NCAA’s now that Katinka Hosszu is graduated. If Jasmine Tosky swims it, she could compete, perhaps an Amanda Nugent from West Virginia, but at least mentally, the Aggies will sit in a good place headed toward March.
