Following their heartbreaking DQ in last night’s 400 medley relay, the Cal Golden Bears redeemed themselves with a new NCAA Record in the 200 medley relay on day 3. The team of Kathleen Baker (back), Abbey Weitzeil (breast), Noemie Thomas (fly), and Farida Osman (free) put together a 1:34.10 to clip the former NCAA Record of 1:34.15 set by Stanford at the 2016 Pac-12 Championships.
|Team||50 Back Split||50 Breast Split||50 Fly Split||50 Free Split||Final Time|
|Cal (2017)||Kathleen Baker- 23.62||Abbey Weitzeil- 26.67||Noemie Thomas- 22.70||Farida Osman- 21.11||1:34.10|
|Stanford (2016)||Ally Howe- 23.62||Sarah Haase- 26.20||Janet Hu- 22.82||Lia Neal- 21.51||1:34.15|
Baker matched Howe’s backstroke split down to the hundredth, while Weitzeil was nearly a full second faster than she’s been all season to come with in a half second of Haase’s breast split. Thomas was slightly faster than Hu’s fly split, but the big difference maker was Osman, who anchored in a blistering 21.11.
