The 2019 Men’s Division I NCAA Championships got off to a raucous start Wednesday night with the 800 Free relay. Not only did Dean Farris swim the fastest time ever leading off for Harvard in an American Record 1:29.15, but the Texas men swam the fastest 800 Free relay ever, breaking all the records with a 6:05.08, and SwimSwam photographer Jack Spitser (spitserphotography.com) was on deck to catch all the action of the night.

I love the Dean Farris story! It proves that you don’t have to attend a swimming powerhouse school to find success. Many, many schools have produced top level swimmers – Dean Farris, Ally McHugh, Sydney Pickrem, Delaney Duncan, Kaersten Meitz, Erica Brown to just name a few. The swimmer is the most important part of the recipe of success, and when you’ve got it, you’ve got it! They can be developed at many different schools!

I would disagree with the statement Texas A&M and Tennessee aren’t swimming powerhouse schools. But yes, agree with the sentiment.

I tell young swimmers asking for advice on recruiting all the time: some people thrive as a small fish in a big pond, some thrive as a big fish in a small pond. Figure out which one of those things you are.
