2022 Ivy League Men’s Championships: Day 2 Finals Live Recap

2022 Men’s Ivy League Swimming & Diving Championships

Harvard holds an 18-point lead over Princeton as we head into Day 2 finals at the 2022 Men’s Ivy League Championships. Several meet records could be in danger, including the 200 IM, where Princeton’s Raunak Khosla broke the pool record in prelims, and the 50 free, where Harvard’s Dean Farris has been as fast at 18.92 in 2019.

Men’s 500 Freestyle – Finals

  • Ivy Meet Record: 4:13.34 – Brennan Novak, Harvard (2018)
  • Pool Record: 4:13.34 – Brennan Novak, Harvard (2018)
  • NCAA A Standard: 4:11.62
  • NCAA B Standard: 4:23.34

Podium:

  1. Dylan Porges, Princeton – 4:17.84
  2. Nicholas Lim, Princeton – 4:18.46
  3. Shane Washart, Harvard – 4:19.84
  4. Cole Kuster, Harvard – 4:20.64

  6. John Ehling, Princeton – 4:21.86
  7. Nicolas Ortega, Brown – 4:22.38
  8. Peyton Werner, Princeton – 4:24.10

Princeton’s Dylan Porges dropped 2.6 seconds from his prelims time to win the 500 free with a dominant 4:17.84. Brown’s Nicolas Ortega jumped out to an early start, leading the field by half a second at the 100 wall, but he quickly faded to the back of the pack over the next 100 yards.

In lane 4, Shane Washart of Harvard took over the lead at the 150, followed by teammate Cole Kuster, with Porges about a half-body back in lane 2. Porges began his descent at the 200 and took over the lead at the 250. As he continued to build his lead, teammate Nicholas Lim joined him toward the front of the pack. Lim got past Washart and Kuster at the 350 and held on for second place with 4:18.46. Washart (4:19.84), coming home with a pair of 25.7s, held off Kuster (4:20.64) for third.

Brown’s Lukas Scheidl (4:21.07) passed Princeton’s John Ehling (4:21.86) over the final 100 yards to take fifth. That’s a new Brown school record for Scheidl. Ortega (4:22.38) and Peyton Werner of Princeton (4:24.10) rounded out the final.

The fastest swim of the night, though, came out of the B final in which Yale’s Noah Millard cracked a 4:16.88. A 4:22.50 in prelims left him relegated to the B heat, but he dropped almost 6 seconds in finals. Millard had come into the meet as the top seed in this event with 4:18.99.

Men’s 200 Individual Medley – Finals

  • Ivy Meet Record: 1:42.80, R. Khosla, Princeton (2019)(2019)

Defending champion and Ivy League record-holder Raunak Khosla broke the Ivy League, championship meet, pool, and Princeton program records with a dominant 1:41.88 in the final of the 200 individual medley.

Princeton’s Tyler Hong and Harvard’s Jacob Johnson were out first in the butterfly, both flipping at 22.2. Johnson and teammate Gunner Grant led the field after the backstroke, but Khosla was within a body length, just close enough to take charge with the fastest breaststroke leg in the field. Khosla led second-place Johnson by 2.4 seconds headed into the final 50 and he came home .7 faster than in the morning to take nearly a full second off his previous Ivy record.

Johnson and teammate Jared Simpson touched second and third, nearly together, with 1:43.82 and 1:44.01. Princeton’s Max Kreidl touched out teammate Tyler Hong, 1:44.58 to 1:44.76, for fourth place.

Grant came in sixth, followed by Ben Hayes of Brown and Matthew Fallon of Penn, who had come into the meet with the League’s second-fastest time.

Correction: The previous Ivy League record was not Khosla’s, it belonged to Mark Andrew of Penn (1:42.36 at 2019 NCAAs)

The listed records are Meet Records not league records. We’ll be sure to specify going forward.

Relay points are huge, aren’t they? Yale DQ on that 4×50 has them surprisingly far back with 2 days to go

Penn a bit puzzling to me. Didn’t use M. Fallon on the 4×50 medley last night. But he was also off the 4×200 despite a 1:36 split at midseason? Weird, even under the assumption he’s not tapered (judging by the likelihood he has already qualified for NCs, assuming he can win the 100 and 200 breast at Ivies anyway, and a fairly pedestrian 200 IM by his standards). The team still sits in 4th though

Penn’s breaststroker was a 23.9 on the relay, which is pretty solid. Fallon might not be appreciably faster. Not sure why he wouldn’t swim the 4×200. Perhaps they didn’t rest him or maybe he is sick since the IM was a bit off for him.

Is Meet Mobile correct? Millard (Yale) won the B final in 4:16.88 which actually was the fastest time of the night?

Correct. He went 4:18 at HYP, 4:22 in prelims, and then 4:16 in the B finals

Unfortunately, Princeton does not run meets well. Production values, both in terms of espn+ coverage and online resources, are awful compared to championships held at Harvard. Just compare the web page and the links provided from last week’s women’s championship to what Princeton is providing. Amazing that they get this wrong year-after-year. A few years ago at Princeton they awarded the career high point award to the wrong swimmer. Just awful. This meet doesn’t have preliminaries for diving according to the live results page. Notice that the other conferences manage to get the events right. Just Awful.

And I’m not a Harvard fan or a Princeton hater. Just a Yale guy trying to follow these meets.

I agree Princeton has had technically difficulties running the meet in terms of sending results to meet mobile… that being said, I do think the ESPN+ stream has been good today and meet mobile has been updating consistently.

That being said, no matter how much harvard puts in to buying a new scoreboard, 7/8 teams want Ivys removed from blodgett because of how terrible a competition pool it is compared to Princeton and Brown, or a possible neutral site around NYC.

Honestly though, I’m just so happy to be able to see a bunch of different conference meets on YouTube, ESPN+ or whatever streaming service that is provided. We never could have seen this 8 years ago. I’m so happy to have SwimSwam and all of the in depth information too!
