WOMEN’S 200 FREE RELAY

  1. Cal, 1:26.31
  2. Georgia, 1:26.79
  3. Virginia, 1:28.74

The Cal women were just .11 shy of the NCAA Record tonight, with Abbey Weitzeil (21.8), Amy Bilquist (21.8), Valerie Hull (21.4), and Farida Osman (21.28) combining for a new school record of 1:26.31. Weitzeil holds the American Record with a 21.12 in the 50 free, so we could definitely see them breaking that NCAA Record during championship season when Weitzeil is at her peak.

The Georgia women put together a fast 1:26.79 for 2nd place. Olivia Smoliga turned in a 21.68 leadoff, while Chantal Van Landeghem swam the fastest split of the field with her 21.14 on the anchor leg.
