The Virginia coaching staff timed a1:36.7, and our hand timing of the video essentially confirms that with a 1:36.9. Regardless of those two-tenths, it is still an incredibly fast time for this early in the season. A time of 1:36.9 would have put them seeded ahead of five teams going into the 2020 NCAA D1 Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships. 1:36.7 would have jumped 3 more teams.
Virginia had the fastest time in the NCAA last season in this event in 1:33.91.
The relay was made up of two of the four members (Wenger and Douglass) of UVA’s ACC meet record-setting relay from last spring.
