Six hours after becoming the first medley relay in Division II history to break the 1:26 barrier with their 1:25.95 in prelims, Queens University of Charlotte took another .06 off the new NCAA record, going 1:25.89 in finals. In prelims, the quartet of Zach Bunner, Rostyslav Fedyna, Paul Pijulet, and Ben Mayes had beaten a 3-year-old record set by Wayne State at the 2014 NCAA Division II Championships, a race in which Queens had placed second with 1:26.83.
