A day after taking down Ryan Lochte’s SEC Meet Record in the 200 IM, Georgia’s Chase Kalisz completed a sweep of the IM titles with a 3:36.21 to set another SEC Meet Record. Kalisz was l0cked in another close battle with Florida’s Mark Szaranek, but held off Szaranek’s freestyle charge to win by 3 tenths.
