Dalton Takes Down Division III NCAA Record in 100 Fly

Reed Dalton of Wash U. Mo came into the meet as the second seed but didn’t let that stop him from cracking the NCAA record set in 2013 in this very pool by MIT’s Wyatt Ubellacker. Dalton’s final time was a 47.10, more than 2 tenths faster than the NCAA record set at 47.34 two years ago.

Dalton will be facing off against defending champion Karl Mering of Whitman in finals, as well as Blake Lehmann of DePauw, tied for second with Mering going into tonight.

Dalton’s splits were the fastest in the field on both halves:

  • 22.20
  • 24.90

Great 100 fly. On a related note, Wilson from Emory split a 51.66, a legitimate D1 level swim. Eagles on fire


ya that’s an unreal split for d3… he was the reason emory was that close in that 4 med race.


Congratulations to Reed from his home club team – Blue Tide Aquatics of Kingwood, TX
