Henderson State took a big .40 bite out of the NCAA Division II and meet record in the 200 medley relay with a 1:16.50 from Lamar Taylor, Jack Armstrong, Jase Pinckney, and Patryk Dabrowski.

Swimming in the fastest heat, Taylor led off for Henderson State with 19.10, putting his team out front by half a body length at the 50 over top-seeded Tampa. Taylor handed off to Armstrong, whose 18.56 increase that lead to a full body length at the 100 (37.66). Pinckney (19.17) and Dabrowski (19.67) assured the back half and the Reddies got the win with 1:16.50. They were 1.64 seconds faster than they’d been a year ago – with 3/4 of this same quartet – and their time set a new NCAA Division II national record.

Everyone was a lot faster this time around. For comparison sake, here are the relevant splits:
