Taking down the B1G 400 medley relay record were the Indiana Hoosiers, blasting a 3:03.28 to clear the old record by 1.12 seconds. Northwestern held the old record at 3:04.40, which Ohio State also got under in their 2nd place finish tonight (3:04.13). On the relay, Blake Pieroni, Vini Lanza, and Ian Finnerty posted the top splits of the entire field.
|OLD RECORD||NEW RECORD|
NU set this record back in their Matt Grevers golden days; they also set the NCAA record in the same swim with their 3:04.40 at the 2007 NCAA Championships, winning the national title in the process. IU, today, took over a full second off of that record, with Pieroni being noticeably much faster than NU’s anchor.
IU’s time of 3:03.28, meanwhile, sets themselves up very well for the NCAA Championships– that time rockets them up to #1 in the country this year.
