Georgia sophomore Luca Urlando swam the #9 fastest 100 butterfly in the NCAA history ever. Urlando swam to a final time of 44.41 to capture the win for the Bulldogs at the 2022 SEC Championships tonight.

That was a huge personal best for Urlando as his previous best time was a 44.97 which he swam at SEC’s last year. He now moves up from #32 to #10.

Urlando won the event in commanding fashion as Florida’s Eric Friese finished second in 44.86.

Dont you know? The ACC isnt a top level swimming conference like the Pac 12 or SEC. Theres just not the same top end speed or team depth….

Oh wait… we saw the top 2 womens teams last year from the ACC and many ACC mens teams in the top 10 constantly.
