Fresh off resetting his 200 IM record last night Matthew Josa became the first man under 45 in Division II History touching the wall well ahead of the field at 44.89. Josa separated himself from the field the first 50 touching at 20.96 while impressively coming home in under 24 seconds (23.93).
- Josa, 2014 – 21.11/24.34= 45.45
- Josa, 2015- 20.96/23.93= 44.89
Very similar swims for the sophomore taking the first 50 out a little under two-tenths faster while staying down off of his last wall compared to last year allowing him to come home roughly four-tenths faster. The swim tonight would place Josa third going into the DI Championships behind Texas and Singapore standout Joseph Schooling(44.81). Josa still has one more 100 butterfly swim left with the 400 medley relay coming up at the end of the session. Queens will need the first place points if they want to cut into Drury’s current 11.5 point lead.
