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).

Comparative Splits

  • 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.

Have they changed the policies? Back when I swam for college in the 80s, if a DII or DIII swimmer hit the mark, they went to the DI Championships. Obviously to break 45 in the 100 fly sets you among the elite. Is his season finished or will he travel to Iowa?

Any idea what the fastest 100 fly split on the 400 medley is? Josa was 44.2!
