An unshaved Ryan Held shredded his way to a new ACC Record on night 2 of the 2017 Men’s ACC Championships. Held secured the victory for the Wolfpack with a lifetime best 18.68, clearing the former Conference Record of 18.76 set by former teammate Simonas Bilis at last season’s conference meet.
Held now moves up to 2nd in the nation this season behind only Caeleb Dressel‘s 18.46 from the 2017 SEC Championships a couple of weeks ago. He moved just ahead of Texas’ Joseph Schooling, who blasted an 18.76 for a new Big 12 Record last weekend.
Held now moves from outside the top 20 to 7th on the all time top performers list. He’s just 2 hundredths behind Nathan Adrian, who sits 6th with an 18.66 from the 2011 Minneapolis Grand Prix.
