Day two results

MEN’S MEET

Hawaii moved into a slim lead after day two, putting up four A-finalists in the 200 IM, three in the 50 free, and one in the 500 free. They went without a winner on the night, led by 200 IM runner-up David Springhetti (1:46.11).

That 200 IM was won by UCSB’s Douglas Nogueira, keying on a 25.10 final 50 to push past Springhetti to the wall at 1:45.83. This session was all UCSB at the beginning, as they kicked off the night by winning the 200 free relay with a 1:18.20 to snap the meet record set by BYU in 2013. UCSB was led by a 19.13 second leg from Riley Ferguson and a 19.28 anchor from Justin Nguyen. Hawaii was 1:18.76 for second, with Franz Adam anchoring at 19.33, and BYU took third in 1:18.80 with a 19.21 anchor from Connor Stirling.

The big split came on the end of UCSD’s fourth-place relay, however, as Spencer Daily ripped an 18.84. Daily is a sophomore.

UCSB was back in action in the 500 free, as Joseph Lastelic clocked a 4:19.84 to snag the win. Finally, in the 50 free, BYU swam to a 1-2 finish with Jared Shaw (19.62) and Stirling (19.77). Hawaii took third and fourth with aukai Lileikis (19.78) and Mateusz Chaba (19.86), while Daily would grab fifth (19.88).
