After an early DQ in the 200 free relay, the Stanford Cardinal recovered about as well as a team can on day 2 of the 2016 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships.
After Ella Eastin swam the all-time fastest 200 IM, the Stanford 400 medley relay came back and did the same to end the session.
The team of Ally Howe, Sarah Haase, Janet Hu, and Lia Neal combined for a 3:26.14. That broke their own NCAA, American, and U.S. Open Records of 3:26.25 done at the 2016 Pac-12 Championships.
A touch-pad error from Pac-12s doesn’t allow for a splits comparison, but Stanford’s NCAA splits were Howe (51.89), Haase (57.02), Hu (50.65), and Neal (46.58).
All swimmers on the Stanford relay were underclassmen aside from Haase, and the Cardinal expect to get back redshirted Simone Manuel, the fastest 100 yard freesytler in history, next season.
