SwimMAC Extends Lead in Team Scoring on Day 3 of 2014 U.S. Nationals

SwimMAC Carolina extended their lead on day 3 of the 2014 U.S. National Championships in the team standings, and are now over 100 points ahead of second-place Cal in the combined team standings.

The SwimMAC men, especially, did work with 84 points. Nobody else scored more than 50 (Cal men). David Marsh’s crew got a win in the 400 IM, had three swimmers in the A-Final of the men’s 100 fly (Tim Phillips, Ryan Lochte, and Matthew Josa), plus the runner-up in the 50 back (Nick Thoman).

The SwimMAC women, while it wasn’t quite as obvious, earned even more – 102 points – on Friday. That’s in part thanks to their 3rd-place 800 free relay, and partially thanks to a 3rd/4th place result in the women’s 50 breaststroke from Katie Meili and Micah Lawrence.

The Cal combined squad, even with event victories from Rachel Bootsma and Tom Shields, along with a second-place swim in the 800 free relay, still lost ground in the combined scores.

The top 10 in each category is below. See all team scores through three days here.

Yay go Swimmac!

If Cal swam their relays and there was a SwimMac/Cal/NBAC meet, that would be really interesting. Georgia stepped up big too.
