University of Virginia’s Leah Smith laid waste to the NCAA Record in the women’s 1650 to take the ACC Title in an otherworldly time of 15:25.30…..and kept the bells ringing in her head the whole time.

This was after Dressel’s prelims 50 freestyle swim of 18.39. Did somebody check-in on Will Licon after Dressel topped that with his 18.23?
@caelebdressel boss status! Congrats!
