NCAA champions Mallory Comerford of Louisville and Andreas Vazaios of NC State headline the Atlantic Coast Conference’s yearly award winners for the 2017-18 Swimming and Diving Season.
NCAA Messieurs 2018 jour 4 : Caeleb Dressel a gagné des batailles, et le Texas d’Eddie Reese a gagné la guerre
Une fois de plus, c’est Eddie Reese qui a gagné, Texas, à la onzième heure, ayant réussi à accumuler le plus de points. Malgré Dressel, Florida est seulement cinquième.
The 2018 men’s championships wrapped up last night so now it’s time to look at individual performances.
Indiana and Ian Finnerty lead the way heading into the final day, but they’ll have to hold off hard-charging Texas and Cal tonight to seal an upset NCAA team title.
The 200 fly was shaping up to be a close one, but NC State’s Andreas Vazaios remained on top as the only swimmer to break 1:39 in the final.
Vazaios broke 1:40 for the first time this morning, clocking in at 1:39.68.
Indiana leads a brutally-close team battle, and also has several event title contenders tonight: among them Ian Finnerty (pictured) in the 100 breast and Blake Pieroni in the 200 free.
Friday night will feature finals for the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back, and 200 medley relay.
Five teams are within 16 and a half points of one another for the NCAA crown at the moment, with today’s meet-high 7-event prelims session holding perhaps the most valuable key to securing a team championship.
It’s been a night of Florida domination, with 50 frees of 17.81 and 17.63 from Caeleb Dressel, a 200 IM win from Jan Switkowski and a national title in the 200 free relay.
Watch Florida’s Jan Switkowski & NC State’s Andreas Vazaios throw down a pair of 1:39s in the 200 IM on the 2nd night of the 2018 NCAA Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships.
In a massive surge of IM performances, this year’s NCAA Championships produced 5 of the fastest 11 200 IMers in history.
Tonight, it was Florida’s Jan Switkowski taking over, as he put up a 1:39.54 to become the 3rd fastest performer ever. Behind him, NC State’s Vazaios also broke 1:40 in 1:39.97 to become #4.
Indiana’s Blake Pieroni moved up all the way up to the top in the all-time rankings as the leadoff member of his squad, clocking in at 1:29.63 to become the first man ever to break 1:30.
NC State posted a blistering 6:05.31 to crack the NCAA Record and win the title.
