Overall, 12 Pool Records were broken by the Longhorns: the 200 medley relay, 50/100/200/500/1000 free 100/200 back, 100 breast,100/200 fly, and 200 free relay
Coach Eddie Reese’s Texas men couldn’t have swum much better at the Minnesota Invite, and they now lead our NCAA Power Ranks.
Our women’s NCAA swimming & diving ranks had a change at #1… will our men’s ranks do the same? There’s a lot to unpack after mid-season invites.
After punching a nation #1 time of 41.82 this morning in the 100 free, Texas’s Daniel Krueger is the favorite for the win tonight.
His time of 1:39.15 in the 200 back ranks second in the nation this year, behind only Texas A&M’s Shaine Casas (1:38.21).
Swimmers like Alvin Jiang and Max McHugh continue to impress with nation-leading times during day 3 prelims at the 2019 Minnesota Invite.
Alvin Jiang didn’t wait long after transferring from UNC to make a splash with Texas, throwing down a 43.8 fly split that ranks among the fastest of all time.
Longhorn Daniel Krueger has been swimming fast all season, and he became the first man to hit 43.0 this season today at the IU-Louisville-Texas tri meet.
The Longhorns bookended the meet with nation-leading relay performances, ultimately winning all except two events behind strong underclassmen showings.
Texas sophomore Daniel Krueger, the top 100 free returner from last year’s NCAAs, became the first man in the still-young season to go (unofficially) sub-42.
The depth is outstanding, especially with elite freshmen and transfers incoming. The task will be swimming best times at NCAAs – an issue in 2019.
Our top four classes include three perennial NCAA title contenders… and one program you might not expect. Pictured: #2 overall recruit Jake Foster.
Tonight’s session features finals of the 400 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, 100 backstroke, and men’s 4 x 200 freestyle relay.
Aussie Elijah Winnington will contest in the 400 free prelims while 200 breast champ Reece Whitley and WUGs champ Ian Finnerty will meet in the 100 breast.
Tualatin Hills Swim Club led the final tally in the women’s meet while University of Denver Hilltoppers won the men’s meet at 2019 Mt. Hood Sectionals.
