Casas’ swim on Friday makes him the 14th-fastest performer of all-time in an event that he’s only raced a handful of times in his career.
In the month of February, two different Florida Gator men shattered American and NCAA records in the 500 free and 1650 free.
American records by Robert Finke (1650 free) and Kieran Smith (500 free) were earth-shattering – but were they as historic as Caeleb Dressel’s 50/100 frees?
It was an explosive first week of major conference championships. We count down our top 10 swims of a week including SECs, ACCs, and Big Tens.
The Florida men won their 8th consecutive SEC swimming title over the weekend. Here’s how it happened in numbers.. All of the numbers.
Florida’s Kieran Smith was named the 2020 SEC Men’s Swimmer of the Meet for his historic performance in Auburn. He set a new American Record in the 500 free.
Auburn’s women crushed the SEC Records as they swept the sprint free relays, including the 2nd fastest 200 free relay in NCAA history.
Florida’s Bobby Finke, the 500 free and 400 IM bronze medalist, set the SEC Record in the mile last season and narrowly missed the NCAA Record.
Khader Baqlah returned to the top of the SEC podium in the 200 free as the Florida Gators earned their 8th-straight title.
The Florida men, led by Head Coach Anthony Nesty, look to cement their 8th-straight victory on the final day of the 2020 SEC Championships.
Florida’s Sherridon Dressel, the 2019 bronze medalist, will battle with Asia Seidt (Kentucky) and Meet Record holder Rhyan White (Alabama) in the 100 back.
Dressel, the 100 back silver medalist, has opted for the 200 back over the 100 free. Smith did the opposite, scratching the 200 back to swim the 100 free.
On night 4, Bama’s Zane Waddell became the 5th fastest man in history with his swim in the 100 back. He broke the former SEC Record set by Casas at midseason.
