NC State’s MacCausland, USC’s Delgado, and MIchigan’s Pyshnenko were all crucial 21.8-legs in their respective relays before their scratches.
The 50 free will be a bloodbath this year with Kate Douglass and Maggie MacNeil leading the charge, seeded only 0.02 seconds apart.
We’ve made it to the post-season after an entire NCAA season amidst the pandemic, and tonight marks the first finals session of the 2021 Women’s SEC Champs.
With just a few weeks of dual meets left, things should start to get clearer in some corners of the country coming up, while other corners become murkier.
The Louisville men blasted a 1:25 in the 200 medley relay as the Cardinal men took down the Missouri Tigers 199-101, despite missing the Albiero family.
Kentucky’s Riley Gaines won the 100 free and the 200 fly on the final night of the Mizzou Invite, helping the Kentucky women to a decisive victory.
Missouri men maintain their lead going into the final session while the Kentucky women have broadened their lead insurmountably over Arkansas and Mizzou.
Ben Patton and Danny Kovac, both of whom hit new PBs in morning prelims, knocked even more from their fresh best times tonight at the Mizzou Invite.
The Missouri men produced a 3:06.35 in the 400 medley relay, among the fastest times in the country this season, on day 2 of the Mizzou Invite.
Mizzou was dominant in the first session of racing at the 2020 Mizzou Invite, and junior Danny Kovac was only 0.06 off his lifetime best in the 200 IM.
As the Mizzou women battled Arkansas, Sarah Thompson won the 100 free and 100 fly, events that were once dominated by recent Arkansas grad Anna Hopkin.
Texas A&M’s Shaine Casas and Missouri’s Megan Keil, both juniors, were named SEC Swimmers of the Week.
Thompson, who came within a second of her lifetime best, would’ve made the 2019 NCAA B-final in the 100 back with her time today.
Niamh Robinson’s sweep of the breaststroke events helped lead the LSU women to a narrow victory over SEC rival Mizzou by a score of 151-149.
Arkansas senior Anna Hopkin is now the fourth-best performer ever in the 50 free, and her time of 21.19 tonight is the seventh-best performance ever.
