Fourth last season, the Louisville Cardinals kick off the 2023-24 campaign as SwimSwam’s #3 ranked team in the NCAA.
Milutinovich is LSU’s fastest returning 50 and 100 freestyler, and has times on the brink of NCAA qualification individually.
Virginia has the two fastest swimmers of all-time in the 50 free, putting them leaps and bounds ahead of the field in the 200 free relay.
Maggie MacNeil blazed the fastest 100 free split ever (45.26) to help LSU edge Florida by just .26 seconds in a thrilling women’s 400 free relay showdown.
Maggie MacNeil helped LSU’s 400 free relay team clock a 3:13.93, breaking the school record of 3:15.56 that had stood since 2009.
Florida State won the men’s meet in a 180-120 decision while LSU won the women’s meet 180.5-119.5.
In one of the more unexpected swims of the meet, Alabama distance star Kensey McMahon won the women’s 200 fly decisively, speeding to a 1:56.97.
MacNeil has already started breaking LSU program records, taking down the 100 back and 100 free marks yesterday.
In her first-ever meet as an LSU tiger, MacNeil split 22.29 in the 50 fly, which ties for the eighth-fastest split of all time in the event.
While some got close, no swimmers managed to hit the Olympic selection cut in their respective events on day 2 of South African Trials.
