Georgia’s Chase Kalisz smashed one of the most impressive American records on the books with a 3:34.50 in the 400 IM that won him his second NCAA title in the event.
Michigan broke the NCAA record in this event at Big Tens, and while a second record-breaking swim is unlikely, the Wolverines hope this event can power them to a repeat NCAA team title.
Dave Nolan smoked a tough 200 IM field with a 1:41.49, just a few tenths off his NCAA-winning time from last season. He’s now the fourth man in the nation under 1:42 this season in what should be a crazy event come nationals.
The USC Trojans dominated the men’s 800 free relay with a 6:12.54. SPLITS: Dylan Carter led off in 1:33.61, followed by Dimitri Colupaev (1:34.16 – senior), Reed Malone (1:32.85 – freshman) and Cristian Quintero (1:31.92 – senior).
