Georgia Tech’s Caio Pumputis (above) won a pair of headline breaststroke duels against Alabama’s Derek Maas, but Alabama took the team win in a squeaker.
After a tight day of racing, the Alabama men lead the Wildcats by a score of 80-70, while the Kentucky women lead the Alabama women 79-71.
It’s only December 15th, but the Texas men are already projected over the NCAA roster cap with 21 likely qualifiers based on last year’s invite times.
The Texas men lead all teams with six swimmers hitting automatic qualifying times so far this year, and the Texas women have four swimmers locked in.
The Virginia Cavaliers have assembled a loaded roster that leads the NCAA ranks. The top threats to their title run, though, remain hard to predict.
Nathan Adrian made an appearance at the meet, swimming the men’s LCM 50 and 100 free.
The UVA men narrowly edged Alabama, thanks to a team record-setting 400 free relay to close out the meet, to close out three fast days by all teams.
Kate Douglass continued her dominant performance at the 2020 Tennessee Invite by earning the top time from prelims in the 100 free with a 47.77.
Kate Douglass went the fastest 50 fly relay split in history tonight, then became the seventh woman ever to break 50 seconds in the 100 fly.
That’s a lifetime best by .18, moving her up one spot to #10 in history, and bringing her less than a second off of the fastest time ever done (49.26).
The defending SEC Champion Tennessee Volunteers women (above) will play host to the defending ACC Champion Virginia Cavaliers women this weekend.
Louisville and Virginia led all Division I women’s teams with 16 First-Team Selections, while Texas led on the Division I men’s side with 17.
Bailey Bonnett and the Kentucky Wildcats lead the SEC in returning points, but Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia all lurk in a wide-open swimming & diving race.
It was a senior-heavy NCAA, with five seniors projected among the top 8 individual scorers. We look back at the past 4 years to evaluate recruiting ranks.
The 100 fly is one of the most anticipated showdowns, featuring 2 women tied as the NCAA Record holders and a 3rd who holds the American Record.
