The race once again went to Dressel. He made history as the first man to break 43, clocking in at 42.80 to dominate the race.
Friday night will feature finals for the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back, and 200 medley relay.
Five teams are within 16 and a half points of one another for the NCAA crown at the moment, with today’s meet-high 7-event prelims session holding perhaps the most valuable key to securing a team championship.
Dressel put up a 44.3 this morning, while Lanza took off with a lifetime best 44.6.
Some amazing swims have us rethinking what’s possible the rest of the week at the 2018 Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships.
While NC State and Texas are 2 of the top teams battling for the title tonight, the Florida Gators are bringing in a team that could be hard to beat.
6 different programs have season-best composite times that add up within a second of one another in an event that could turn the tides of the entire meet.
Caeleb Dressel and the Florida Gators come in as the top seed in the 200 medley relay.
Florida senior Mark Szaranek will be looking to win the 200 IM title outright after winning tying for the victory last year, but he’ll have to deal with Auburn’s Hugo Gonzalez and the rest of a very strong field.
Joseph Schooling will be looking to recapture the 200 fly NCAA title crown in his senior year.
Schooling, the Olympic 100 fly champion, is the top seed heading into the meet with a 44.78 from midseason. Dressel clearly hasn’t shown all of his cards yet since he swapped this event for the 100 breast at SECs, but if his performances in his other events and his fly speed in the 200 IM are any indication, we could be in for something special.
The pre-selection psych sheet was released this morning. The main purpose of this document is figuring out who qualified for the meet…
Indiana University Head Coach Ray Looze is pretty happy with how the Hoosier men performed at the 2018 Men’s Big Ten Championships last week, but the NCAA Championships is still on the horizon.
Indiana University’s Vini Lanza captured 7 gold medals at last week’s 2018 Men’s Big Ten Championships.
The Indiana men repeated as Big Ten champions for the first time since 1985.
