18.00? Down. 43.00? Down. 40.00? This morning, Caeleb Dressel takes aim at the 40-second barrier as he heads up both the 100 free and Florida’s 400 free relay.
Louisville freshman Nicolas Albiero set a new NAG in the prelims of the 200 fly at this morning’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships.
We started with five viable NCAA contenders, and although the meet isn’t over ’til it’s over, we’re effectively down to three contenders, barring any miracles. Let’s take a look at day 4 scoring chances for Indiana, Texas and Cal.
Ian Finnerty hitting his taper is the best news Indiana swimming & diving has gotten this week.
Cal could swap Justin Lynch to fly on the 400 medley relay, throwing in Ryan Hoffer or Michael Jensen as they seek to run down Indiana for the NCAA title.
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.
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.
Day 3 of the meet will feature the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, and 100 back. Cameron Craig will look to defend his 200 free title and meet record.
Ryan Hoffer and the Cal Bears got off to a fast start as they dominated the 200 medley relay, but Arizona’s Chatham Dobbs had a strong showing with a 19.74 fly split to help the Wildcats to silver.
Jensen won the individual 100 free in 43.07 before leading off the winning 400 free relay in 42.99.
Katie Ledecky and Mallory Comerford are tied for most NCAA ‘A’ cuts with 4 each.
Per the request of some of our commenters, we’ve gone through and scored out how the men’s NCAA team battle would go based on the midseason rankings.
