The 2015 SEC Championships began in earnest on Tuesday morning with the first session of time trial races from the James E. Martin Aquatics Center on the campus of Auburn University.
While these results won’t factor into the scoring of the meet, they will start to build some buzz around the meet and also can earn spots for the NCAA Championships.
The big highlights thus far have been a pair of School Records. One came from Vanderbilt sophomore Kayla Moran, who swam a 23.43 to break her own school record of 23.48 done at last year’s SEC Championship meet.
The other came from Texas A&M freshman Brock Bonetti, who swam a 1:43.23 in the 200 backstroke. That broke Simon Frank’s year-old program record of 1:43.66, but is still shy of what it took to qualify for the NCAA Championships in this event in each of the last two years.
- Main split – 19.48
