The Virginia women capped off their 2022 NCAA title run by winning the 400 freestyle relay in an American, NCAA, US Open, Meet, and Pool Record time of 3:06.91. That time broke Cal’s record of 3:06.96 which stood since 2019.
|Virginia 2022||Cal 2019|
|Kate Douglass||46.62||Izzy Ivey||47.79|
|Alex Walsh||46.49||Katie McCaughlin||46.62|
|Reilly Tiltmann||47.79||Amy Bilquist||46.48|
|Gretchen Walsh||46.01||Abbey Weitzeil||46.07|
Interestingly enough, two of the splits on tonight’s relay were the exact same as Cal’s. Virginia’s third leg Reilly Tiltmann swam the same time as Izzy Ivey who led off for Cal in a 47.79. Kate Douglass of Virginia led off in a 46.62, the same exact time that Katie McLaughlin swam for Cal on their second leg.
The consistency in the two relays continued as Alex Walsh swam a 46.49 for Virginia tonight on the second leg which was 0.01 slower than Amy Bilquist swam as Bilquist swam the third leg for Cal in a 46.68.
Notably, none of the four are seniors so the same relay has the potential to swim again next year.
