Virginia sophomore Ted Schubert was disqualified in prelims of the men’s 400 IM on Friday night at the ACC Championships, nullifying a 3:43.54 that would have qualified him for the A-Final.
Undeterred, Schubert swam the race again in the post-finals time trial session and roared his way to the best time of the night and very-nearly an ACC Championship Record.
He swam 3:39.52, which besides being his best time by almost 6 seconds, is the 4th-best time in the country this season (pending Big Ten and Pac-12 results). It also breaks the Virginia school record. The old mark coming into the day was a 3:42.03 set by Pat Mellors in 2007. That was the 2nd oldest school record on Virginia swimming’s books before Brendan Casey broke it with a 3:41.94 in the final for 3rd place.
- Fly – 49.77
- Back – 55.39
- Breast – 1:02.90
- Free – 51.46
- Total Time – 3:39.52
Schubert’s prelims DQ was called for the “Lochte rule,” or for the underwater kicking on his freestyle resembling backstroke too much.
This was Schubert’s first swim of the meet. He’s still due for the 1650 free and 200 fly on Saturday, the final day of the meet.
