Alabama’s Zane Waddell has done it again. Shortly after winning the 100 back title in a new SEC Record, Waddell broke his own mark with a 44.10 to lead off the winning 400 medley relay. That took a tenth off his own record from earlier in the session, when he clocked a 44.24 to win back-to-back title. Waddell, the 2019 World Champion in the 50 back, is the 5th fastest man in history.

Berneburg’s 19.88 to the feet was faster than his 20.28 anchor on the 200 medley relay, where he missed the wall and Alabama wound up 4th.
Alabama blew away the SEC Meet Record by over a second with their winning time of 3:02.17. The overall SEC Record stands as a 3:01.39 done by Auburn in 2009.
