Although the swimmers may have been tired during the final night of racing in Indy, the times did not reflect that. We saw 5 US Open records fall out of 6 events swam today, a night of racing unparalleled by any yards meet in the world. Floridians continued their hot streak tonight, with highlights including:

Men’s 1650:

Florida senior Mitch D’Arrigo took 9th in the 1650 with a time of 14:38.40. Stanford freshman and Ocala native True Sweetser also scored for his team, posting a time of 14:40.72, good for 12th place.

Men’s 200 back:

Bolles graduate and Cal backstroke star senior Ryan Murphy won the 200 back for the 4th consecutive year, posting a 1:36.75.

Men’s 100 free:

Florida junior Caeleb Dressel has brought his name into the discussion of best yards swimmer of all time. He posted a 40.00, an excruciating .01 off breaking the 40 barrier, a barrier that no one thought could be broken until Dressel enter NCAA swimming. The sprinting star still broke every record on the books; he broke the American, US Open, NCAA, and, of course, the Florida records with that swim. Coral Springs native and USC junior Dylan Carter was also in the A final, posting a 41.76 for 4th. Just .01 behind him was Bolles graduate and fellow USC junior Santo Condorelli, tying for 5th with Texas junior Brett Ringgold, with a time of 41.77.

Men’s 200 breast:

Auburn senior and Floridian Michael Duderstadt won the consolation final with a 1:53.13. Coral Springs native and Cornell junior Alex Evdokimov joined Duderstadt in the B final, taking 13th with a 1:54.22.

Men’s 200 fly:

Florida junior Jan Switkowski took 10th with a 1:41.61, just .15 off of his prelims time from this morning.

Men’s 400 free relay:

Texas junior and Bolles graduate Joseph Schooling anchored the Texas relay to a victory, finishing off the relay with a 41.02. The Gator’s relay finished second, with the quartet of junior Caeleb Dressel (40.48), junior Jan Switkowski (41.50), freshman Maxime Rooney (42.13), and junior Mark Szaranek (42.10) posting a 2:46.21. There were two Floridians on the 3rd place USC relay. Bolles graduate and junior Santo Condorelli led off with a 41.87, and Coral Springs native and junior Dylan Carter split a 41.10 on the 3rd leg. On the 4th place Cal relay, Jacksonville native and Golden Bears senior Ryan Murphy split a 41.73 as the second leg.


Miami Freshman David Dinsmore became an NCAA Champion tonight with a huge score of 528.20. He didn’t score 81 points on a single dive. FSU’s Dylan Grisell ended his brilliant career with a 9th place finish and a score of 389.00. Fellow teammates Aidan Faminoff and Tyler Roberge finished 25th (309.65) and 27th (297.00) respectively.
