American sprinting sensation Caleb Dressel took the victory in an 18.46, which ranks as the 7th fastest performance of all time, although Dressel holds the six faster times. After his 17.90 split on the medley last night, it was reported that he was unshaved, so expect to see faster times from Dressel come NCAA’s. Florida junior Enzo Martinez-Scarpe took 8th with a time of 19.67.

Women’s 200 Free Relay:

The Gators finished 8th, with Kelsey Dambacher (22.89), freshman Emma Ball (22.55), Alyssa Yambo-Maul (23.06), and freshman Sheridan Dressel (22.48) combining for a 1:30.98. South Carolina sophomore and Boca Raton native McKenna Keith contributed a 22.91 split en route to South Carolina’s 9th place finish.

Men’s 200 Free Relay:

Dressel does it again. On the second leg of 200 free relay, Dressel split a 17.86, tying Vlad Morozov for the fastest split in history. Dressel’s split once again led the Gator’s to a 1st place finish, with Enzo Martinez-Scarpe (19.67), Jan Switkowski (18.90), and Jack Blyzinskyj (19.24) joining Dressel in a new pool record.
