California Sets American Record in 400 Free Relay; Auburn Officially Wins Marsh’s 11th Career Title

By Jason Marsteller

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, March 10. THE California quartet of Emily Silver, Erin Reilly, Jessica Hardy and Dana Vollmer gave the Bears another American and NCAA record with a blazing fast time of 3:12.13 to win the 400 freestyle relay. That effort eclipsed the AR of 3:13:38 set by Georgia in 2006. It also surpassed the NCAA record of 3:12.77 set by Arizona in 2006.

Meanwhile, the Wildcat team of Lacey Nymeyer, Lindsey Kelly, Anna Turner and Whitney Myers placed second with a time of 3:13.36 that also went under the AR, while Georgia's squad of Jessica Cole, Anna Miller, Kelly McNichols and Kara Lynn Joyce finished third in 3:14.31.
