As a herd of conference meets get underway this week the AAC championships are staged for some fast swimming and intense match-ups.

The East Carolina men and Houston women will look to repeat their team titles from last year.

Houston looks like they should nab a back-to-back team title as they come into the meet taking most of the top spots on the psych sheet. The East Carolina men will likely have a more difficult time repeating their win due to their lack of depth on their roster this year.

Houtson’s first top seed comes in the very first event, the 800 free relay, while the University of Connecticut’s men’s team takes the top seeded spot in the event.

HU Sophomore Zarena Brown will look to win the 500 freestyle on day two of the meet as she is coming in with the top time by nearly five and a half seconds with a 4:44.13.

The ECU duo of John Myre and Victor Martins Dos Santos will attempt to go 1-2 as they are seeded in the 50 free, both men are seeded with times of 20.61 and 20.62, respectively.

Connecticut’s William Kearsey will aim for the 100 back title as he comes into the meet with the fastest time by nearly a second with his swift 47.45.

In the women’s 1650 free Houston freshman Reese Lamph will try and win her first conference title while the men’s race will feature Cincinnati distance trio Christopher Bready, Din Selmanovic and Tyler Jones.
