Men’s NCAA Championships, Day Two: Auburn Takes Commanding Lead as Crocker, Marshall Set World Records

Phillip Whitten

EAST MEADOW, New York, March 26. AUBURN University took a lead of almost 200 points over second-place Stanford after two days of the men’s NCAA Division I Swimming & Diving Championships in East Meadow, New York, and was on track to score the highest point total ever in the 81 year history of this meet.

But the team “race” was overshadowed by several brilliant individual performances that included two world records and a world-best time. In the first two days of this meet, world records have fallen six times and two world-bests have been swum.

200 meter medley relay
In the prelims of the first event this evening – the 200m medley relay — Stanford established an American record of 1:35.77. But the Cardinal faced a stiff challenge in the final from Auburn (who else?) and Texas.

Peter Marshall got things rolling for Stanford, leading off in an American record 23.70. Doug Van Wie kept Auburn in the race with a 24.24 leadoff time, third-fastest and a tenth better than Texas’ Aaron Peirsol.

At the 100, Auburn had the lead at 50.58 seconds, thanks to Mark Gangloff’s 26.34 breaststroke split. Stanford (50.87) was second, then Texas (50.93) and Cal (51.31).

Then Ian Crocker took off for the Longhorns and boosted them into the lead with his 21.81 fly split, causing Fred Bousquet to comment that “he (Ian) must come from another planet.” At the 150, it was Texas (1:12.74), Auburn (1:13.31), Stanford (1:13.76) and Cal (1:14.22).

It looked as though Texas had the race wrapped, but Auburn’s Derek Gibb anchored in 20.94 to give Auburn the victory in 1:34.25 – a time that is faster than the world record but counts only as an NCAA and US Open mark due to the Auburn relay’s multinational makeup. Texas was second in an American record 1:34.58. Stanford touched third at 1:34.85, but was DQ’ed due to a jump, which gave Cal the bronze in 1:35.02 as four teams bettered the record Stanford set in prelims.

The DQ cost Stanford 32 points (plus the extra points that went to its opponents) and dealt a heavy blow to the Cardinal’s chances of finishing second.

400 meter individual medley
The 400 IM shaped up as a four-way battle among top qualifier Eric Shanteau of Auburn, defending champion Robert Margalis of Georgia, Florida’s Ryan Lochte and USC’s Ous Mellouli.

Lochte, swimming in lane 3, took the race out fast, splitting 55.67 for the fly. Mellouli was next-fastest, 1.5 seconds behind in 57.15. Lochte had the fastest backstroke split as well, 1:02.1, and he touched at the halfway mark in 1:57.80 with a commanding lead of precisely two seconds over Mellouli.

The USC sophomore made his move on the breaststroke leg, splitting 1:09.55 to Locte’s 1:11.50 to cut the margin to a scant 5-hundredths of a second. It appeared that Mellouli, an outstanding miler, would overtake Lochte on the freestyle leg, but the Gator sophomore had plenty left in his tank, and lengthened his lead with his 55.22 split.

At the wall it was Lochte in an American andN CAA record 4:04.52 with Mellouli second in 4:04.90 Margalis and Shanteau finished some five seconds back and were never really in the race.

Afterwards, Lochte said: “I could see (Mellouli) over in lane 6 and I knew I had the race won when I turned first after the breaststroke.’

100 meter butterfly
What more is there to say that we didn’t say in our Flash! story when Ian Crocker absolutely obliterated the world record he had set only six hours before?

In the afternoon he became the first man to break 50 seconds with his 49.77. In the finals he almost became the first man under 49 with his amazing 49.07 mark.

Only this: With his victory, Crocker became only the third man to win the 100 fly four consecutive years at the NCAAs. The other two: Mark Spitz and Pablo Morales.

“I was hitting all the details correctly today – the starts, the turns, the underwater, the breakouts.”

Cocker said the two WR swims today were “nice to have in my portfolio when I turn pro after this meet.”

The confident Texas senior said his goal is to “swim faster than anyone thinks I can go.”

200 meter freestyle
Jayme Cramer has a history of going out hard and fading in the final 50 of a race. This time the Stanford junior was determined not to repeat his old pattern.

So even though he qualified first, Cramer held himself in check, as Florida’s Adam Sioui, the 2002 champion, lead through the 50 (24.77 seconds) and the 100 (51.09). Cramer, sixth at the 50, moved up to third at the 100, 1.01 seconds off the pace.

Cramer moved up into the second spot at the 150, cutting his deficit in half to 0.49 seconds. Both men were hurting on the final 50, but Cramer overtook Sioui to score his first NCAA title in 1:45.04, just managing to hold off fast-closing Dan Kechum (1:45.11) and George Bovell (1:45.13). Sioui followed in 1:45.28.

Cramer attributed his success to a change in his training focus from the 100 fly and back to training harder in the freestyle distance sets.

With his convincing win in the 100m breast, Texas’ Brendan became only the second man to win that event at the NCAAs all four years of his college career. The other four-peater: SMU’s Steve Lundquist, who went on to Olympic gold in 1984.

Tonight, Hansen got out fast, splitting 27.29 at the 50, with only Auburn’s Mark Gangloff and Washington’s Phil Davis able even to stay close. He held that advantage in the second half of the race, touching in 58.19 seconds, with Gangloff second in 58.78 and Wyoming’s Scott Usher third in 59.01.

Hansen said he felt tremendous pressure as he thought about duplicating Lundquist’s feat. “It really hit me in the Ready Room. I had never been so nervous – it was worse than the Olympic trials.”

“When we walked out and I got on the blocks, a calm came over me and I knew I could do it.”

He did.

Hansen credited Crocker for his success: “Ian got me all fired up. He’s gotten the whole team all fired up.”

Tomorrow Hansen attempts to become the first man to win the 200m breast – his preferred event – for years straight.

100 meter backstroke
You want world records? We got world records for you!

Stanford’s Peter Marshall rocketed to the sixth world record of these championships, blitzing the 100 back in 50.32 seconds. The old world record was 50.58 set two years ago by Germany’s Thomas Rupprath.

Marshall took command right at the start, turning at the 50 in 24.55 seconds with Cal’s Alex Lim, his closest pursuer, half a second back (25.04). Then he came roaring back to win by almost 1.3 seconds over teammate Markus Rogan (51.60). Aaron Peirsol, the world champion, was third in 51.75.

“I was shooting for the record when the meet began, but when I went 51.1 in the relay prelims I thought, ‘Hey this record may be tougher than I thought.’ Then I went 50.79 (An NCAA and US Open record) leading off in finals and I felt I’d lost my chance because I always swim faster in relays. So I was really surprised to finally get the record tonight,” he said.

Marshall said he plans now to turn his attention to the Olympic Trials. “The 100 back at Trials will probably be the deepest field in the world: “We’ll have Lenny (Krayzelburg), Neil (Walker), Aaron Peirsol, Jeff Rouse, Randall Bal and Dan Westcott. Aaron’s probably the head of the pack as he is world champion, but every one of us has a legitimate shot and I intend to give it everything I’ve got.”

800 meter freestyle relay,/b>
On paper it looked like Michigan had the guns it needed to win the 800 free relay.

It looked the same way in the water – only more so.

Coach Jon Urbanchek’s squad of Peter Vanderkaay 91:45.69), Dav Tarwater (1:45.61), Andrew Hurd (1:44.96) and Dan Ketchum (1:45.16) clocked an NCAA record 7:01.42, just missing the American record set by the US National Team by 9-hundredths of a second.

Stanford was a distant second (7:05.94) and Florida third (7:06.95).

Auburn’s George bovell had the fastest leadoff time, 1:44.81, which would have won the 200 free. Jayme Cramer, who did win the 200 free, had the fastest relay split, 1:44.59.
