Cincinnati's Josh Schneider announced himself to the world telling Busch he thought he could win did just that with a surprising triumph in the splash-and-dash.
Schneider swam to a sterling time of 18.93, and an amazing ovation from the fans in attendance. His time beat Jimmy Feigen's short-lived pool record of 18.97 set in prelims. Schneider moved up to 10th all time in the event, ahead of Matt Grevers' 18.95 and behind Alex Coville's 18.87 from 2009. Schneider also became Cincinnati's third NCAA champion – not bad for a guy who wore board shorts to his first college practice at Cincy.
