PHOENIX, Arizona, March 1. CONFERENCE meets are always exciting to follow for swimming fans, as many universities step up to qualify as many athletes as possible for the NCAA championships. This year has been one of the best we've seen in a long time, with American records and plenty of quick times posted. We wanted to know which Division I college conference meet you thought was the most competitive, and the race was a close one. With 42.73 percent of the votes, it was the Pac 12 meet that was voted the most competitive, with the Southeastern conference just slightly behind with 42.29 percent. The ACC, Big 10 and Big 12 meets were well behind in voting.
Last weekend we saw some amazing swims, not just at the conference level, but at high school meets as well, and we wanted to know which of these four record-breaking swims you think was the most impressive. Was it Breeja Larson's American record in the 100 breast of 57.43 in the 100 breast,
Connor Black's national public high school record time of 47.61 in the 100 fly, Georgia's American record in the women's 800 free relay with a 6:52.64 or Germantown Academy's national high school record of 3:21.63 in the girls' 400 free relay? I know these are four tough options, but you can only choose one. Go to our home page at swimmingworld.com and place your vote by next Friday, when we'll bring you the results.
