The second evening of action at the NCAA Division II Championships provided some stunning swims, along with some close team title contests between Drury and Queens.

On top of Matt Josa vaulting to 10th all time in the 100 fly for Queens, his squad managed to stand second behind defending champions Drury just 206-202.5.  Wayne State (166), Grand Valley (161) and Lindenwood (153) were third, fourth and fifth after day two in the men’s race.

Queens’ women’s squad managed to get a bit of a bigger lead against defending champions Drury in the women’s team title race, boasting a 280-257.5 lead heading into day three.  Wingate (173), Nova Southeastern (159) and UCSD (113) are the only other teams to clear 100 points.

Drury started the night on fire as Wen Xu (22.46), Vera Johansson (23.19), Katya Rudenko (22.75) and Janet Yu (22.17) surged to a 1:30.57 for the win.

That effort lowered Wayne State’s 2014 NCAA D2 record of 1:31.64, while Xu undercut Bryndis Hansen’s 50 free mark of 22.53 set last night in the individual 50-yard free.

Queens’ Lillian Gordy, Alexandra Marshall, Kristin Diemer and Shane Knight took second in 1:32.17 with Wingate’s Ana Fish, Rita Koryukova, Leigh-Ann Clark and Armony Dumur snagging third in 1:32.38.

Drury pulled ahead of Queens in the team race, 168-157.

It was definitely a back-and-forth battle between Nova Southeastern freshman Courtney Deveny and LIU Post senior Caroline Rademacher, with the pair both holding leads after each stroke.

But, after Rademacher flipped ahead of Deveny, 3:17.13 to 3:18.87, heading into the freestyle, Deveny threw down a 29.81, 27.95 set of splits compared to 30.55 and 30.38, to win 4:16.63 to 4:18.06.

Delta State’s Melanie Tombers rounded out the top three in 4:18.86.

Drury remained ahead of Queens, 181-168, following the 400 IM.

Queens’ Nick Arakelian absolutely obliterated the NCAA D2 record in the men’s 400-yard IM with a time of 3:43.84.

Once Arakelian got through the butterfly leg, there was little doubt he was going to demolish the record as he blew the rest of the field out of the water.

The swim erased the 3:47.62 set by Wayne State’s Piotr Jachowicz back in 2013.

Cal Baptist’s Josh Hanson finished second overall tonight in 3:51.40 with West Chester’s Michael Oliver earning third in 3:51.97 in what proved to be a close fight for second.

Drury remained in the team-title lead with 132 points, while Lindenwood stood second with 130 points.  Queens made a jump up the ladder to third with 124.5 points, while Grand Valley stood fourth with 111 points.

LIU Post’s Joyce Kwok hit the wall second in 53.18, while Carson-Newman’s Natalie Burnett picked up third overall in 53.81 as the only other 53 of the night.

Wingate’s Rita Koryukova, Olga Kosheleva, Armony Dumur and Sofia Petrenko relied on a monster butterfly leg of 51.99 by Dumur to win the relay finale in a time of 3:40.28.  That came within a second of the NCAA D2 record of 3:39.29 set by Drury last year.

Drury downed Queens in the all-important team battle as Drury’s Katya Rudenko, Zuzanna Chwadeczko, Vera Johansson and Wen Xu finished second in 3:41.03.

Queens’ Hannah Peiffer, Caroline Arakelian, Alexandra Marshall and Patricia Castro Ortega took third overall in 3:41.11.

Queens closed out the day ahead of Drury, 280 to 257.5, heading into the third day of swimming.

Men’s 400 medley relay

Queens just demolished the NCAA D2 record of 3:09.72 they set this morning as Matt Josa delivered a ridiculous 44.24 butterfly leg.

Queens’ John Suther (48.49), Nic Eriksson (52.07), Josa (44.24) and Ben Taylor (43.27) took home the NCAA D2 title and record with a sizzling time of 3:08.07.

The squad also had some help in the team-title race as Wayne State’s Juan David Molina Perez, Piotr Jachowicz, Soren Holm and Till Barthell managed to beat Drury’s Jordi Joan Montseny Diez, Kacper Pelczynski, Stanislav Kuzmin and Samuel Olson for second, 3:09.81 to 3:11.05.

Queens trailed Drury just 206-202.5 following an epic day of swimming.
