Men’s 100 fly

Texas’ Joseph Schooling, who admitted he wasn’t feeling the best heading into the race, broke the NCAA and U.S. Open record in the men’s 100-yard fly at the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Schooling unloaded a blistering time of 44.01 to defend his NCAA title.  He won with a 44.51 last year that is the fourth-fastest time ever.

Schooling’s 44.01 blasted the NCAA and U.S. Open record of 44.18 set by Stanford’s Austin Staab back in 2009.

Comparative splits:

Schooling: 20.46, 44.01
Staab: 20.56, 44.18

The title defense made Schooling one of several multiple winners in the event’s history.  More importantly, he kept a potential career sweep intact.  Texas’ Ian Crocker, Stanford’s Pablo Morales and Indiana’s Mark Spitz are the only swimmers to ever pull off that feat.

Multiple 100 Fly Winners:

4 – Ian Crocker, Texas
4 – Pablo Morales, Stanford
4 – Mark Spitz, Indiana
3 – Lars Frolander, SMU
3 – Anthony Nesty, Florida
3 – Tom Shields, California
2 – Pat Arvidsson, California

2 – Jay Mortenson, Stanford
2 – Walt Richardson, Minnesota
2 – Austin Staab, Stanford
2 – Albert Subirats, Arizona
2 – John Trembley, Tennessee
2 – Joseph Schooling, Texas

The win gave Texas its sixth victory of the meet, more than halfway to the record of 11 wins by a team set by Texas in 2001.

Florida’s Caeleb Dressel, fresh off a stunning 18.20 in the 50 free yesterday, moved to third all time in the event’s history with a blistering 44.40.

Men’s 200 free

Texas’ Townley Haas turned in a stunning NCAA and American record in the men’s 200-yard free at the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Haas raced his way to a blistering time of 1:30.46, lowering Simon Burnett’s NCAA record of 1:31.20 set here in Atlanta back in 2006 as well as Ricky Berens‘ American mark of 1:31.31. Most amazingly, Haas swam faster than his fastest-ever 800 free relay split of 1:30.52.

Comparative splits:

Haas: 20.90, 43.61, 1:06.92, 1:30.46
Berens: 21.43, 44.80, 1:08.06, 1:31.31
Burnett: 21.28, 44.44, 1:07.53, 1:31.20

Haas, who destroyed the 500 free last night, became the first swimmer since Florida’s Conor Dwyer in 2010 to win the 200 and 500 free.

Haas also won Texas’ seventh title of the meet, helping UT continue to close in on the record of 11 set by Texas back in 2001.

Georgia’s Matias Koski turned in a sizzler himself for second with a 1:31.54, the fifth-fastest time ever.

Men’s 100 back

California’s Ryan Murphy has been unstoppable this week in the 100 backstroke, breaking his NCAA and American record in the men’s 100-yard back at the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Murphy won the finale tonight in 43.49 to down his record of 43.51 set as the relay leadoff for California in the 400-yard medley relay.

Murphy topped the race by 1.83 seconds over Alabama’s Connor Oslin (45.32).  That’s nearly the record for the biggest margin of victory in a 100 back at NCAAs.  Brian Retterer of Stanford (45.43) beat Kurt Jachimowski of Auburn (47.35) by 1.92 seconds in 1995.

Murphy also has been super consistent in this event throughout the past two years. He owns five of the top 10 times all time.

The win is also Murphy’s third as he joins a select few with three or more victories in the 100 back. If he wins next year, he’ll join John Naber as the only men to complete a career sweep in the event.

Men’s 200 medley relay

Kristian Gkolomeev delivered a monster anchor of 18.00 to pull Alabama to its first NCAA relay win ever with a triumph in the men’s 200-yard medley relay at the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Gkolomeev, along with Florida’s Caeleb Dressel, turned in the first 18.00 splits as Alabama nearly broke the NCAA and U.S. Open record of 1:22.27 set by Michigan back in 2013.

Connor Oslin (20.86), Pasha Romanov (23.40), Lucas Kaliszak (20.02) and Gkolomeev (18.00) won the race in 1:22.28.  Alabama isn’t new to the NCAA title game, with 13 individual wins in program history, but the team has never won a relay title until tonight.

California looked to be in control, starting off with Ryan Murphy’s unreal 20.20 backstroke split, but Murphy (20.20), Connor Hoppe (23.29), Justin Lynch (20.02) and Tyler Messerschmidt (18.98) could not hold off the freight train that was Gkolomeev.

Texas’ John Shebat (20.94), Will Licon (23.30), Joseph Schooling (19.36) and John Murray (19.15) finished an unbelievable day for Texas with a third-place 1:22.75.

Florida’s Jack Blyzynskyj (21.20), Mark Szaranek (24.10), Jan Switkowski (20.13) and Dressel (18.00) turned in a fourth-place time of 1:23.43.

Louisville (1:24.08), Tennessee (1:24.11), Georgia (1:24.31) and Auburn (1:24.51) completed the rest of the championship heat.
