Men’s 200 Medley Relay

NCAA Record: 1:26.74 – Sage Ono, Andrew Wilson, Christian Baker, Oliver Smith (Emory – 2016)
2016 Champion1:27.94 – Ben Lin, Jake Tamposi, Tim Kostolanksy, Alex McCarter (Williams)

Oliver Smith brought home Emory’s Division III NCAA record-setting relay in a blazing 18.99. Their overall time of 1:26.14 won the event by over two seconds. Sage Ono (22.27) led off the team followed by Wilson (23.16) and Baker (21.72).

Denison and Washington University took distant second and third places at 1:28.89 and 1:28.99, respectively. The Kenyon team of Ben Baturka, Trevor Manz, Jonathon Zimdars and Weston Carpenter was able to win the consolation final after finishing outside the top eight this morning. Their time of 1:29.26 would have placed fifth, just .01 behind Williams. This would have made the point deficit 10 points smaller headed into day 2.

MIT, Rowan and NYU were all disqualified in this event, the latter two teams in the consolation final. Emory currently holds the lead with 135 points while Kenyon sits second with 103.
