Men’s 400 Medley Relay

NCAA Record: 3:12.96 – Ono, Wilson, Cooper, Kolleck (Emory, 2017)
2016 Champion3:15.20 – Anderson, Manz, Josephson, Duronio (Kenyon)

Once again, the dream team of Sage Ono, Andrew Wilson, Christian Baker and Oliver Smith came together to break the D-3 NCAA record in the 400 medley relay.

Of course, Wilson had the split of the night with a 50.27 breaststroke leg. That’s nearly what some teams had as their fly leg let alone breaststroke. But another notable split on this relay is Oliver Smith’s 43.33. Smith has always struggled at the 100 distance compared to his 50; he has only been 44.34 compared to his 19.55 sprint.

Ben Lin was just off his 100 back split from this morning, and recent NCAA Champion and record holder Evan Holder split a great 53.05 breaststroke leg for Johns Hopkins who took third.
