It hasn’t taken long for Ella Eastin to make an impact on college swimming. The Stanford freshman notched an ‘A’ time standard in the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 1:54.53.

Eastin wasn’t the only swimmer to earn an ‘A’ cut in the women’s 200-yard individual medley event. Bethany Galat of Texas A&M made the time standard by just over one-tenth of a second and finished second in the race.  

Stanford started off the evening with a win in the 200-yard freestyle relay. The Cardinals notched an ‘A’ cut and defeated second place Texas A&M by nearly two seconds. LSU won the men’s event, out-touching Air Force.

Sarah Gibson of Texas A&M won the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 4:42.43. Bence Kiraly of Utah won the men’s event with a time of 4:16.79.

After Eastin and Galat’s 200-yard individual medley race, Brandon Goldman of LSU won the men’s race with a time of 1:46.46.

Beryl Gastaldello won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 21.86. Gastaldello’s time was exactly that of the ‘A’ time standard. Alex Linge of LSU won the men’s event with a time of 20.01.

Stanford earned an ‘A’ time standard and won the 400-yard medley relay by over three seconds. On the men’s side, LSU took the 400-medley relay title.
