Stanford sophomore Ella Eastin won her second event of the meet in the 200 fly after she won the 400 IM last night. Eastin got some pressure early from early leader Katie McLaughlin of California. Eastin won the race thanks to a strong last turn at 1:51.35. McLaughlin was second at 1:52.37 and is now tied for 11th all time in the 200 fly with fellow Golden Bear Dana Vollmer. Virginia got big points from Jen Marrkand and Kaitlyn Jones finishing third and fourth at 1:53.15 and 1:53.19 respectively.

Texas also had some big points in that race, but sophomore Remedy Rule ended up disqualified for a 15m violation after originally placing third. Maddie WrightLauren Case and Sarah Gibson also swam in the A-final. The team race got a little bit more interesting as Texas is only 15.5 points ahead of Georgia for fifth place. Neither team will score points in diving, so barring a relay disqualification from Georgia, they will pass Texas for fourth place. The Longhorns did not place in the top eight in the last relay and Georgia is the top seed there.

This was Stanford’s 11th overall win in the 200 fly, the most of any school by far. Eastin joins Elaine Breeden (10, 09, 07), Shelly Ripple (02), Misty Hyman (01, 98), Janel Jorgensen (93, 90) and Summer Sanders (92, 91) as winners for the Cardinal in the event.
