Jacob Molacek has announced that he will be transferring to North Carolina State after spending his first two years at Auburn University.

While swimming for Creighton Prep at the 2014 Nebraska High School State Championships, Molacek set the National High School record in the 100 breaststroke as the first high schooler under 53 seconds.

The Greater Omaha Aquatics swimmer headed to Auburn in the fall of 2014. As a freshman he was an All-American. He left the program this spring at the end of his sophomore year.

Molacek will have two years of eligibility with the Wolfpack. His best 100 breaststroke is a 52.45, swum in his first year at Auburn.

At the 2016 ACC Championships, Molacek would have won the 100 breaststroke had he been in top form. His 19.44 50 freestyle would have finished third in an event dominated by the Pack. In the 100, his lifetime best of 42.85 would have tied for third. NC State won the ACC Championships last year.

At NCAAs, the team finished fourth. In the 400 medley relay then junior Derek Heren split a 52.25 on the breaststroke leg of the eighth place 400 medley relay.
