The Cards swept the men’s 200 back, led by Grigory Tarasevich (1:45.42), and Pedro Coutinho (48.14) led the Cardinal’s 1-2-3 sweep in the men’s 100 fly. Tarasevich also won the men’s 100 back (47.59). Louisville swept the women’s 200 fly, led by Abbie Houck (2:00.46), and Zach Harting took second in the men’s event (1:48.57).
