This week’s Performance Of The Week, sponsored by LumaLanes, goes to senior Mauro Castillo Luna for his standout performance in the 200 breaststroke in Texas A&M’s historic dual meet win against the University of Texas.

The senior won the 200 breast in 1:55.93, the only swimmer under 2:00 in the event. That gives Castillo the fastest time in the country this year by almost a second. Castillo is the highest returning finisher in the 200 breast from 2017 NCAA’s, where he finished 3rd (1:52.09) after posting a school record of 1:52.01 in prelims. That was the highest finish by a male Texas A&M athlete at NCAA’s since 2000.

The senior won a two other events in addition to the 200 breast, also notching individual wins in the 100 breast (53.70) and 200 IM (1:47.54) while splitting 24.29 on the winning 200 Medley Relay.

Congratulations Mauro Castillo on earning Swimming World’s Performance of the Week!
