California’s Ryan Murphy, Chuck Katis, Justin Lynch and Tyler Messerschmidt set the American record in the 200-yard medley relay to start the NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Murphy (20.82), Katis (22.64), Lynch (20.33) and Messerschmidt (18.61) clocked a sizzling time of 1:22.40 this morning to down the American record.

That’s the fastest breaststroke split in history for Katis.

California held the previous American mark with a 1:22.83 from the 2014 NCAA Championships with Murphy, Katis, Tony Cox and Messerschmidt in that event.

Michigan still holds the NCAA and U.S. Open mark with a 1:22.27 from the 2013 NCAA Championships.

Southern California’s Luca Spinazolla, Morten Klarskov, Dylan Carter and Santo Condorelli claimed second this morning with a 1:23.90, while Alabama’s Connor Oslin, Anton McKee, Brett Walsh and Kristian Gkolomeev qualified third in 1:23.96.

Texas’ Kip Darmody, John Murray, Joseph Schooling and Brett Ringgold earned the fourth seed in 1:24.00.
