Texas historic men’s 100-yard fly, along with an amazing rest of the day, pushed the Longhorns out to a gigantic day two lead at the NCAA Division I Men’s Championships as Eddie Reese’s 11th career coaching title is likely a lock.

Texas finished the day with 399 points after claiming an NCAA record 92 points in the 100-yard fly with a historic top-four sweep.

The Longhorns certainly have a shot to crack into the top five point tallies of all time:

634 – Auburn – 2004
632 – Stanford – 1992
609.5 – Auburn – 2003
599 – Stanford – 1998
597.5 – Texas – 2001

Meanwhile, California stands second after day two with 275 points, while Michigan (210) and Florida (205) are battling for third.  Southern California is fifth overall with 197 points.

Men’s 200 medley relay

California put together a safe men’s 200-yard medley relay to win the finale at the NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

After clocking a sizzling American record of 1:22.40 this morning during prelims, and after witnessing plenty of disqualifications the past two days, California’s Ryan Murphy, Chuck Katis, Justin Lynch and Tyler Messerschmidt played it safe and still managed to win in 1:22.74.

That’s California’s fifth victory in the 200-yard medley relay all time. Other Cal wins:

2005 California (Milorad Cavic, Henrique Barbosa, Duje Draganja, Rolandas Gimbutis), 1:25.30
2010 California (Guy Barnea, Damir Dugonjic, Graeme Moore, Joshua Daniels), 1:23.08
2011 California (Guy Barnea, Damir Dugonjic, Graeme Moore, Nathan Adrian), 1:23.12
2014 California (Ryan Murphy, Chuck Katis, Tony Cox, Tyler Messerschmidt), 1:22.83

Alabama’s Connor Oslin, Anton McKee, Brett Walsh and Kristian Gkolomeev picked up second overall with a time of 1:23.35, while Texas’s Kip Darmody, John Murray, Joseph Schooling and Brett Ringgold snared third overall in 1:23.46.

Texas was the first team to crack 200 points as the Longhorns took a 203-159 lead over California after the event.

Men’s 400 IM

Texas’ Will Licon upset NCAA and American-record holder Chase Kalisz of Georgia in the men’s 400-yard IM at the NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Licon threw down a stunning time of 3:36.37 to move to fourth all time in the event’s history, while Kalisz settled for second with a 3:39.51, well off his NCAA record of 3:34.50.

Licon completed a sweep for Texas as the 400-yard IM had been the only event left on the schedule that the Longhorns had never won, along with the 500-yard free that Clark Smith cleared last night.

Georgia’s Gunnar Bentz took third overall tonight in 3:39.87 as Georgia claimed some big points.

Men’s 100 fly

Texas not only set an NCAA with the most A finalists in event with six this morning in the 100-yard fly, but the Longhorns made history with a 1-2-3-4 effort at the NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Texas’ Joseph Schooling (44.51), Jack Conger (44.55), Tripp Cooper (45.06) and Will Glass (45.56) went 1-2-3-4 with teammates Matt Ellis (46.12) and John Murray (46.72) taking sixth and eighth for the historic 92 points.

To our knowledge, no other team has ever gone 1-2-3-4 in a single event in NCAA history.  The last time a team went 1-2-3 happened in 1987 with USC going it in the 500 free and Stanford in the 100 fly.

USC’s Dan Jorgensen (4:16.25), Thomas Fahrner (4:16.31), Mike O’Brien (4:17.01) and Chris Chalmers (4:21.99) went 1-2-3-8 in the 500, while Stanford’s Pablo Morales (46.47), Jay Mortenson (47.09) and Anthony Mosse (47.72) went 1-2-3 for the Cardinal.

USC had held the previous record for dominance for a team in an A final with a 1-2-3-5 effort in the 1976 400-yard IM.  Rob Strachan (3:55.63), Steve Furniss (3:55.67), Scott Brown (3:57.88) and David Hannula (3:59.84) pulled off that feat with Tennessee’s Lee Engstrand (3:58.82) ruining the top-four sweep.

Other 1-2-3 efforts also happened in 1971 as Indiana posted a top-three sweep in the 200 back.  Gary Hall (1:50.60), Michael Stamm (1:51.47) and Santiago Esteva (1:52.22) put up those times.  The top-three sweep also happened in the 60s.  Yale did it in 1964 in the 200 free with S. Clark (1:44.4), D. Lyons (1:45.3) and E. Townsend (1:46.2) accomplishing the feat.

This is Texas’ sixth win in the event’s history.  Other Texas wins:

1981 Scott Spann, Texas, 47.22
2001 Ian Crocker, Texas, 45.96
2002 Ian Crocker, Texas, 45.44
2003 Ian Crocker, Texas, 45.67
2004 Ian Crocker, Texas, 49.07 *SCM

Schooling moved to second all time in the 100 fly, while Conger now stands third all time.

All Time 100 Fly

[table “” not found /]

Even more history was made as Schooling’s .04 win against Conger tied the record for the NCAA in the men’s 100-yard fly.

Iowa’s Rafal Szukala beat Florida’s Stephen Clarke, 47.43 to 47.47, back in 1994.

It is fitting that all of this history was made in the birthplace of the butterly.  Former Iowa coach David Armbruster is credited with creating the modern day butterfly back in 1934 here in Iowa.

The 92 points vaulted Texas to 315 points, while California was a distant second with 190 points.

Quintero threw down a time of 1:32.03 to move to ninth overall in the all time rankings for the victory.

That’s the eighth time a Trojan has won the award, and first time in 14 years as Klete Keller previously won in 2001.

1966 Roy Saari, Southern California, 1:44.66

Texas’ Clay Youngquist picked up third-place honors with a time of 1:33.10 as the Longhorns continued to pile onto their top team tally.

Texas led California, 337-211, following the 200 free.

2013 Kevin Cordes, Arizona, 50.74
2014 Kevin Cordes, Arizona, 50.04

Men’s 100 back

Out under American record pace, California’s Ryan Murphy settled for defending his 100-yard back title with the third-fastest time ever at the NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.

Murphy, who set the NCAA record with a 44.17 relay leadoff for California yesterday in the 400-yard medley relay, topped the finale in 44.21.  Nick Thoman’s American record of 44.07 for SwimMAC in 2013 still remains in the books.

Murphy joined Tom Shields as the only California Golden Bears to win the 100-yard back in two straight years.  Shields won in 2011 (45.02) and 2012 (44.86).

Stanford’s David Nolan, who won in 2013 with a 44.99, clocked a 44.78 for second to also move into a tie for seventh all time with Shane Ryan.

Ryan, meanwhile, snared third overall tonight in 45.24, while BYU’s Jake Taylor picked up fourth overall in 45.45.

Jack Conger added to Texas’ leading tally with a seventh-place 45.76.  The Longhorns had 362 points after the 100 back with California standing second with 249 points.

    Nice to see the kid from Western Kentucky get in the finals of 100 breast even if he is a German import and apparently Sr. Kalisz read Mr. Cummings’ remarks about ” bring off his game.” and took umbrage! In the 100 back Mr. Nolan must be buoyed by his win last night to qualify first and good to see BYU’s Jake Taylor make it into the Big Dance in his final NCAAs.

    Were I a betting man I might be tempted to,put a few farthings on the 200 IM record-holder to upset the NCAA record-holder but that’s about as likely as West Virginia besting Kentucky!

      Bill, Jake Taylor is still a junior, he should compete in NCAA’s next year bar any major unexpected circumstances.

      I was disappointed to see Cordes still over 50 in the BR. Still, not to take away from all he’s achieved.
