Nova Southeastern freshman Anton Lobanov might not have won as many titles as Queens’ Matt Josa, but he certainly has had better top-end swims with his breaststroke sweep at the NCAA Division II Championships.

After jumping to sixth all time in the 100 breast, Lobanov followed that up by vaulting to eighth all time in the men’s 200-yard breast with a ridiculously fast 1:51.71.

That swim dropped five seconds from his prelim swim of 1:56.91, and smashed the NCAA D2 record of 1:54.45 clocked by Nicholas Korth of UCSD a year ago.

Notably, Queens’ Nic Eriksson (1:55.65) and Cal Baptist’s Nikolay Klepikov (1:56.32) took second and third, while Queens still held the team lead 409.5-377.5 against Drury.

    These all-time rankings should list the year, as well, or have an asterisk next to rubber suit performances.
