Queens’ Marius Kusch won the men’s 100 free at the 2018 NCAA Division II Championships in record-setting fashion.

The junior stopped the clock in a quick 42.42 to finish well over half a second ahead of the field. His time broke the previous Division II record of 42.61 set by Wayne State’s Andrey Seryy back in 2012.

This is Kusch’s fourth individual title–and seventh overall–of the meet after claiming victories in the 200 IM, 200 free and 200 fly, as well as the 4×50 medley relay, 4×100 medley relay and 4×200 free relay. His 200 IM time of 1:41.61 is also a new Division II record.

    The previous record holder, Andrey, was our Masters Coach and now it’s much more clear why he kept telling us to swim faster. We didn’t know how fast he was…
