Not to be outdone, the Queens team of Zach Bunner (21.74), Fedyna Rostyslav (23.83), Paul Pijulet (20.76), and Ben Mayes (19.62) set their own NCAA record in the men’s 200 medley relay prelims, posting a 1:25.95. That just snuck by Wayne State’s 2014 record of 1:26.04, making them the first Division II team to swim under 1:26.

The team from Fresno Pacific was back in second with a 1:27.90, while Grand Valley State University was third in 1:27.98. Notably, the teams from Bloomsburg and Limestone tied at 1:28.95, requiring a swim-off for who will make it into the championship final tonight.
