PALO ALTO, California, August 6. A foursome from SwimMAC put together a meet record in the men's 400 medley relay to conclude the USA Swimming Long Course Nationals.

Tucson Ford's Cory Chitwood (56.06), Clark Burckle (1:02.28), A.J. Tipton (53.40) and Matt Grevers (48.08) finished second in 3:39.82, while Stanford's Matt Thompson (56.97), Curtis Lovelace (1:01.24), Bobby Bollier (52.87) and Alex Coville (48.98) took third in 3:40.06.

Club Wolverine (3:40.36), SwimMAC B (3:41.12), Stanford B (3:44.06), Ohio State (3:44.63) and Trojan (3:44.70) made up the rest of the top eight.
