At the conclusion of the men’s NCAA championships, Texas head coach Eddie Reese discussed the Longhorns’ third straight NCAA title in video interviews with Swimming World.
During the interview with Reese, the coach revealed that Joseph Schooling became sick after his 100 fly prelim swim and still decided to give the 200 fly a go. Reese did not give any more details on the illness. Schooling was the two-time defending champion in the 200 fly, but he finished 37th in prelims.
Schooling, however, ended up being healthy enough to split a 41.02 on Texas’ meet-ending and victorious 400 free relay.
Reese also reflected on his three seniors that broke records (Will Licon, Clark Smith and Jack Conger) and explained why each NCAA championship feels different.
Also hear from Licon and from Smith after they each set American records on the way to individual victories on the final night.
