    Eric Ress enters the evening as the second seed in the 200 backstroke, swimming a 1:39.25 to win the final heat. That is the third-fastest time in school history. James Wells also swam the final heat, finishing eighth in 1:43.87.

    With that swim, the top five times in Indiana history in the 200 backstroke, all from Ress, are under 1:40.

    Cody Miller raced out to the second seed in the 200 breaststroke, clocking a time of 1:51.85 in the last prelim heat. That is the second-fastest time in school history and the second time Miller has clocked a time under 1:52.

    Steve Schmuhl took down his second school record of the meet, posting a 1:43.10 in the 200 butterfly, good for eighth and a spot in the championship final. That bests his previous mark of 1:43.33 set at the Big Ten Championships last month.

    Schmuhl now has the five-fastest swims in IU history in the 200 butterfly. It goes along with his record-breaking performance in the 400 individual medley on Friday night.

    In the final race of the morning, Anze Tavcar, Wells, Max Irwin and Jackson Miller placed 26th in the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 2:56.03.
