Prelims: Day 3 of NCAA Swim and Dive Championships
March 29, 2014
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.
