Why aren't the results being updated real time? What happened in W 500 Free prelims?

smoking fast! Check out the app meet mobile. It's all there. For the ladies, Sarah Thompson and Rebecca Upton had the two fastest swims of the morning in the same heat. Thompson the leading qualifier at 4:47.67 and Upton right behind at 4:48.14. For the men the times were simply on fire, with Andrew Greenhalgh of JHU almost taking down the D3 record in prelims with a 4:21.85 (yikes!). Six guys broke 4:26 in prelims.

Meet Mobile was working in real time for me. The 500 prelims were flying this year after a couple of years with poor depth after 2009. The times have finally gotten back down there on the men's side. Remember that on the women's side a 4:57 could win around 8 years ago.

All around the meet is shaping up to be extremely fast. Not a single weak race looking at tonight's lineup.

Denison Men continue their new tradition of 9th place relay finishes.

Wilson split 28.80 on his BR split in his IM, then came back and was 23.83 on his relay. has anyone every broken 24 before today at D3?

I believe the current NCAA record relay had a sub 24 split from Collin Ohning.

Exactly. Gary Simon's record from 1998 in the 200IM finally goes down, and I counted three or four guys who went under that record. Wasn't that the oldest record in the book? Was it expected to fall this year?

I think Dennis Mulvhill still has the NCAA Record in the 200 Free 1:36.6xish (from 1988 I'm guessing?). It's not the meet record because back in those days the d3 champ could move on and swim at the d1 meet. But to my knowledge it's still the open record. That said, it's likely not to be standing after tomorrow.

I want to say Marc Courtney-Brooks has the meet record (1:36.9x) from 2004ish.

Austin Calldwell swam very close to the 200 free record at the NCAC meet. Hope he gets it tonight.

That was unbelievable. Amazing. We'll see if Williams - who now hold the national record - can hold off Emory tonight - and Kenyon,, who will have Curley leading off. It ought to be fantastic.

The real surprise of the morning was #1 seed and defending champ Kirsten Nitz DQing the 100 fly. Brutal.

While the Wms women have won the 4MR and held the national record before, I don't think the men ever have. They got four very strong swims this am but certainly Tamposi can go faster. I think but I'm not sure that Nanda gave them a PR relay split in prelims.

Did anyone notice that Emory put 4 women in the championship final of the 200 free and 7 of the top 21 swims in the event? I hope no other team thinks they have a chance in the 800 free relay tomorrow. Wow.

Denison sees diving pay historic dividends - sweeps diving 1-3. Impressive.

The Williams men won the 400 MR in 1982 (Sommer, Rowley, Aronson & Regan) at Washington & Lee. If I remember correctly, Williams was even leading Kenyon after the first day! Another fun fact (for me, anyway) is that current Amherst coach Nick Nichols won the 200 IM and 100 back at the meet.
