      Before they had 5 relays it was not uncommon for someone from a team to swim all 3 relays in the finals. So has anyone done this since they had 5 relays – Test may have from JHU – can someone confirm and are there others. Not 5 relays at the meet but 5 that finished in the top 16.

      Well both Sam and Paul Gyorfi did it. In fact Sam just did it this past year.

      In the 2005 Lindsay Payne of Williams swam in all 5 relay finals and the relays came in 4th, 1st, 1st, 12th and 3rd.

      I actually believe quite a few swimmers have done it at NCAAs but almost no one does it at their conference meet. It really helps to improve 1/4 of your relay when that individual likely would not score in his/her 3rd event.

      Also, when a relay makes it in and the team doesn’t have many guys, someone with only 1 or 2 individual swims would do all 5 relays to try to get the team a few more points.

      Lloyd Baron did it his senior year and I believe they won all five. It was the year the meet was in Buffalo.

      I believe he split 19.55 on the end of the 200 MR (the record setting 1:28 relay), which might be the fastest d3 split ever.

      Notably: Ken Heiss did it in 1998.

      Lots of guys that aren’t scorers do it. Probably happens every year.

      give an example of non scorer that did it – you have to be pretty good/versitile to be on 5 relays.

      Jon Howell split 19.42…

      Sam Gyorfi, Wheaton… you don’t have the be that versatile, just a sprinter.

      OK lets go with big finals not banana heat – now how many make it just to keep the convesation active not to knock anyone.

      reason is you need to be at a stud school to final all relays AND in order to make all relays you need to be best sprinter/vesitile and can go a 200. There are a lot of 50 guys that can’t go 142 in the 200

      Wheaton did make the top 8 in all the relays last year, so Sam Gyorfi would be my final answer Regis.

      I misread the question. I see now that he asked “swim 5 relays in finals.” Yeah, that doesn’t happen alot. People do swim 5 relays every year, but that was not what he was asking

      Yeah like I said before above that Sam did it this past year and he was 8th in the 50 and 10th in the 100 free I believe.

      Paul did it and he ended up 2nd in the 100 fly to Duda, and 2nd in the 100 free to Courtney-Brooks.

      Yes I believe that Howell’s 19.4 is the fastest split in history

      Read Boon did it in 2002, and all of the relays won.

    • #30734

      Will Sutor from Gustavus did it a couple of years back, I know 4 relays were in the top 8, they might have had all five. He was second in the 100 fly that year.

      I was watching in the stands in 2005 in Michigan that year and I remember Sutor getting All-American in all 5 relays that year–I think he was the only one to do that in that year. How many other times has someone FOR SURE placed in the top 8 in all 5 relays? I also remember Gustavus barely missing a touchout of Kenyon in the 200 Free Relay and Sutor just missing a win in the Fly just like Anderson of UWSP last year in the 100 Breast.

      I would have to look back but if Wheaton’s 800 FR was top 8 the year that Paul Gyorfi was a senior then he was one who did it for sure. I think however that they may have been 10th in that relay. He was 2nd to Duda in the 100 fly 48.6 for Duda 49.0 for Gyorfi, and he was second in the 100 free 44.8 to COurtney BRooks who was 44.4 I believe. Their 200 FR, 200 MR, 400 FR, and 400 MR were all top 8.
