Three Meet Records Fall on Night 3 of UAA Championships

Three Meet Records Fall on Night 3 of UAA Championships

By Michael Grenon, Swimming World Contributor

Day 3 of UAA championships saw three new women’s UAA records and a shuffle in the men’s team standings heading into the final day of competition. The Emory women’s and men’s squads maintained their leads, while the NYU men edged ahead of Chicago and Carnegie Mellon jumped ahead of Case Western Reserve. The women’s team ranks remained intact from day 2.

The women’s 200 medley relay saw a dramatic come-from-behind win by Emory’s A team. Ellie Thompson (Sr), Lizzie Aronoff (Sr), Megan Campbell (So), and Fiona Muir (Fr) combined for a 1:43.79, just barely ahead of Chicago’s team who finished in 1:43.83. Chicago out-split Emory on each leg until Muir, last night’s 50 freestyle champion, split the only 22-second leg in the field to get the win by 0.04 seconds. Wash U’s team finished fourth in 1:44.31.

The men’s race saw a tight battle in the middle of the pool, with Wash U eventually touching first in 1:30.23. Their team consisted of the same Kevin Van Cleave (Fr), Michael Lagieski (Jr), Reed Dalton (Sr), and Ross Brown (So) who won the 400 medley relay for Wash U last night. Lagieski and Dalton would win individual events later in the session. Thomas Meek (Sr) helped Chicago finish second with another big anchor 19.4 split to finish in 1:30.69. Emory’s squad finished third with a 1:30.86.
