Two Indiana men’s swimmers set pool records; Brendan Burns in the 200 Fly (1:43.18) and Gabriel Fantoni in the 100 Fly (46.09). In his first-career dual meet, Freshman Carson Tyler set a pool record in the 3-Meter Dive with a 408.00, beating out the 396.85 standard that Purdue’s Joey Cifelli established on January 30, 2016.
Indiana swimmers totaled nine NCAA B cut times. Brendan Burns, Brearna Crawford and Gabriel Fantoni each recorded two qualifying times. IU divers combined for 15 NCAA Zone Qualifying scores.
Indiana divers finished top two in all four events. On the women’s side, Tarrin Gilliland and Anne Fowler finished No. 1 & No. 2, respectively, in the 3-meter, then switched positions in the 1-meter. An IU diver has won the top spot in seven of eight events so far this season.
