It’s not even the start of the second day’s finals, but it looks like Ohio State is slipping away with it at an alarming rate. The Buckeyes dominated this morning’s session and are projecting to score roughly 150 more points than the next best team, Indiana.
Maggie macneil It is the class of the field in the 50 free, but the 200 IM and 500 free are very crowded in A finals without a clear favorite. Meanwhile, as we watch the 1-meter dive and 400 combined relay finals run, the team race between Indiana, Michigan, Northwest and Wisconsin will start to get clearer. The 400 medley relay should also be a highly successful event among the top five teams.
