Louisville men beat ACC conference, meet 200 Medley relay record

The Louisville men kicked off night three of the ACC championships with a meet and conference record in the 200 medley relay clocking 1:21.84.

The team consisted of Mitchell Whyte, Evgenill Somov, Dalton Lowe and Abdelrahman Sameh. They broke the previous conference record that was set by Louisville during the NCAAs last year with a time of 1:22.11. They also won the NCAA at the event while setting the previous record.

The biggest difference between the two was the butterfly leg as Lowe was 0.57 seconds faster tonight than Albiero was at the NCAA last year.

They also broke the meet record of 1:22.37 that NC State broke in 2019.

Notably, the NC State relay was disqualified tonight after an early start. NC State had touched second place just behind Louisville in a time of 1:21.88, which would also have broken the previous meet and conference record.

The biggest difference between the two records was the breaststroke leg, as Somov was 0.42 faster tonight than Graber in 2019. Elaraby and Ress shared almost exactly the same 50m freestyle as they were just 0 .01 seconds apart.

The relay will look to defend its NCAA title next month.
