Cal’s Trenton Julian was first at the halfway mark at 46.64 while Louisville’s Nicolas Albiero was 5th at 47.40.

In sum, we know they're doing hard work--certainly broken down at this point in their training cycle. "…
 
We sat down with the University of Cincinnati's NCAA qualifier in the 200 backstroke, Blake Hanna. Looking at Blake's times, specifically his 1:40 in the 200 backstroke, you'd think that he was highly recruited coming out of high school. Turns out, he was barely recruited at all and therefore didn't end up swimming for a team straight out of high s…
