COLLEGE STATION, Texas, March 20. WHILE Georgia held tough for quite awhile, California's Dana Vollmer put the exclamation point on an NCAA and U.S. Open record in the 800-yard freestyle relay to complete the second night of action.
Cal's Sara Isakovic (1:43.15), Hannah Wilson (1:44.15), Liv Jensen (1:43.64) and Vollmer (1:41.75) connected to post a 6:52.69 that crushed the NCAA and U.S. Open record of 6:54.02 set by Auburn at the SEC Championships last month. Auburn's time will still stand as the American standard.
In addition, Liv finished third in the consolation final of the 200 Free with a lifetime best 1:44.81.
