COLUMBUS, Ohio
– Senior Alex Meyer swam the second-fastest time in school history in the 1,650-yard freestyle, earning All-America status Sunday at the NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships.

Meyer, seeded with a time of 15:05.55, took over seven seconds off his seed time, finishing with a mark of 14:58.13 to take 14th place in the event. The senior becomes the first Harvard swimmer to earn All-America status in the event since John Cole ’05 attained All-America status at the 2005 championships.

Meyer was the lone Harvard representative at the 2010 event, held on the campus of Ohio State University.
