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.
