‘Horns off to the races at Men’s NCAA’s
By Reach for the Wall Staff Writers.
ATLANTA – The 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming & Diving Championship began Wednesday at Georgia Tech’s McAuley Aquatic Center in Atlanta. The Texas Longhorns, the defending champions and #1 ranked team, got off to a good start towards winning their 12th national title as their 800 free relay team set an NCAA record with a time of 6:08:03. PVS standout, Jack Conger, swam the first leg of that winning Texas relay team, and another PVS great, Andrew Seliskar, swam the third leg of the 4th place Cal Bears relay team.

You missed pvs great John Shebat also swimming Texas lead off leg first place 400 medley relay for NCAA and US open record, and 3rd place 200 medley relay.
Thanks! This article was published after the first day, before the 400 and 200 medley relays. But, not to worry – we feature John Shebat and many other PVS swimmers in our NCAA wrap up (see http://reachforthewall.com/2016/03/27/pvs-swimmers-shine-at-ncaas/, including the photo of Shebat and Conger and the video of their comeback win in the 400 medley relay).
