Day 3: 2017 Division I Men’s NCAAs

By Reach for the Wall staff.

Scroll down and note that swimmers from our area finished among the top 3 swimmers in every event this evening on Day 3 of the 2017 Division I Men’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships (March 22-25) in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Wow!

The Texas Longhorns (391.5 points) extended their lead over California (2nd with 253 points), Florida (3rd with 224.5 points), and North Carolina State (4th with 196 points) with one day to go.  At this point, it looks like it’s just a battle for second place.
