Tucson, AZ -

 

Another NCAA Championship and another record setting performance by Arizona junior Kevin Cordes. Cordes shattered his own American, U.S. Open, NCAA and school records in the 100 breast with a time of 50.04 to lead the Wildcats on day two of the NCAA Championships at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center on Friday.
 
"It never gets old," Cordes said about winning so many titles. "It's what you work for the whole year. The team works for it. I'm really excited to bring another one back to Arizona. I'm pretty excited so far. It's not over. We still have a lot of work to do but it's really a good feeling."
 
Cordes now owns the four fastest times for the event in history. His prelim time of 50.55 broke his previous record time of 50.70, which he set earlier this year at the Texas Invite. He has now won the NCAA title in the event in each of his first three years at Arizona.
 
Senior Giles Smith followed with a fourth-place finish in the 100 fly with a time 45.43.

In the 200 Medley relay however Smith left the platform too soon as Kevin Cordes was finishing the second leg and UA was disqualified.

Arizona is seventh in the team competition after two nights with 135.5 points. Texas remains in front with 318.5 points, while California (312.5) and Florida (279) round out the top-three.
 
The final day of competition will continue tomorrow with the 1650 free, 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, platform diving and the 400 free relay.
