Auburn doing well again at NCAA swimming meet


"(This) sets me up pretty well," Nolan said. "Just kind of use this positive energy to keep moving forward. This morning (fourth in prelims) hurt a little bit more than I expected, but you've just got to bounce back and hope your training will take care of it. And it did. Just keep a good attitude and let your teammates take you under their wing and cheer you up. That kind of thing."

In the meeting of 2012 Olympic teammates, Stanford's Kristian Ipsen set an NCAA record in 1-meter diving with a score of 473.75 points. Duke's Nick McCrory was second in 436.60. Ipsen didn't even know he broke the record until his media session.

"I had no idea, going into a meet I can't really think about that kind of stuff," Ipsen said about the record. "But that's really cool. That's exciting. (McCrory and I) are both incredibly competitive. In any competition, we're going to be competitors. We're not going to act like friends, but directly after we're friends again. And before, too. It's cool. It's nice having someone like that, that totally gets diving and everything."

Auburn's 200 freestyle relay team broke out a "U-A!" cheer on the podium after it won in front of a rowdy group of supporters in the stands. The Tigers finished in 1:15.48 to easily beat USC, second in 1:16.22. Michigan was third in 1:16.49.

In the final event, Arizona won the 400 medley relay in 3:02.09. California was second in 3:04.46, followed by Michigan in 3:04.73.
