Swimming & Diving
Following the diving part of Friday’s meet with Incarnate Word, the Rec Center Natatorium's fire alarm went off, and the building had the be evacuated. After the teams were back inside, Incarnate Word received the news that two of their swimmers had tested positive for coronavirus, so they packed up and went back to San Antonio.

  • Despite the official meet being canceled, the Aggies still held an intrasquad meet.

Shaine Casas recorded the fastest time EVER in the men’s 100M IM at 46.33.

  • This time is not considered an “official” record, but it did break the American unofficial record, set by Matt Grevers in 2016 with a time of 47.06.
