Texas Swims NCAA Record in 800 Free Relay


The final event of the first night of the 2023 NCAA Men’s Championships is  800 free relay.

The NCAA record coming into the meet was 6:03.89 set by Texas last year. The record didn’t last.

This year’s Longhorns saw to that.

Texas won the 800 free relay in 6:03.42, holding off a late charge by Leon Marchand and Arizona State (6:05.08). The performance broke the NCAA, American, U.S. Open, meet and pool records.

Texas won the event for the 17th time overall and fourth time in a row, this one coming on the 35th anniversary of the program’s first 800 free win.

“We thrive off training and racing with each other,” Carson Foster said.

The Longhorns had a big lead for most of the race before Marchand dove in as the ASU anchor. He made up ground with every turn, but was about one length short on his chance of passing the Longhorns.

 

Texas sophomore Luke Hobson split a 1:29.63 to open the final heat, giving the Longhorns the lead. They would need every inch of it.

“It was great to get under 1:30 for the first time,” Hobson said. “I am really happy for that, getting the ball rolling for the meet. I just wanted to give these boys the best lead possible. It is a good confidence boost.”

Coby Carrozza dove in second for the Longhorns and split a 1:30.50, adding to the Texas lead.

“I had the best split of my life. Luke gave me some clean water,” Carrozza said. “That was nice, and I just got to enjoy the race and have fun.”

Peter Larson was third for Texas and split a 1:33.14, followed by Carson Foster, who anchored with a 1:30.15.

“I dove in and I slipped or something. I didn’t really think about it, it was just about finishing it,” he said. “That is my third fastest and I am good with that.”

The Longhorns needed every bit of the lead as Marchand anchored in 1:28.42 to close the gap.

“I couldn’t have been set up any better than I was,” Foster said. “At NCAAs, you always expect to have a neck-and-neck race, but these guys gave me such a big lead. I didn’t have to do anything superhuman. My job was to swim a smart race and get to the wall first.”

Arizona State was second with Grant House (1:31.92), Patrick Sammon (1:32.78), Julian Hill (1:31.96) and Marchand.

Cal was third in 6:06.41, followed by Indiana (6:07.97), Florida (6:08.79), NC State (6:09.38), Stanford (6:11.49) and Auburn (6:11.64).

Cal was third with Gabriel Jett (1:31.35), Lucas Heneveaux (1:31.90), Patrick Callan (1:33.63) and Destin Lasco (1:29.53).

In the second heat, Auburn used a late anchor charge to get to the wall first, in 6:11.64, ahead of Alabama (6:12.66), Georgia (6:12.69) and Virginia Tech (6:14.96).

Notre Dame won the first heat in 6:14.39, ahead of Virginia (6:16.91).
