BATON ROUGE, La. – The LSU Men’s Swimming and Diving team completed the first day of NCAA Championships at the Jamail Texas Swimming Center in Austin, Texas.
 
Frank Greeff set a career high in the 200 IM with a time of 1:46.23. His previous personal best was 1:46.25 set at the 2014 SEC Championships.
 
“Frank had a solid start,” LSU Swimming coach Dave Geyer said. “ Putting up a personal best in his first race is a great sign for the remainder of the meet.”
 
In the 200 freestyle relay, the team of Marco Gonzalez, Tyler Crosson, Alex Linge and Michael Saco just missed a birth in the finals with a time of 1:18.30.
 
“We left some chips on the table that unfortunately we won’t be able to cash in,” Geyer said. “We only get one shot in the morning and we came up just short today.”
 
Greeff will compete in the 100 butterfly during day two of NCAA Championships. The junior’s time of 46.80, set at the 2014 SEC Championships, is the third-fastest time in program history.
 
Prelims of NCAA’s begin at 11 a.m. each day. Finals will follow at 7 each evening.
 
Live video of all preliminary rounds in addition to the day one finals will be available at TexasSports.com.  ESPN3.com and the WatchESPN mobile application will offer live video to subscribers during the day two and day three finals sessions.
 
Live results for the championships will be available at www.NCAA.com.
 
A full recap will be available on lsusports.net at the conclusion of each day. For more information and updates on LSU Swimming and Diving please visit LSUsports.net, ‘like’ us on Facebook at LSU Swimming and Diving or follow us on Twitter @LSUswimdive.
