Not counting the 1,650-yard freestyle or platform diving, U-M will return 10 up/5 down to tonight's finals. On the same day last year, U-M went 11 up/4 down.
Dylan Bosch reset his Big Ten, Big Ten Championships and U-M records, while establishing a new pool record in the 200-yard butterfly (1:40.37). Bosch came into the meet with the nation's top time in that race (1:41.01, set at Winter Nationals in December) and cut nearly seven tenths off that time on Friday. That time was the prior Big Ten and U-M record. The previous Big Ten Championships record was 1:41.18 that Bosch set last year as a freshman (he won the conference title). The old pool record was 1:43.65 set by Alex Vanderkaay in 2008.
He will be joined in the 'A' final by three others: Kyle Whitaker (1:42.44), Peter Brumm (1:44.03) and John Wojciechowski (1:45.06). All three of those men and Bosch will return to the championship heat of the 200-yard butterfly after also making it last season.
U-M will return five to the 200-yard breaststroke tonight, including three in the championship final. Richard Funk was third in prelims (1:54.88), Matt McNamara was fifth (1:55.81) and Chris Klein was eighth (1:57.00). McNamara obliterated his previous career-best swim, going from 1:58.76 to 1:55.81. He was 20th in the same race last season. Paul Corbae (1:57.11) and Kyle Duckitt (1:57.17) narrowly missed the championship heat but will be the top two seeds in the consolation final.
Bruno Ortiz (42.67) and Michael Wynalda (43.29) will represent U-M in the championship heat of the 100-yard freestyle, while Justin Glanda (43.42) and Hassaan Abdel Khalik (43.66) will be in the consolation heat. Ortiz was just two tenths-of-a-second off of the U-M record of 42.46, which Gustavo Borges set in 1994. It's the longest-standing remaining record in program history.
Diver Timothy Faerber made his third championship final of the weekend, finishing eighth in platform preliminaries (351.75). James Ross also made a consolation final (289.80). With Ross scoring points in the consolation final, every member of U-M's team at the Big Ten Championships will have scored points for the team.
