Florida men’s swimming and diving wins three titles on second day of NCAA Championships: Yesterday, the Gators won their first-ever national 200 free relay title. Caeleb Dressel also picked up a national title in the 50 free, becoming the first male swimmer to win that title four times. Dressel broke his own American record three times in one day, and passed Ryan Lochte for most titles on men’s side. In the 200 IM, Jan Switkowski claimed the first individual national championship of his career, posting a personal-best time of 1:39.54. Competition continues through Saturday.
