Florida, UGA wrap up Last Chance meet, await NCAA Championship

ATHENS, Ga. --  Conference champion Florida notched multiple NCAA provisional qualifying times and personal bests at the Bulldog Last Chance Meet. The two-day event served as the final opportunity for swimmers to post a swim that would qualify them for the NCAA Championships.

The Last Chance Meet operated as a time trial with no team scoring. If swimmers were unable to hit the automatic qualifying times they can still advance to the NCAA meet in events that are not filled up with the automatic qualifiers.

Following the SEC Championships, the Gators have qualified all five relays for the men’s and women’s teams, nine individual men and six individual women.

For host Georgia, Yousef Alaskari improved his NCAA provisional qualifying standard in the 200 butterfly with a time of 1:45.38. Derek Onken swam the 200 freestyle for the first time this season and earned a B cut, clocking in at 1:37.94. Nick Salyers improved his B-cut time in the 100 backstroke to 48.52.

"This weekend gave everybody a chance to put their suits on and race one more time," UGA senior associate head coach Harvey Humphries said. "We had some really pleasant surprises this weekend that make us realize we can be an even stronger team, especially in areas where we thought we might be a little weak."
