U.S. National Teamer Kevin Cordes of the University of Arizona set the NCAA, U.S. Open, American and NCAA Championship meet record in the 100-yard breaststroke twice Friday at the NCAA Men’s Division I Swimming and Diving Championships in Indianapolis. He set the first in prelims, touching in 50.93. He then shattered the mark again in finals, turning in a time of 50.74.

Cordes was one of three U.S. National Teamers to win individual events on the second night of NCAAs.
