INDIANAPOLIS – UMBC junior Mohamed Hussein (Cairo, Egypt/Victory College) reset another one of his school records and finished 37th overall while competing in the 200-yd freestyle, Friday afternoon on Day Two of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships at the IU Natatorium.
Hussein finished fourth in heat two of seven with a new personal-best time of 1:36.55, just edging his previous school record mark of 1:36.83.
Southern California’s Cristian Quintero posted the top time of the round by clocking in at 1:33.21 while Dax Hill of Texas claimed the final spot in the finals with a time of 1:33.88.
