Carter helps USC to freestyle relay silver
T&T’s Dylan Carter swam the second-leg to help the University of Southern California to a silver medal in the men’s 400 yards freestyle relay final when the Texas Hall of Fame Swimming Invitational Time Finals concluded in Austin, Texas, on Saturday night.
In addition to Carter, the other members of the USC Trojans relay quartet were lead-off man Santo Condorelli, Ralf Tribuntsov and Justin Nguyen as they combined for a time of two minutes, 50.64 seconds, an NCAA A cut to trail winners’ Texas University (2:49.80) while Stanford ‘A’ took bronze in 2:51.00 flat.
On Friday night, Carter just missed out on a medal when he placed fourth in the men’s 100 yards backstroke A-final in 46.05 seconds behind Matt Grevers (44.92), Zachary Poti (45.43) and Austin Katz (45.48).
In the morning heats, Grever was also the fastest qualifier in 45.44 ahead of Poti (45.97) and Carter (45.98).
Carter also placed fifth in the men’s 100 yard butterfly A-final in 45.99 seconds. Joseph Schooling won gold in 44.78 followed by Jack Conger (45.32), Andrew Porter (45.75) and Andrew Liang (45.87).
Earlier on Friday in the heats, Carter was the seventh fastest in 46.44 seconds.
On Thursday, Carter took second spot in the men’s 50 yards freestyle B-final when he touched the wall in 19.58 seconds behind Conger who won in 19.56 while Harvard’s Dean Farris took third in 19.68.
A member of the T&T swimming contingent at the last Olympic Games in Brazil, Carter missed out on qualification to the A-final when he ended tenth best from the field of 103 swimmers in 19.71 seconds, just outside of Stanford’s Sam Perry who touched the wall in 19.66 for the eight and final qualifying spot to the A-final.
