Crooks advances from NCAA 50 Free prelims

Arguably, the biggest collegiate event in history is in full-swing. Representing the Cayman Islands and the University of Tennessee is top superstar Jordan Crooks, who is hoping to add more silverware to his collection.

The Tennessee sophomore enters the 50 free final later today as the top seed after putting down a time of 18.25 seconds in the prelims at 2023 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships.

Prior to that, he, along with teammates Björn Kammann, Michael Houlie and Gui Caribe clocked a 1:21.59 in the 200-medley relay to earn sixth and All-America first team honors at Minnesota’s Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center.

Joining Crooks in the finals tonight at 5:03pm are Bjorn Seeliger in lane two, seeded at 18.46, Jack Alexy fifth at 18.77. Defending champion Brooks Curry earned his lane in the A final in fourth in 18.72, a spot behind Florida’s Josh Liendo.
