Crimson Tide Swimming:

The two-time defending Southeastern Conference 100 backstroke champion heading into this week, Alabama swimming and diving senior Connor Oslin made it a three-peat Friday evening, clocking in at 44.73 at the Allan Jones Aquatic Center on the University of Tennessee campus.

"That was an adrenaline pumper,"
UA head coach Dennis Pursley said. "To have three in the top four of an event and to have two under the old SEC record is pretty spectacular. With those swims and more, I'm not sure we could have asked for more."

Oslin broke Ryan Lochte's 2005 SEC Championship record of 45.19 as well as smashing his own school record of 45.08 in the event. The Kennesaw, Ga., native was the No. 1 seed after the morning prelims with a time of 45.29. Oslin finished more than a quarter of a second ahead of the field.

At the end of day four, Alabama's men maintained their fourth place rank with 562 points while the women are 10th with 282 points.

Prelims for the championships' fifth and final day get underway Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, with Alabama competing in the 200 backstroke, 100 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, 1,650 freestyle and men's platform diving.
