Cayman Islands News, Grand Cayman sports news(CNS): After two and a half days of the four day competition at the SEC Conference Championships, both Shaune and Brett Fraser have automatically qualified for the upcoming NCAA Championships while swimming for the University of Florida Gators, Swim Coach Dominic Ross reports. On Day one, Shaune and Brett both formed part of the 800Freestyle relay which in dominating the event, also set the SEC Meet record and qualified for the NCAA’s.

Shaune also swam the butterfly leg of the 200 Medley Relay team which finished second in the event behind Auburn University and also qualified for the NCAA Meet.

Day two saw Shaune grab an individual title in the 200IM ahead of teammate Omar Pinzon, both meeting the NCAA automatic qualifying time in that event. Brett swam in the finals of the 50Free, finishing 5th in a strong field. The brothers then both stepped up again on their schools relay team, this time the 200free relay, with the team finishing third in that event.

 

The heats of day three saw them both making their way through to the night’s finals. Brett in the 200free and Shaune in the 100fly, where they will both look to improve upon their morning positions and score valuable points for the Gators on Friday evening.

 

The University of Florida currently trails Auburn University by only 9 points in the overall standings with the host Georgia Bulldogs a not too distant third.

 

The Competition concludes on Saturday when Brett will be contesting the 200 backstroke and 100 freestyle and Shaune the 100 Free and 200 Butterfly events.
