Alabama Swim Star Sets School Mark
Hornikel posted a career-best 42.46 in the finals of the 100 freestyle, posting his fourth personal best in a month and breaking the Alabama mark set by four-time Olympic gold medalist Jon Olsen in 1991. The junior tied Olsen's mark during prelims with a 42.69. Hornikel was seeded 17th in the 100 freestyle coming into this year's championships after posting a then career-best 42.87 at the Southeastern Conference Championship in February.
Hornikel now has a trio of All-American honors after earning honorable mention accolades in the 100 freestyle in 2012 and in the 200 freestyle on Friday. His finish in the 100 freestyle earned the Tide 14 additional team points for a total of 20 on the week. He also took 11th in the 200 freestyle at these championships on Friday with a career-best 1:34.44 and 21st in the 50 freestyle on Thursday, the meet's first day.
