The Auburn women's team, which was sparked by Ava Ohlgren's third SEC title in the 200 individual medley, is in third place with 254 points. Florida is in first with 312 and number one ranked Georgia is second with 260.5. Ohlgren's time of 1:55.18 was a James E. Martin Aquatics Center record.
In the men's 50 freestyle senior Jakob Andkajaer was second in 19.05 followed by two more Tigers, junior Gideon Louw in 19.28 and sophomore Kholton Norys at 19.51. Those three Tigers joined Targett to easily win the 200 freestyle relay to close Thursday's competition.
"Matt is definitely going fast," said Auburn co-head men's coach Brett Hawke. "He can go faster. We shaved him down for this meet, but we didn't rest him. He's definitely got more in him. He's been working hard all year. I'm certain he's going to go under that record."
Another highlight for Auburn on day two was junior Dan Mazzaferro winning the three-meter diving competition with a score of 420.90 with teammate Kelly Marx second at 418.05 with a career-best score.
AU diving coach Jeff Shaffer said, "Awesome, just awesome. What a great contest that was. You had to fight and claw for every point. Nobody had it won until the very last dive was done."
The competition in Auburn will continue through Saturday night as the AU men's team goes for a 13th consecutive SEC title.
