Manhattan, NY
January 31, 2015

Cam Levins started out with a bang in the first big pro meet in the US in 2015.

Centrowitz (2:49.47), Berry (46.40), Sowinski (1:47.60) and Casey (3:56.48) all did their jobs perfectly as they crushed the old WR of 9:25.97 set by the 2008 Texas squad that included Leo Manzano. Ireland also dipped under the old WR in 9:25.37, while Kenya was a nonfactor despite a 3:52.33 anchor leg from Lawi Lalang.

Nice wins by Ajee Wilson and Jordan Hasay at the pro season got underway in full swing.
