DAY 2 RESULTS l LIVE RESULTS l LIVE VIDEO l WEEKEND SCHEDULE

Two nights, two records. Safe to say, it's been a good weekend for Teo D'Alessandro.

One night after breaking his own Princeton record in the 200 IM, the Princeton sophomore set a team record in the 400 IM and helped the Tigers to a comfortable lead after two days of the 2013 Big Al Open. Princeton has 895 points, while second-place Dartmouth has 659 points.

There are seven events remaining; Sunday prelims will begin at 10 am, while finals start at 5 pm.

The 200 medley relay quartet of Michael Strand, Jack Pohlmann, Harrison Wagner and Connor Maher opened the night session with a victory in 1:27.06. Princeton had two teams in the top three, as the quartet of Andrew Helber, Marco Bove, Brooks Powell and Jeremy Wong placed third in 1:30.24.

D'Alessandro set his second school record in as many nights by winning the 400 IM in 3:47.22, edging the record time of 3:47.86 set by Colin Hanna in 2009. Senior Daniel Hasler (3:55.59) and freshman Sam Smiddy (3:57.46) made it a 1-2-3 finish for Princeton in the event.

Junior Harrison Wagner was Princeton's lone championship qualifier in the 100 fly, taking seventh in 49.57. Junior Michael Strand added a win in the 'B' final in 47.63.

Senior Mark O'Connell won the 3-meter final in his last Big Al Open, taking the win with 359.15 points. Freshman Nathan Makarewicz took fourth with 308.30 points, while junior Michael Manhard finished fifth with 284.55 points.

Sandy Bole and Conner Jager went 1-2 in the 200 free, with Bole taking the win in 1:37.92. Jager placed second in 1:39.76. Pohlmann and Hasler followed with a 2-3 finish in the 100 breast; Pohlmann went 54.82, while Hasler followed in 56.24.

Sophomore En-Wei Hu-Van Wright (47.99) and Maher (48.48) followed with another 2-3 finish in the 100 back, but Princeton bounced back with a 1-2 finish in the 800 free relay. D'Alessandro, Wong, Maher and Bole took the win in 6:29.67, while Hu-Van Wright, Bove, Jeffrey Williamson and Julian Mackrel followed in 6:40.72.
