AUSTIN, Texas (November 30, 2016)--Preston Jenkins was a near school record in the 200 freestyle while competing in an 800 freestyle relay on Wednesday evening at the Texas Invitational.

Jenkins led the relay team in the first of four 200-yard segments with a time of 1:35.96. Jake Taylor still holds the record in the 200 free with a registered time of 1:35.03.
