The next day in a Gallaudet win over Bridgewater, Tikhonoff added three more individual wins and was a member of the 200-yard medley relay team that earned first place. Tikhonoff’s winning time in the 200-yard butterfly of 2:13.50 was a new personal record for the 2017 NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year.
