    Brandon Kingston, Boffa and David Williams all qualified for the finals of the 200 freestyle. Kingston swam the second-best time in school history (1:36.91) in the preliminaries, and took home a fourth place finish in the finals. Boffa placed sixth in the finals, while Williams took seventh. Williams' time in the preliminaries (1:37.04) was good for the fifth-best all-time.
