Stanford’s Abrahm DeVine was patient through the butterfly and took the lead on backstroke, never giving it back en route to his second-straight national 400 IM title.
Things got interesting late, with Cal’s Sean Grieshop charging home like an animal, but DeVine had built enough of a lead to keep Grieshop at bay. DeVine was about a second off his swim from last year, but remains the #2 performer all-time behind American record-holder Chase Kalisz.
Grieshop was a wicked 49.33 on freestyle, charging home to go 3:37.03. That should leave the Cal sophomore just outside the top 10 performers of all-time in the event, and represents a huge breakthrough season – Grieshop’s best time coming into the season was 3:42.0.
