Keeping in line with the first 2 days of the meet, rising NC State sophomore Zach Brown won an event on day 3. Brown completed his sweep of the men’s fly events, winning the 100 fly in a personal best. He clocked a 53.81, beating his previous best of 54.31, and dipping under 54 seconds for the first time in his career. Brown’s 54.31 previous best was from 2017, as his fastest time from 2018 was 55.34.

Geena Freriks (Kentucky) won the women’s 400 free in 4:16.98. That time comes in nearly 9 seconds off Freriks best of 4:08.91 from last Summer, but was still good to win by over a second.
