  • NCAA ‘A’ Cut – 3:39.16
  • 2021 NCAA Cutline – 3:45.67
  • Pool Record – 3:35.29
  1. Carson Foster (Texas) – 3:37.35
  2. Jake Foster (Texas) – 3:40.56
  3. Braden Vines (Texas) – 3:42.92

The Longhorns swept the top three spots, led by Carson Foster‘s 3:37.35. Foster improved on his 3:38.68 from this morning, and still ranks 2nd in the country behind ASU’s Leon Marchand, who went 3:35.62 two weeks ago. Foster’s lifetime best of 3:35.27 makes him the 2nd-fastest performer ever in the event, and in between those two, defending NCAA champion Bobby Finke, and plenty of other great 400 IMer in the field, this should be a great race come March.
