Grant House Lowers 200 Free Again, Now #6 Performer All-Time with 1:30.23


Men’s 200 Freestyle:

  • A Standard: 1:32.05
  • B Standard: 1:36.32
  • Pac-12 Record: 1:30.14, Andrew Seliskar, Cal, 2019
  • Pac-12 Championship Record: 1:31.07, Andrew Seliskar, Cal, 2019
  • 2021 NCAA Invite Time: 1:34.04

Top 3:

  1. Grant House (ASU) – 1:30.23
  2. Preston Forst (STAN) – 1:32.48
  3. Trenton Julian (CAL) – 1:32.54

ASU’s Grant House isn’t done improving in the 200 free. After swimming a huge new personal best of 1:30.54 in the 200 free leading off the 800 free relay on Wednesday night, House undercut that time tonight, winning the Pac-12 title in 1:30.23.

The swim marks yet another ASU program record and a Pac-12 meet record. He was again just off Cal alum Andrew Seliskar‘s Pac-12 conference record of 1:30.14, which he swam at the 2019 NCAA Championships. With the swim, House now moves up to #6 all-time in the SCY 200 freestyle. Here is the newly-updated list of all-time top 10 performers:

Rank Swimmer Time Meet
1 Dean Farris 1:29.15 2019 NCAAs
2 Kieran Smith 1:29.48 2021 SEC Champs
3 Townley Haas 1:29.50 2018 NCAAs
4 Blake Pieroni 1:29.63 2018 NCAAs
5 Andrew Seliskar 1:30.14 2019 NCAAs
6 Grant House 1:30.23 2022 Men’s Pac-12 Champs
7 Zach Apple 1:30.34 2019 NCAAs
8 Drew Kibler 1:30.39 2021 NCAAs
9 Shaine Casas 1:30.59 2021 NCAAs
10 Dylan Carter 1:30.95 2017 NCAAs

Additionally, House is now the fastest performer in the NCAA this season, edging out Florida’s Kieran Smith, who has been 1:30.42 this season. House and Smith are the only swimmers in the NCAA this season who have been under 1:31.

Here is the split comparison between House’s swim on Wednesday night, and his race tonight:

Split 800 Free Relay Lead-off – 2022 Pac-12

3rd 50 23.25 23.08
4th 50 23.51 23.51
Final Time 1:30.54 1:30.23

Compared to his previous best from Wednesday night, House was just a tick faster on each of the first 3 50s of the race, and matched his split exactly on the final 50.

How great it is for Grant that he has the opportunity to climb up this list as an NCAA student-athlete, while simultaneously working toward ending the NCAA and college swimming as we know it. The sport of swimming should not celebrate this boy.

Record in the pool and record for the biggest ego interview. All that talk for the team to get 3rd out of 6 teams in the Pac 12. Classic ASU

Did Doconc just comment about an anonymous internet commenter being bitter?

Woof. Talk about lack of self awareness.
