An NC State recruit, Hayes took the race out in 24.47, and came home in 28.23. You can see Hayes’ race in the tweet below.

Arkansas Dolphins 16-year-old Youssef Bahgat came in 2nd in the race, swimming a 1:54.46. That swim was also a giant drop for Bahgat, whose previous best came in at 1:57.02.

Kate McCarville, Tennessee recruit and Springfield Aquatics 17-year-old won the women’s 400 IM decisively, roaring to a 4:49.13 finish.
