Castillo Luna, one of the top breaststrokers in the NCAA, dominated the field in 52.34 to come up just 2 tenths shy of his best. Teammates Austin Van Overdam and Jose Martinez each had big swims. Van Overdam chopped about a second and a half off his 400 IM to win in 3:44.70, while Martinez won the 100 fly in 46.12 to take over a second off his best time in the event.
