Conor Dwyer of Trojan Swim Club jumped out to the early lead, with Clark Smith of Texas in tow. The Woodlands’ Michael McBroom inched his way up from seventh to third to second, then made his move over the final 100 meters to claim the win with 3:49.04. Dwyer finished second in 3:49.90, a mere .06 in front of Smith. Top qualifier Jordan Wilimovskyof Team Santa Monica placed fourth in 3:51.64.
