Men’s 400 IM – Texas Invite – as reported by SwimSwam

 Arizona’s Michael Meyer won the 400 IM one night after winning the 200 IM, and he also put up the third fastest time in the NCAA in the process. Meyer went 3:41.73 to blow away the field, leading by nearly 3 seconds before the race was even half over. The battle for second was between Brigham Young’s Hayden Palmer and Arizona’s Sam Rowan; Palmer was the runner-up in 3:45.38 and Rowan took third with a 3:45.54. Eric Solis was fourth for Arizona, going 3:47.10. David Moore out of Incarnate Word (which is making its transition to Division I starting this year) won the B final with the fifth-fastest time of the night, going 3:47.16 and beating last year’s NCAA runner-up Michael Weiss.
