Texas A&M’s Sarah Henry powered through the final leg of her 400 IM to win the NCAA Title with her time of 4:02.47. She dropped close to half of a second to win tonight’s race.
Georgia made a huge move in team scores by finishing second and third in this final. Hali Flickinger almost ran down Henry in the final 25 but finished second at 4:02.73, dropping almost two seconds from her morning swim. Her teammate, Amber McDermott, finished third at 4:03.34. That could have been the bump Georgia needed to stay with California.

Minnesota’s Brooke Zeiger was sixth at 4:05.27, Amanda Carner from Tennessee was seventh at 4:05.97, and Jessica Thielmann from Florida rounded out the final with her time of 4:07.55.
Nevada’s Yawen Li dropped close to two seconds to win the B final of the 400 IM with her time of 4:05.56. California’s Kelly Naze also made a big jump from 8th to 2nd in the heat with her time of 4:07.07.
