Harvard junior Dean Farris continued his incredible meet at the 2019 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Austin, Texas as he swam a 40.80 to win his second individual title of the weekend. Farris held off a hard charge from Minnesota senior Bowen Becker (40.83) who gave Farris everything he could handle the final 25.

Farris moved up to third all-time in the 100 free as Becker moved up to fourth.

Indiana senior Zach Apple (41.45) placed third for the Hoosiers as he was just off his best time of 41.36 from 2018.

The youngest in the final was freshman Daniel Krueger (41.56), who placed fourth for the Longhorns. Texas is 53 points out of first place as they are scratching for everything they can get to win a fifth straight team title in their home pool.

Cal picked up points from Ryan Hoffer (41.82) and Pawel Sendyk (42.06) in sixth and eighth.

Alabama’s Robert Howard (41.75) and NC State’s Justin Ress (42.00) also swam in the A-Final.

Harvard now has three NCAA titles in the 100 free as Farris joins the likes of Charles Hutter (1936) and Henry Dyer (1957) as winners of the event for the Crimson.

      Stephen Appelbaum Saliskar from Cal won it (probably rightfully) but Farris was my choice
