Men’s 1650 Free

NCAA Record: 14:56.44 – Arthur Conover, Kenyon (2016)
2016 Champion: 15:06.97 – Andy Greenhalgh, Johns Hopkins

Kenyon’s Arthur Conover earned back his national title in this event from 2015. After finishing third as a freshman and second as a junior, Conover’s time was just off his NCAA record but enough to take the win for the Lords. He was challenged by Johns Hopkins’ Andy Greenhalgh over the last 500 yards, but Greenhalgh ran out of room to make a move. Greenhalgh was last year’s champion after earning runner-up honors the two years prior.

Thomas Gordon had a big swim for Emory moving up from the fourth seed to finishing third. His time of was a best by over twenty seconds. Freshman Benjamin Brewer of Cal Lutheran earned his first All-American title by racing to a 15:28.80 and earning fourth place. Brewer will be part of the future of this event as Conover and Greenhalgh (and all four of their historic NCAA miles) will be graduating this year.

Williams’ Andrew Trunksy, another freshman, took fifth-place honors dropping 12 second (15:31.22) while classmate Ben Culberson of Claremont Mudd-Scripps took sixth in 15:32.19. Both swimmers earned their first individual All-American titles after earning one in the 800 free relay as well. Kenyon duo David Perez (15:32.41) and Connor Rumpit (15:35.06) took seventh and eighth.
