Teenager Luca Urlando swam head-to-head with Olympic medalist Chase Kalisz over the back half of the men’s 200 fly final in Knoxville, and he did just enough to nip Kalisz at the finish. Urlando finished in 1:57.04, barely ahead of Kalisz in 1:57.12.

Fourth went to HPC-Ontario’s Mack Darragh in 1:59.47. Also breaking 2:00 were Cal’s Zheng Quah (1:59.59) and Athens Bulldog’s Pace Clark (1:59.83).

Cal’s Tom Shields (2:00.16), Dynamo’s Jay Litherland (2:00.20) and Mason Manta Rays’ Carson Foster (2:01.49) finished sixth through eighth, respectively.
