The final day of the NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships is upon us.

The heat sheets have been released for the final morning of the meet.

Texas freshman Austin Katz has the top seed in the 200 backstroke with Harvard’s Dean Farris right behind.

In the 100 free, Florida’s Caeleb Dressel is, of course, the top seed at 40.87 at least a half-second ahead of Texas junior Tate Jackson and the rest of the field.

In the 200 breaststroke, Ian Finnerty, the 100 breast champion, has the top seed and is looking for the double.

In the 200 butterfly, Indiana’s Vini Lanza has the top spot as the Hoosiers look to remain in the team race.

The final event is the 400 free relay and the top seed is the NC State Wolfpack.

Later in the day, the 1650 free will begin with NC State’s Anton Ipsen as the top seed, while Michigan’s Felix Aubock, South Carolina’s Akram Mahmoud and Stanford’s Grant Shoults loom.
