Virginia Tech commit Ryan Vipavetz won his first national title in the 200 butterfly to close out the 2018 US Winter Nationals on Saturday night in Greensboro. Vipavetz won the final with a 1:59.43 ahead of Scarlet’s Dare Rose (1:59.98).

Those two were the only ones under two minutes in the final as it was a very evenly matched final. The eight swimmers were separated by two seconds from this morning’s prelims. Indiana commit Brendan Burns finished in third at 2:01.09.

Alex Colson (2:01.55), Tim Slanschek (2:02.21), Noah Bowers (2:02.24), Clay Hering (2:03.76) and Harry Homans (2:04.36) also swam in the A-Final.
