Texas senior Will Licon picked up his second individual title of the weekend in the 100 breast, just out-touching Missouri’s Fabian Schwingenschlogl at 50.68 to Fabian’s 50.77. This is the first time Licon has swum the 100 breast at the NCAA Championships, electing for the 400 IM in recent years. Licon used that distance background to out-touch Fabian at the last stroke to dethrone the defending champion. Licon and Schwingenschlogl are now second and third fastest all-time in the event.

USC sophomore Carsten Vissering finished third at 51.40 for the highest finish in his career. California’s Connor Hoppe, Auburn’s Michael Duderstadt, Virginia Tech’s Brandon Fiala, Duke’s Peter Kropp and South Carolina’s Nils Wich-Glasen also swam in the A-final.

Texas now has seven NCAA titles in the 100 breast. Licon joins Brendan Hansen (2001-2004) and Kirk Stackle (1989, 1990) as winners in the event for the Longhorns.
