Mar 24, 2017

​What a race! As expected, ​Townley Haas, ​​Dylan Carter, ​and ​Blake Pieroni​ separated themselves from the field early on. Carter of Southern Cal looked great through the 75, crushing Haas off the walls and underwater. But Townley out-swam him on the surface. Flipping first at the 100 in 43.74, Haas was able to hold off Carter and a hard-charging Pieroni to take the win in 1:30.65 -- just two tenths of a second off of his all-time record of 1:30.46 from 2016. Carter and Pieroni ended up tying for second in 1:31.16 and ​Dean Farris ​of Harvard touched for fourth in 1:32.25.​
