​​​Caeleb Dressel​ has done something that only Caeleb Dressel can do -- make an 18.23 50 freestyle seem pedestrian. Dressel was out 8.80 to the feet at the 25 and blasted home to take the win, matching his time leading off the 200 freestyle relay earlier in the session and only three one hundredths of a second off his all-time record of 18.20. ​Ryan Held ​of NC State crushed his underwaters to take the silver in 18.60, a swim that he seemed very pumped up about post race. ​Joseph Schooling ​of Texas picked up major points for the Longhorns finishing third with an 18.79.​
