Also on the podium, Brewer claimed third in the 500-free at 4:29.36. He is joined by sophomore teammate Stephen Blaauw in seventh at 4:36.83. 

In the sprints competition, junior Liam McCallum took fifth and sophomore Nick Kenny tenth in the 50-free, respectively. McCallum clocked in at 21.12 seconds and Kenny at 21.30. 

Rounding out Friday night's qualifiers, two relay teams made their way to finals of the 200-free relay. McCallum, senior Jack Hartwell, senior Mark Raybukh and Kenny came in sixth at 1:25.76, and sophomore Kye Daniels, freshman Andrew Meneses, junior Thomas Hamburger and junior Chase Ahrens came in 17th at 1:29.83.
