Thursday marked day 1 of the 2020 American Short Course Championships, a club meet that also serves as a last chance qualifier for local swimmers to try to make the cut for NCAAs. Texas’ John Thomas Larson had a breakthrough swim, posting a best in the 500 free for the first time since 2018. Larson clocked a 4:14.96 in prelims before going on to win the final in 4:15.71. He’s now 19th in the nation, including times from tonight’s Pac-12 meet.
