Feigen, who won a silver medal in the 50m freestyle Thursday evening, took second in Friday’s 100m freestyle final in 48.99, just behind the winning time of 48.87 turned in by Weber-Gale, a gold medalist in the 400m freestyle relay at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

UT rising junior Austin Surhoff placed eighth in the 200m individual medley finals in 2:02.40. Surhoff claimed the NCAA title in the 200-yard individual medley as a freshman in 2010
