STANFORD, Calif. – Junior Abrahm DeVine, sophomore True Sweetser and senior captain Sam Perry are set to compete in the FINA World Championships next week in Budapest, Hungary.

Perry, a 12-time All-American at Stanford, earned a place in four events at the World Championships in April at the New Zealand Open Championships. A native of Hamilton, New Zealand, Perry equaled the 22.47 time standard for the 50-meter freestyle.

He was one of four Kiwis to break the 50.00 mark in the 100-meter freestyle (49.48), good enough for the top four and a place on the 400-meter freestyle relay team. Perry also qualified in the 100-meter butterfly.

Stanford qualified two more swimmers at Phillips 66 National Championships in Indianapolis in June. Sweetser, an All-American in both distance freestyle events as a freshman, punched his ticket in the 1,500-meter freestyle (14:59.73) on the opening night of the meet.

Sitting in eighth place at the 400-meter mark and sixth at the 500-meter mark, the Gainesville, Florida, native stormed past the field to seize the lead with 100-meters to go and never looked back.

On the final night of the trials, DeVine turned heads by beating most of a loaded field to qualify in the 200-meter individual medley in second place. The seven-time All-American (1:56.79), who hails from Seattle, Washington, lowered his preliminary time (1:58.77) by nearly two seconds in the finals, coming from behind with a 27.81 freestyle leg, the fastest in the field.

A full breakdown of events for DeVine, Sweetser and Perry is below, while live results will be available throughout the meet at
