King also combined with Jonathan Berneburg, Sam DiSette and Colton Stogner to close the meet with gold in the 400 freestyle relay. The win marked the third year in a row that Alabama has closed the championships with a 400 freestyle relay win and the second year in a row that Stogner has anchored the winning effort. Derek Maas, Jake Marcum and Berneburg also finished as finalists on the last night. Maas took sixth in the 200 breaststroke in a time of 1:55.30, Marcum was sixth in the 200 backstroke in a time of 1:41.73, while Berneburg clocked a 43.18 to finish seventh in the 100 freestyle.
