Women's Third Day

Postby Nescacfan » Fri Mar 20, 2009 7:13 am

200 Fly: This is Logan Todhunter's strongest event. Her 53 in the 100 fly suggests a 1:56 or below in the 200. Williams teammate Bonnie Patchen should provide Wiliams a 1/2 finish in this event. Brady and Arad of Kenyon will battle it out for third and fourth.

100 Back: Sasser's record is safe this year. Denison's Zaleski had the fastest opening leg in the 400 Medley Relay--55.49. She is clearly the favorite in this event.

100 Breaststroke: Payne's record is also safe. I look for it to be a battle between Kenyon's Vereshchagin and Menzel. Neswim has been touting Vereshchagin all year. I'm pretty sure he has an inside look at Kenyon. I'll go with Vereshchagin.

800 Free Relay: Amherst has won this event the past three years. Their record will be eclipsed tonight, but not by them. Kenyon, Denison and Emory will battle it out for the win. I'll take Emory because Horvat and Westby will both be under 1:50; Tripp and Mroz will be 1:51's. Watch for Kendra Stern to set a new record in the 200 free in her opening leg of this event.

I don't see Vereshchagin beating Menzel in the 100 breast. Menzel is the much stronger sprinter. She split 101.7 in yesterday's relay as opposed to Vereshchagin's 103.1. Vereshchagin will have an awesome 200 tomorrow and should be... 214?

The 800 relay will be an exciting race but I'm guessing Emory will easily take the top spot. I don't think any of their girls have any other swims today so they should be plenty rested for it. Will be interesting to see whether Kenyon goes with Brady (who has a 200 fly) or Vereshchagin (100 br) for their 4th leg... I don't think Arad makes this relay.

No, it will be Menzel.....probably 1:02 but a 1:01 high is not out of the question. She will have better turns today. The 200 is different story and one for tomorrow where I expect Vereshchagin to win with 2:15 or faster.

Ok, it looks like Menzel in the 100 Breast and Vereshchagin tomorrow in the 200 Breast. Kenyon could have three swimmers in the championship final tonight with Seltzer having a good shot at joining Menzel and Vereshchagin.

Apart from Todhunter, the 2fly is embarrassingly slow. What the hell happened in this event? 205.6 is 8th? Maybe it's an off year, but I thought the suits would help that a bit.
Adjusting expectations: so close to 500 posts!

Todhunter lowers her 200 fly record to 1:57.71. She will go even faster tonight. Nearest competitor is 6.5 seconds behind.

Patchen added time. She came in seeded at 2:01.

The women's 800 free relay tonight.

Best 200 times this meet. Estimated times for Horvat, MacLaverty and Brady
Emory:
Westby 1:48.80
Tripp 1:51.52
Mroz 1:51.96
Horvat 1:50.00
7:22.28

Amherst;
K Stern 147.67
M Stern 1:50.32
Lee 1:52.90
MacLaverty 1;53.00

7.23.89

Kenyon:
Ertel 150.59
Oliveira 151.55
Meirs 1:51.99
Brady 1:52.50

7:24.19


What about my estimated times for the fourth swimmer?
If Horvat goes under 1:50, the race belongs to Emory. I think Kendra Stern will lead off for Amherst and go a second faster tonight than she did last night [1:46]. That will put Amherst in the lead after the first leg. Can Lee and MacLaverty keep it close for Meaghan Stern? M. Stern is swimming well this meet and could easily break 1:50 in the anchor leg. Does Emory start with Horvat and end with Westby? Will it be Ertel leading off for Kenyon with Meirs as anchor. Who can best swim against K. Stern in the opening leg?

Todhunter and Pachen go 1/2 for Williams in the 200 fly. Todhunter was on record pace for first 150, but didn't quite lower her prelim time.
