I agree. The staff obviously does an incredible job, and the atmosphere is one that clearly breeds success. Kenyon will also bring in the type of swimmer who is intent on improving a lot as opposed to some swimmers who are going to d3 schools who might be fast and love the sport but might not be quite as focused on it.

Basically, Steen could rightfully win the coach of the year award award in any given year and should definitely win it on a regular basis, but I don't think that it should preclude other coaches from winning it when they have a great year and have built an excellent team that finished top 5 at the meet that year, as it the case of Kalamazoo, Olaf, Johns Hopkins over the last few seasons.

Check out the Williams website - Logan Todhunter has been nominated for the D III Woman Athlete of the Year. Reading the article certainly reinforces the judgment of the coaches in selecting her as the swimmer of the meet! End of argument.

http://williams.prestosports.com/sports ... f_the_Year

A few other observations on the national meet:
1. I thought I saw Zach Turk flinch at the start of the 100 free final. The two judges engaged in some non-verbal communication across the pool but let it go.
2. The walk-out music was spotty at best. "These Boots Are Made For Walking" was exceptionally corny at the start of the women's 1650 final heat.
3. Kendra Stern's 200 free was unbelievable. I don't think there was anything comparable to it on the men's side. I think it was the best single performance of the meet.
4. Broke my heart to see KZOO's relay DQ'd. It cost them dearly.
5. Great venue: good seating, great scoreboard. Campus being empty helped enormously.
6. Steen this, Steen that. Saw him publicly lace into his men's 200 free relay guys (after winning it), then later he rather publicly congratulated the 400 medley relay winners as they warmed down after winning. Tough love: it ain't for everyone.
7. Maybe those Wooster Scots should serve as hosts every year - they've got it down pat (hats off and thanks to Beloit too). But it sure would be nice if Woo U could get some swimmers into the meet...the alumni would love that ;-)

Not to bring this back to the guy's meet, but I would argue that breaking a 15 year old record (the 200 fly) is at least comparable to Stern's 200 free. 145 is cooking.
Adjusting expectations: so close to 500 posts!

I wouldn't say it's Wooster/Bel-wah as much as it is the UofMN. They are used to hosting big meets and have a great staff and great facility.

Whoever was in charge of the video feed and live results had a bit of a hard time, hopefully it will be a bit more reliable next year. I won't say "they sucked" because I know that stuff can be a bit of a challenge. At least it was free, unlike many of the jerk conferences charging for the live feed.

All the light and dark blue shirts working the doors, stop watches, baskets, copy machines, etc were organized by Wooster and Beloit.

The combined meet is a great atmosphere. I love the additional bodies, it makes the place sound packed. Stern's 2FR was sick, but Todhunters underwaters were amazing to watch.

Many people think Spain is here...
On the other hand, there is a school of thought that claim Spain is here...those people too are wrong.
Where is Spain? It could be...here? here? here?
