Checking out NCAC. Some decent swims but I wonder how much Denison and Kenyon tapered.

Another major conference meet the UAA.

I suspect like Denison and Kenyon some of those middle distance/distance didn't fully rest given the mid-year taper times.

Makes me wonder how much better it would be if NESCAC could combine men and women. Of course we'd need a Denison-type facility.

Talk about a top heavy conference.

200 IM.....Denison and Kenyon have 10 of top 11 finalists .......8 B cuts plus more.....see below***
50 Free....13 of the top 14
etc.

***And.....unlike NESCAC's championship, apparently NCAC allows teams to bring their full squad to race though it appears only a defined 24 can score. 40 out of 41 Kenyon / 49 out of 50 Denison male swimmers have raced so far, many only posting exhibition times and competing in their non scoring B relays

500 free......4 exhibition swimmers achieved B cuts
200 IM ........1 exhibition B cut
50 free.........2
400 IM.........4
100 fly.........1
100 breast.....2
so far

No stone left unturned for this pair of schools in their quest to qualify as many NCAA swimmers

This conference championship also has NCAC Time Trial Cut times
and
Kenyon hosts a last chance meet next week

-------------

I have mixed feelings on their Championship structure.......half championship / half time trial for two teams.
Reminds me of the English Premiere League where the rich teams create rules and payout structures specifically for their benefit.
Do the major D1 swim championships incorporate similar rules allowing massive teams to take over the pool decks & lanes during their championships?
Pretty incredible so many quality swimmers flock to these two schools given the intrasquad competition and lack of relay opportunities for so many quality Breast, Fly, & Back swimmers who would be stars in other programs.
