i can see chao or lacky taking lardiere, Emory's sprint falls off after they graduated Callam '06 and awkwardly tall Sloan.
We'll see what the Dec invites bring... I don't see that in the 50 or 100, thus far... Lardiere so far has both of them beat by at least 1/2 second to this point in both of those. Also depends whether he does a conf or NCAA taper....

Looks like Leckey/Chao both might have a shot in the 50/100 at Lardiere. ALso Beyer's 1:38 makes a WashU sweep of the sprint frees very feasible. That is, if they all re-taper for UAAs and not swim through to NCAAs.

They won't retaper for UAA's.
Jim Halpert: One day Michael came in, complaining about a speed bump, on the highway... I wonder who he ran over then.

In a way that's ashame. They'd be great races to watch with all tapered together. NYU did their normal untapered december meet this weekend. Even though Lardiere got all B cuts in free and fly with 100 free as a Q time, it might be unsafe for him not to taper for UAAs seeing as how fast the total field seems to be this year.

Nationals has always been Wash U's focus. The only way Shively would taper you for UAA's again is if the team really needed to get someone to nats on a relay and he couldn't do it without tapering someone. Even then, it'll only be a short taper.

As for Lardiere, agreed that it would be unsafe for him not to taper again. Anything but an A cut is unsafe.

Let me clarify... Lardiere has not seen a taper or tech suit yet. Looks like both will be critical at UAA.

From Emory's web site:
Emory University’s Claire Pavlak recorded two NCAA ‘A’ cut times and eight ‘B’ cut times at the Miami University Invitational. Pavlak recorded a pair of ‘A’ cut times in the 50-yard freestyle, swimming a mark of 23.61 seconds in the preliminaries, and 23.60 seconds in the finals, good for a third-place finish. The freshman helped set a school record as part of the 200-yard freestyle relay team, as the squad swam a ‘B’ cut time of 1:35.44. Pavlak also recorded ‘B’ cut marks in the 100-yard backstroke, the 100-yard freestyle, and as part of the 200-yard and 400-yard medley relay teams, helping the second-ranked Eagles to a fifth-place finish.

Sorry - misread your question.
In November Westby was 23.73/51.69 against Georgia, 1:54 in a meet with Davidson and 58.7 in the Fly in a third meet.

normally i'd agree, but im wondering what kinda of power play Howell is going to make. Diggs and Milburn (2 and 3 respectively at nationals in the mile last year) qualified for the mile at their midseason taper meet, BUT it isnt fast enough for the top 8, putting them somewhere in the banana heats. I know milburn crushed those heats last year, but who knows, if he had been in the big heat, would the results been different? Im sure these two seniors would like to take down a legacy, if its not the 29 year streek, why not the 16+ one. Anyways, heres what i can see howell doing:

1. let diggs and milburn set the tone in the banana heat, swim off each other, and hope Smith wont beat it. or (less likely)
2. retaper for UAAs, to qualify for a better spot, risk taper for nationals, (or really doubtful, but still a possibility)
3. rest for a jan/early feb meet for a better position, enough time for a good taper for nationals.

No, John Petroff won both the 100 and 200 flys last year. But he's already been sub 50 and 1:50 this year, so I don't think he'll retaper for UAAs. Last year at UAAs he went 50.2 and 1:52, and I'm assuming those were tapered, but who really knows.

Stabell and Wang haven't made A-cuts this year, so they will probably need them, so I bet they taper for UAAs to get them. Or maybe they'll taper for an earlier meet to try and get them (like for Hogan, mentioned previously).
