Mens NCAAs- Day 1 Prelims

Post by JHUBreaststroke06 » Thu Mar 15, 2007 11:14 am

Some impressive morning relays. 1:21 from KC is nuts with a 21.1 lead off. Mitchell going 19.7 is nuts. I guess he retapered well. We will see if they can replicate tonight.

My boys from JHU were great. Fedderly and Thomas had awesome splits. If they get a better front half tonight, look out.

GCC looked a bit off this morning but will be there tonight.

Emory missed finals by .01. ouch.

On a Fantasy note- My 200 FR already is 20.6, 20.3, 20.2, 20.2. Nice
I might be old and retired, but I could still swim a mean 25 Breaststroke if I got a relay start.

Man that Kenyon free relay was moving this morning. Harris with a big 20.1 split. I look for him to have a big meet. How about Amundson's 20.5 lead off. Look out.

How about that 500 from Rantz? I realize it's too early to derive such conclusions, but if that swim is any indication, Kenyon has the meet in the bag.

Rantz negative split his 250's also. Huge swim for Curtis and Spinelli also, but Bryce missed the championship final. Kenyon is on fire right now. Dunn 4:26, maybe that mile record goes after all.

This meet is OVER. Peterson missing finals and KC having 3 up, 1 down. Good night. Northcutt going 4:31, rantz 4:27. are you kidding. That 500 was fast top to bottom. I think the pool is good. haha

Yes very fast, but if you look at the bottom of the page, you will notice that Bobby Brown went about 4:42 in the 500. Wow off a whole lot, Scarborough also had a rough swim.

KC was moving on that relay. They look ready to play. I know they have emotion and preparation on their side. Not many D-III swimmers have ever split under 20, so that was a strong race.

That 500 is ridiculous: 4:31.5 just to get into the bigs and 4:35 into the consies??!? Glad I am retired years hence! Kenyon is three up and one down, while Denison is 1st, 9th and 11th. Emory has two in the bigs.

I am looking forward to more fast races.

BTW: As an Emory historian (and alumnus), I think Callum's lead-off is a new varsity record for the Eagles. Great swim! Hopefully faster in the event prelims!

Well I am guessing we see Nelson Hop in and go about 1:49 high hear in the next couple of minutes.

They have had every person swim a PR, they are gonna have a ton back in the IM. This is absolutely nuts.

When Jim Steen woke up this morning I am pretty sure he was hoping for this kind of morning. They are really swimming well.

I dont even think he could have been hoping for this. This is just unprecidented in swimming, even for Kenyon.

Seventh place is about as close to not making the Champ final as Nelson probably wanted.
Once a competitive swimmer, you can become anything.
