Hard to tell whether he was off or if he thought he was going faster when he was winning the unseeded heat. Either way, definitely a surprise to see him out of the top 8.

I don't think he likes the 500 this year. He will be fine in his other events.

The announcer's ability to pronounce names of people/schools is not all that impressive. I am thinking Nguyen and Grinnell specifically at this point, but there have been others. I might have heard a "John Hopkins" and also a CMU flub in there...

Crazy how close the IM was this morning. Gladys and Bateman, two of the favorites, miss the top heat by .01 and .02 seconds, respectively. Should be interesting to see the wall of 8 people coming home tonight in that top heat.

The 200 IM was pretty slow. I am surprised no one managed to break 1:50.

I disagree. It was WAY faster than last year.

200 IM was actually faster than last year though. Gladys was 150.3 last year, but then it took 151.92 for 8th and 153.06 for 16th. 8th place in the 500 was a couple seconds slower this year though.

Monster swim out of Chris Depew. I am sure the fact that his brother who is a senior in HS and went 1:49.4 in the IM at IHSA state meet may have motivated that swim

Cheadle- his brother is also going to swim at Redlands next year. That's going to be a monster relay since he comes in with a 50 point or faster in the backstroke whereas their current guy on their relay goes a 54 to fill out a 325 medley.
