3 legged ponies

So maybe what you want to say (about swimming) doesn't quite fit into one of our other categories. This is the place for you.

3 legged ponies

Post by DonCheadle » Mon Oct 04, 2010 12:07 pm

I was looking at the results from the Rowan / Army swim meet. Rowan had three sprinters who were pretty fast (two 22 low flat starts and a 21.8 relay). I don't know if they have a 4th, but it appears that have 3/4 of a 1:23 low 200 free relay.

At Kzoo we have had problems with the freestyle anchor on the medlies for the 15 years (until recently). 3 guys who would score in their respective stroke, and then a freestyler who struggled to break 22 / 47. Yuck. Any other examples of this?

Best example from recent years is the Northwestern medley of Grevers/Alexandrov/Bubolz/ random anchor.

I agree. With rounding their 400 medley was like 45/51/45/44

rowan has a 4th, bill malone. hes been down to a 21 low flat start, and it looks like their two freshman are thereabouts. they will need tim dimond on the longer relays and backstroke for the medleys, i think.

I do not like collegeswimming.com's meet results. Too hard to read. Anyhow, what is their best relay?

St. Xavier is a swimming powerhouse, I thought? Looks a lot more like an awesome medley relay.

Yes, but for a HS team to have a 23bk, 22fly and 19 free, even though it's fast, that 27 br got carried to a state title.

For some reason I didn't see that you said it was a medley.

Anyways, I agree. Definitely the weakest leg, but still a 27 in high school isn't too shabby.
