      Anyone heard anything? I thought a breastroker was looking between Olaf and Gustavus, unsure on details though. I also heard Olaf picked up a really fast recruit, any truth to that rumor? I think Gustavus may have gotten a distance/im guy, but am not sure if they closed the deal? They end up with another sprinter to help win an NCAA title? Any other teams do anything surprising?

    • #29163

      I heard Gustavus got a couple of Breaststrokers, one in particular that is really good, but not positive so I am not going to throw out the name. Have not heard anything about any other schools. Only sure way to tell sometimes will be early next season when kids are actaully on Campus.

    • #29164

      I have heard that there is a distance guy going to GAC and maybe another consols breaststroker too. But I have also heard that StOlaf got at least one, maybe two phenom newbies. But I cant remember in what events, so it is a sketchy rumor at best. As ACT said, we’ll just have to wait ’til October to be sure.

      There is a distance guy going to GAC, sub 4:40, plus he does a 1:56 or so IM and can swim other events, so he’s solid. I heard about the breastrokers as well, but not sure about anything else. The women apparently got a nice class in, but i don’t know any details.

    • #29166

      I actually coach one of the girls going to GAC. She is 1:57 200 free, 5:17 500. Will probably swim the mile. I know she talked to another girl at the MN USS state championships who is going there that is pretty good. Not sure what she swims.

    • #29167

      I did a little snooping around and found the times for the distance guy going to GAC, like SilentP said, he is a sub 4:40 in the 500, but is actually a 2:00 in the 200IM. He is a better 400IMer, where his time is comparable with with Pokorski and Pearson (the other GAC 400IMers) around a 4:13ish.

    • #29168

      Has he swam the 200 IM tapered? He might not have, its a possiblity.

    • #29169

      That 200IM time is a taper time from his high school state meet.

      It’s true, he was 2:01 (or around there) in season so that is why i thought he’d be faster tapered. My error. His 500 is 4:39… not too shabby. I would also assume he could be included on that 800 FR.

    • #29171

      What State is this Kid from. I looked at the Minnesota Results and did not see anything that matched the times mentioned.

    • #29172

      He is from Illinois

      That should make him only the 2nd member of the men’s team NOT from Minnesota.

      Well im guessing the 200 im and 500 guy is Skylar Davis but whos the other Illinois boy?

    • #29175

      Well, we have actually only been talking about one guy from Illinois (and you guessed correctly) though I did also hear that there is a second guy coming from the same team in Illinois. On this second kid, I have absolutely no information on him (nor even a name to look him up). But I think that it will be close to a record year for the Gusties for non-MN swimmers, haha.

      Who are these Olaf studs? Westby level? Just times are enough!

    • #29178

      i find it hard to believe they get another westby…there was no other “westby” ability freshman swimmer in the entire nation other than him last year, but i would be interested in finding who olaf got…

      He’s from Salem, Oregon and he went to West Salem High School.

      Check out this link for his profile on Olaf’s site.

      Interesting. Olaf’s 06/07 roster is posted on their web site. 12 new Freshman. Looks like a solid class.

    • #29186

      Wow, that sure is a lot of freshman! I wonder how they already know who all is going to be on the team? I seem to remember that we (at least on my team) would always end up having a few people who planned on swimming not swim, and some people who weren’t going to swim come out for the team. I wonder how this will change, if at all, when the season actually starts.
      Anyone out there have any times for these boys? How good is this class? Good enough to take down Gustavus?

    • #29187

      Would anyone that has the time and is able be willing to post the times of the new freshman at Olaf? The rest of us would appreciate it.

      Behrends is from Alaska, not Alabama. He is a 1:04 100 breast. The postal abbreviation for Alaska is Ak

      Mike Jessop is solid all around, 1:47, 4:45, 2:00 in the 200 back

      Ah, i saw Ala and thought Alabama, but i still didn’t find anything. Good work Cheadle. So 4 solid, well rounded guys. I am not sure thats enough to knock down GAC

    • #29191

      The GAC roster is finally posted.

    • #29192

      Wow, GAC has 5 guys not from MN on their roster. That has to be some sort of record for them. They usually have one guy, if any at all, from somewhere besides MN.
