      Who ya got? Kenyon swims Ohio the night before and has the edge in the medley relay, butterfly, IM and breastroke. Denison comes off a relay meet win and will be favored in freestyle events, diving, and backstroke.

      This should be a great meet.

      Men…Kenyon wins in a squeaker. Yes they’ve lost some studs but all in all had large enough margin last year that they should win it…unless of course Ive miscalculated the impact of Denison diving.

      Women….Unlike last year not even close. The Kenyon women win big.

      Kenyon Men got their asses handed to them by Denison. The meet was amazing, but it wasn’t even close. 1-2-3 in two back to back events, Denison even had to stop scoring after the 500’s and exhibition. Too bad the girls didn’t have any divers or they would have won, they did way better in the swimming than I thought they would.

      Denison swam great and Kenyon men got bushwacked. Yes, the Denison women would have won without diving but seems like poetic justice that diving works in Kenyon’s favor for once.

      Yeah Denison pounded on them pretty good. Matthew Harris had a good swim in the 100 fly 51.8, he should have a big year for them. It is way to early to say, but is Kenyon in trouble. They need to find a backstroker and fast.

      Kenyon’s not in trouble and they are feeding off of and laughing to themselves at anyone who doubts them. Too deep and too strong in March, when it matters. I can’t tell you how many people were trying to figure out where Eric Dunn came from last year in Minneapolis. It shoudln’t have been that big of a shock to anyone that really paid attention. They are fine and fueling at every comment about how they are in trouble.

      First, I agree – they’re not in trouble. Look at the results – the score was very lopsided, but it was their second meet in two days and they lost a lot of close races. It wasn’t as bad as the score indicates.

      Second, I have to agree with swim5599 in at least one way – where are the Kenyon sprinters? You’re correct when you say Eric Dunn didn’t truly come out of no where. If he would have been on any other team he would have stuck out like a sore thumb. But he’s at kenyon where everyone seems to be good at distance, and they produce a national champion in the 1650 every year. But sprinting – I’m just not seeing it. They’re thin there – the 200 FR does not look to be there relay this year. My prediction – win #29 in 2007, 800 FR back in the top 3, 200 FR out of the top 8. Go ahead, call me crazy. But for those of you wondering who I’m putting ahead of them: JHU, Emory, GAC, WL, GCC, Denison, Hope, Williams and/or Middlebury.

      At the end of the day Kenyon is still Kenyon, and I have a feeling Zarins will have a huge year for them.
