      This was brought up in the anonymous forum, but Eric Dunn isn’t listed on the Kenyon roster, nor did he swim in the NCAC relay meet. Anyone know why? Is he training for Trials too?

      Also of Mile news is Wess Bubb. He is on the Denison roster, but hasn’t been at any of the meets yet. Not to steal the topic, but does anybody know what is going on with him?

      OT? Hardly. What is the cut in the mile? My sources tell me Dunn is burned out though he *may* return later this season. I’d expect Steen has him talked into swimming again and he probably goes faster than is reasonable for a half-season of training.

      Will Kenyon’s streak of having the winner of the 1650 end? It started in the late-80’s if I recall.

      I cannot imagine Dunn going for trial cuts. I’m really surprised that he’s burned out, as you say. He did have a decent amount of competition, at least in the 4im last year. Too bad if he doesn’t swim…he is pretty fun to watch, even if his celebrations are arrogant and obnoxious.

      If Dunn is out, could that be enough to knock Kenyon off the top of the list? I know that losing one man isn’t a huge swing at the NCAA level, but if the right team can move up enough in his absence and gain some momentum…. Maybe, just maybe someone else could have a shot at winning?

      Who would stand to benefit most from Dunn’s abscence– Emory? Denison?

      See, last year they weren’t supposed to have any sprinters…then Mitchell went 20.2 / 49.5 / 44.9 in March. Maybe the mile streak will end, but they’ll figure out how to adapt if Dunn doesn’t swim, and they’ll still win.

      I have no idea about that. I was just thinking, perhaps wishfully, that this could possibly provide an “in” for another team to at least make a run at first. I know that the odds of another team winning are not good, but maybe making the gap smaller? Or at least making it a closer meet?

      Its been confirmed that Eric Dunn quit. Does anyone know why? It seemed like he was doing a great job on the team…

      If you read the previous posts it appears that he’s burned out.

      PS I hear Bubb will be back in competition this coming weekend. He missed due to a sudden illness that apparently has been resolved and a job interview. Of course, I have no idea how his summer training has been.

      Well with the likes of that distance crew at Kenyon my money is still on one of those guys to win the mile this year. But who knows, maybe this is Bubb’s year
