      Emory’s intrasquad results should worry teams like Kenyon, Hopkins and Denison.

      We’re talking about an intrasquad meet, we’re not talking about NCAAs, UAAs, a mid season invite or even a dual meet, but an intrasquad meet… I don’t care if they break multiple records, they won’t impress me until they do it under the spotlight in Houston. Ya got A-rod out there being an MVP candidate each year for what he does during the season, but it doesn’t put any treasure on his hand now does it. This is FICTION sweetheart.

      When you add Kenyon to that mix that leads for an easy fiction. If it were just the Blue Jays and Big Red I’d be signing a different tune. Kenyon doesn’t need to worry about anything at this point but themselves. The rest of the country should take note of this intrasquad though. While many of you may think that there wasn’t a truly amazing swim of the meet, it’s important for everyone to remember that it is an intrasquad meet. Many teams around the country choose not to swim intrasquads because it’s not real. Some people get up for time trials, most prefer to race competition outside of their own team. I, for one, would be very encouraged if I were an Eagles fan.

      the intrasquad times are also fairly impressive coming off a very difficult week of training (including the first 2/3 lifting sessions of the season) and a stressful week of midterms. go eagles!

      The women looked especially good. They should have great sprint relays again this year. And Psaris is the real deal… great times for an intrasquad, geez. Another great freshman sprinter and they should be sub 3:30 again in the 4 free relay.

      Now they just need to pick up a backstroker…

      I think we need a new adjective because “great” does not describe how good this girl is… i will use phenomenal, because a 1:54 in the 200 is simply that (not to mention the other swims she had that were eye popping).

      as far as guys are concerned, kenyon shouldnt be worried. there were some good swims by newton and petroff, but other than that, nothing amazing.

      girls on the other hand are the defending champs, so they dont have to prove anything.

      Don’t you mean breaststroker? They have a couple of decent backstrokers from last year.

      Yeah I was not floored by any of the guys times. Newton is great and we all know that, but I did not see anything else out there.

    • #30905

      yea me either…however you have to (1) realize how far along in the training process they are. (2) Realize that it is only an intersquad meet. I would put lots of money on them being right where they are supposed to be come December

      I would wait until CMU Invite or even Miami to make any big predictions. At least last year, Emory had a huge CMU meet and we got a much better picture of their team from it.

      Yeah I am sure they will be great, but right now not that impressive

      I’m just going to guess that Hostalet and Pasternak don’t count since they only got 2nd in the 100 and 200 back at nationals last year?

      It was a joke, people, a joke! Emory has Pasternak, Hostalet, Lawler, Nicholson, and now Miriam Brown is back. I think they’ll just do fine in that department.

      Psaris was 1:52.80 and 5:00.04 against Davidson today. She is absolutely the best swimmer in D3. Weima’s not even that good. I wonder what she will swim at nationals. I guess she’ll have to decide between the 100 fly and 200 free on Day 2, but otherwise the 500 Free and 200 Fly seem like good bets for her. Swim Nicholson on the fly leg of the 200 Medley Relay and Emory has a great addition in Psaris to those other four relays.
