      What, if any, GAC records are on the chopping block to be broken this season? I wondered this while out and about Christmas shopping today and haven’t been able to do the research yet. If anyone has some idea, please fill me in. Just based on memory of records and this season’s times, I don’t think that the 400 FR is in much danger, nor are any of the sprint or breaststroke records for that matter.

      But what records could be broken this year? And by whom? Guesstimates on times?

      A complete list of the Gustavus first-year, school, and pool records is available at:

      I think the 800 Free Relay record will go down.

      I also think Stewart could take down Amundson’s the 100 record.

      I would not be surprised if the 800 FR went down either. With a half dozen or so great 200 swimmers to chose from, JC should be able to pick 4 that will average out to 1:41.8 or less. Stewart should be in the 1:37 – 1:38 range, so that leaves room for a 1:42 or 1:43. With Hanson, the Davis’, and Cuevas to choose from as well, it should be a fast relay this year.

      This one I think might be a bit more of a stretch than your other claim. I think he’ll be close, but don’t know if he’ll ecplipse it or not. It would be awesome to have someone finally break the 45 barrier for the Gusties.

      He was a 45.78 last year at nats, right?

      If I were to set an O/U on what he does the 100 free at conference, it would be 45.50. So a 45.13 would not be that out of the question… if not at Conference, then maybe at Nats (opening the 400 FR, since I doubt he’d swim the 100 at nats).

      I also think that the following may be possible:

      Stewart could lower his 2 and 5 records.

      One of the Davis’ could lower the 500, 1000, 1650.

      Skylar could maybe improve his 400 IM.

      Something like that, it sounds right anyhow. I don’t think that it’s entirely out of the question either, just that it’s not that likely. I’d give it 5:1 of happening.

      Neither of them will touch Stewart in this event.

    • #42582

      Yeah, my bad. I meant to say that one of the Davis’ could lower the 1000 or mile.

      Of course the 500 belongs to Stewart.

      Are we assuming that Stewart is swimming the 100 free instead of the 200 fly at conf? And if that is so is he going to swim the 200 fly at nats?

    • #42584

      Yeah, I think he’ll do the 100 free at conference (best chance to steal points from Olaf), and then switch back to the 200 fly at nats.

      If he doesn’t do the 100 free at conference, he’d probably lead out the 400 FR and get a time that way.

      I would agree with that 100%. We’ll have to wait and see to find out if the Gustavus coach feels the same way.
