      They always swim fast early in the year (and at the end of the year, I don’t want to take anthing away from them), but wow, this is amazing:

      Some really nice swims – not the depth some others have but some good studs in each event and free relays made up of with some stroke guys. Nice leadoff by fedderly. Kind of like the old days – allen breaststoker, blank breastroker, florez – distance, leonhardt – distance – still got second in the 400 FR.

      I was really impressed by the Blue Jays this weekend. I’m sure Coach is just killing them right now, so to be able to get up and race so well is just awesome. We have always seemed to swim well at that meet. Some combination of pool, competition and the point in the year where you are in great shape but not completely dead like you are in November.

      I thought the frosh looked pretty good, with the 1:44 from Hsieh and the 1:57 200 fly from Pool was nice. Keeley was very solid, the 2:08.1 200 breast is real solid this time of year.

      Also, when looking at JHUs frosh class, remember Neil Mahoney. He is a sophomore, but because of health issues wasnt at NCAAs last year. He will be a huge addition for the Jays this year, especially on the free relays. 1:44 200 free already.

      I was at the meet, and there were some very exciting swims. Kleingutle’s 1000 was awesome because he snaked golaszewski from 3 seconds behind.

      The freestylers were definitely having a great meet. Watching Fedderly lead off the B-lay was funny because I had no idea he could move his body that quickly.

      52.89 is a great time for Sershon this early – considering that he is a steak. Same goes for the other strokers, esp. the breaststrokers – I can’t wait to see these guys swim after a rest.

      On the other hand, the terps had great starts, turns and underwaters – the hop spent most of their energy catching up after each wall. Again, I can’t wait to see the team swim later in the season, once everything is a little refined.

      shout out to Coach Weitz over at Wabash!

      definitely his weak stroke but it is early season and he is broken down back half will come – but George could make him even better

      Yeah that backstroke split is very strong though. 28 makes me think he could be 152ish in the 200 back.

      went 100.7 LC this summer still learning to swim 200’s needs more conditioning which he will get over next two years and definitely in college. actually decent short distance breast just has to work at it. still young (15 this past summer)and growing so we will see.

    • #39683

      i heard if a member of the jhu team misses practice, the whole team has to do an 8000im, while the one(s) who skipped get to time. is this true?

      this happened a couple of times last season… I think.

      It may be a 6000 and not an 8, but who knows…

      test and fedderley are seniors – last chance so they have some big motivation. 20.9 is big if they are poundingthe yardage with most likely little speed work

      I saw coach allie doing some filming for the meet. Maybe I can get some of the races up on youtube… but I’m not a savv.

      oh jhu84, since you’ve been in the real world for a while now I think you should donate 10 mil for a new hopkins pool. This way your son will be guaranteed his own lane.

      Yeah ok, when I can donate a mil to d3 swimming.com I’ll do that. besides it builds character for him to swim over and around “breaststokers” slacking on the long freestyle sets!

      hey! breaststrokers are a different breed. This “freestyle” concept is foreign to them. And by breaststrokers I mean “true” breaststrokers, that is guys that really can only swim breaststroke.

      I know who you are talking about jon blank, harvey allen in my day. breaststrokers are butterflyers who can’t get their arms out of the water for a full 100 w/o doing 1 arm fly 😆

      Breaststrokers are like a unique subset of the already undercoordinated swimmer. I was able to swim freestyle, but it was real ugly. My arms did not like coming out of the water and my ankles definitely didn’t want to bend that way.

      I guess I was unique. I was a breaststroker but could swim pretty much any distance of freestyle from 50- 500. Swam the mile against a guy that went 14:56 once, but we don’t need to talk about that one.

      Swim5599, I regret to inform you that you definitely weren’t a breaststroker then, you were just a good swimmer that specialized in breaststroke. All kidding aside, I do think breaststrokers tend to pigeonhole themselves to much some times and should find a way to contribute in other (usually freestyle and not backstroke) ways.

      Ok so you are talking about the guys that go 56 in the 100 breaststroke but can’t break 23.5 in the 50 freestyle. I knew some of those guys also.

    • #39696

      Yeah I mean, I just feel as if there are very few 51 100 butterflyers or 53 100 backstrokers who can’t bang out a 47 100 free. There are however a lot of 59 breaststrokers who aren’t on the same freestyle level.

      I agree completely. It is kind of bizarre actually

    • #39698

      I think it just lends weight to the argument that breaststroke is the most different of the strokes because of how unique the kicking motion is among the four strokes. Again, to generalize, I think as you go up in speed kick makes the difference between above average and elite swimmers. A good fly kicker is much more likely to be a good freestyle kicker. Strong breaststroke kick doesn’t translate to any other stroke.
