      Are they putting up event-by-event results for this meet?

    • #32566

      Wow, the 800 freestyle relay is already filling up – amazingly fast early season times! 7:46 W&L, 7:39 Denison, 7:48 Hopkins, 7:51 Emory, 7:52 Kenyon all this weekend.

    • #32567

      Wow Denison. It also appears that Peterson had just swam the 1650. That relay is so stacked.

      Denison should get that record this year. Geisinger went a 1:40.5 in prelims today. 1:38 flat leadoff by Curtis, 1:40 flat by Geisinger (relay) and two guys around 1:39.0

      Denison, wow, but as for the Kenyon Invite, the 800 FR by the Kenyon women might be even more impressive, because based on their men’s times, they aren’t fully tapered… anyone know what ertel led off in? Looks for them to break that record come March.

      Kenyon looks good, real good. How many events will Blair Withington be swimming? If i counted correctly, he swam 3 today.

      Great siwm by Thomas for Hopkins, really impressive. Has to be the favorite for the 100 back right now, even over the Denison guys in my mind.

      Fast 50, Ginder won’t even be in the top heat.

      Well, it is a Super-Final, so that shouldn’t be a shocker.

      I know the times are just morning swims, but this meet was looking slow to me at first glance. However, this meet isn’t about swimming fast, it is about making nationals, and by my count, before night finals on day 2, Kenyon has 8 guys in and 9 guys with in reach. Hopkins has 5 guys in, with 6 with in reach. In related DIII ohio taper meet news, Denison has 6 in and 6 reachers, and Emory has been busy punching Texas tickets, with 11 guys qualified already (but only 2 reachers by my count).

      Friday night’s results. Fast times! Kenyon women are STRONG. They add up a 7:32 with their 4 fastest in the 200 free.

      Lots and lots of fast times, too many to mention here.

      How many guys does Kenyon have that can go under 1:55 in the 200 fly, it looks like about 100. They have some ridiculous depth in that race.

      They have ridiculous depth in pretty much all the distance events right now it appears. What they need are 50-200 freestylers, and 100 stroke guys, everyone knows championships are built around relays and relay type swimmers…

      Yes, it helps. But check out Emory’s women from the last two years. They won Nationals with their distance gals for the most part.

      True, but for the most part excluding the emory teams and the University of Michigan men’s team from 1995 you have to have great sprinters and great short stroke guys.

    • #32579

      Its a heck of a lot easier. How many 500 freestylers can swim a good 50 breast split?

      Actually that Fedderly swim is a 57.1 at night. Very strong. Also Geurard was 1:40 in the 200.

      Test will give Courage a run for his money in that 100 free this year.

      yeah I had trouble with the kenyon results… I think I’m losing my vision. I thought dick went a 1:44, which is why i didn’t post it.

      p.s. mr. jhu2006 I need to know if you can still throw down because the 2006 class relay needs to rep at the next alumni meet. I know sugar bear will bring the guns, but snoodles put on some extra padding…

      First, I agree – it should be quite a battle.

      Second – I was curious how each did at this time of year last year:
      Test at Miami Invite – 45.53 (which was his seed for NCAAs)
      Courage at Longnecker Invite – 45.57 (his seed was 44.74 from his conference meet)
      End result – Courage 44.51 – Test 45.13

      Third – since they’re both juniors I was curious what each did their freshman year at this time:
      Test at Miami Invite – 46.30 (which was his seed for NCAAs)
      Courage at Longnecker Invite – 46.42 (his seed was 45.56 from his conference meet)
      End result – Test 45.74 – Courage 45.85

      My point – these times mean nothing. Courage will probably have the faster seed when they get to Houston, but it’s anyone’s race. Courage better be on in Houston or Test will take it.

      I know that Courage won the event last year so he has to be the favorite, but I am going to go out and say that Test will go 44.5, and seriously make a run. It is going to be one of the closest races by far.
