      Well, the midseason rest meets (if teams rest) are right around the corner, predictions, stand-out swims, who is going to get cuts? What do y’all think?

      Emory will be in a position to win back the title after the midseason wake settles. They have impressed all year and will ride that tide through their midseason shave.

      Not much chance that the Emory women can beat Kenyon at the NCAA’s this year. It would take several relay dq’s to make that happen. Can Emory take second? That is the real question.

      I’m not sure you can write off the Emory women yet. Kenyon looks strong, but to say there need to be multiple dq’s is overlooking the fact that Emory returns Gunning, Axtell, Pasternak and Holmes (all NCAA scorers) 2nd semester. They all have been training while abroad from what I understand so it should really add to their depth.

      My comments are based upon how well Kenyon swam last March and their new FY swimmers led by Lauren Brady. Kenyon has strength in every event. I believe that Emory will be battling for second. Watch how fast the Kenyon women swim this weekend and how many swimmers they qualify for Nationals.

      I would have to agree that Kenyon is probably going to win again this year. It seems the majority of last year’s national team was either 1st or 2nd year swimmers.

      Now that we have established that Kenyon is good, what are some thoughts on midseason meets? How strong will 4th place Calvin College be without Wiema? Also White isn’t on their roster nor have I seen results, did she really go to Toledo?

      Thoughts on other teams, cuts that teams will make so on?

      We will see some good NESCAC swims this weekend. I expect the meets this weekend to be a coming out party for FY’s Ellen Ramsey of Williams and Kendra Stern of Amherst. FY Maggie Messinger, Amherst’s sole diver this fall, already looks like she could be headed to Nationals. Seniors Marika Ross of Middlebury and Brittany Sasser of Amherst should be close to A cuts in their individual events as their teams battle against each other in the Amherst pool Saturday afternoon. Middlebury’s distance swimmers led by Cowie and Soja will probably show their stuff. Look for some fast times from Williams’ Amanda Nicholson. I don’t think Amherst’s medley relays are that strong this year[weak in the breast and fly], but watch out for their freestyle relays. The best medley relays will probably come from Williams with Middlebury a little behind. My guess is that Williams and Middlebury overall are stronger this year and Amherst a little weaker. Amherst barely won both dual meets last year. Can they do it again this year? Last year Williams lost to both Middlebury and Amherst. It is not likely this will happen again.

      Here is some strong evidence of Kenyon’s strength from the Nike Invitational:
      Kenyon College ‘A’ 7:30.78!D3 A
      1) Brady, Lauren 2) Ertel, Tina
      3) Wenzlau, Rebecca 4) Arad, Danielle
      25.92 54.20 1:22.49 1:51.35 25.34 53.54 1:23.24 1:53.33
      26.16 54.56 1:23.70 1:52.95 26.05 54.70 1:23.68 1:53.15

      Kenyon’s 7:29.42 in the 800 free is a new National record. The old record (7:29.50) was set this past spring by Amherst.

      didn’t they go 7:30?

      The 7:29.42 was the winning time by Kansas.
