      I was taking a look at the meet results this weekend and was trying to compose a list of the most impressive freshman swims thus far. In fact I think (along w/ season best times) freshman best times should be added to this website since freshman are always such an intriguing topic on here. (The 1000 should be added to the regular list of best times since they swim it almost all year).

      This list can and should be added to now and throughout the year.

      1. John Thomas – Hopkins – 51.85 100 bk
      2. Kegan Borland – Kenyon – 9:35.07 1000 free
      3. John Thomas – Hopkins – 1:53.25 200 bk
      4. John Petroff – Emory – 52.91 100 fly

      Which of these is most impressive thus far?

      While not a bad swim, I can’t qualify a 52.9 fly time as that impressive.

      Alfonso Espinosa was 57.8 in the 100 breast, while not as impressive as the other 3 you listed, it is a time that would have gotten him into NCAAs any year previous, so it’s at least noteworthy.

      The 52.9 for the Emory Freshman flyer became a 52.00 on 11/17/06 against University of Georgia

      Ya the TYR did give us some impressive swims from Kenyon. Huguenard was 51.9 and 152 in the flys, which is a best time for him. Withington went 1:42 in the 200 free and 1:55 in the IM, he also led off the 400 FR with a 46.9 so he could be the missing link to Kenyon relays. Borland was 4:35 in the 5, 4:10 in the IM and 15:47 in the mile for his A cut. He’s already well under his best times in the 5 and IM and 1 second off his mile and they might not have been rested, which would be scary. Along with Dunn-15:29, Northcutt-15:57, Rantz-16:05, the Kenyon milers will be scary at NCAAs. Maybe 4 top 8 finishes and a very possible 1-2. On the girls side Ertel is living up to expectations, 57-100 fly and 2:04- 200 IM. Arad had a nasty 500 with a 4:59. Kenyon looks just fine now and I’m now convinced that this is the best freshman class, girls and guys.
