      The men are being voted on, and now, it’s the women’s turn. To be honest, this is much more difficult for the women because it seems the top times are much less updated. Nonetheless, the women deserve equal recognition for their equally amazing accomplishments over the past weekend.

      I have chosen 4 candidates, and again, voting will last for 1 weeks. Please pick the swimmer who impressed you most. They may not always be ranked in the top, but they had a standout swim or 2 that gave them the nod.

      *If you have a suggestion as to how the article should be, please let me know. We could do a standard article on how they did, an interview (if the winner was willing) or maybe something cooler I wouldn’t think of. Let me know.

      Horvat’s 400 IM time of 4:28 should also be added to that list.

      How could a person vote for Sasser, swimming a 2:04 200 backstroke time, which is more than 6 seconds slower than her NCAA record of 1:57.55. While 2:04 is a fast 200 backstroke for the average swimmer, being 7 seconds off your best time in a 200 (not to mention 3 in the 100) doesn’t really seem to qualify Sasser for the swimmer of the weekend.

      I voted for Brady. I also want to point out the Brady did a 2:05.24 in the 200 fly in prelims before swimming the 400 IM. That time puts her currently into first place in that event in the nation (beating her own first place fly time of 2:06)

      205 for Brady, thats awesome, but i remember Psaris being up there last year…where has she been? i dont think i saw her at Miami, but shes already been 206.7 (that was 1.5 months ago).

      Yeah, I was wondering why she didn’t swim Miami, too.
      If you have been following Kenyon swimming at all. Brady’s 2:05 was a pb time. Who knows how much faster she can go? BTW Brady’s 200 free time was from the lead off of the Kenyon 800 free relay at the Nike Invite.

      i heard Brady swap teams almost every year growing up. If she sticks with kenyon, she will be a national title winner. im not sure about this year though, that 205 might not get much lower just yet.

      as for psaris, ive been told that due to her Nursing major, the combination of classes and swimming are just overwhelming her for now– must be those dang rounds at the hospital. anyways, im sure she will get her act together for semester 2, hopefully

      Lauren did swim with many different club teams growing up. I think she’ll stick with Kenyon. Its a lot harder to switch colleges than club teams.

      NESCAC schools start their season on November 1, so unlike the other swimmers Sasser wasn’t rested for those swims.

      i’m not so sure. she hasn’t been looking too stellar in the zults, and she was a major studette for EU last year so that sucks for them.
