      Any word on stud frosh, sleeper picks, etc. from this year’s incoming freshman class?

      No rosters are up yet. Any word on the Class of 2010?

      Were the Williams women able to reload after the loss of a strong senior class? Do the Middlebury or Amherst women have a chance to beat the Williams this year? In the dual meets or the league meet?
      Last year, NESCAC women won 5 individual events and three of the 5 relays at Nationals. I don’t see that happening this year.

      I don’t see anyone beating the Williams men in either the dual or league format. Will Tufts continue to show strong improvement?

      Will there be a men’s NESCAC national champion now that Cunningham has graduated?

      I think there’s definately a chance at a NESCAC national champion on the men’s side. Norman Scott. Steve Spinelli. Dave McManic. Ethan Treat. All seem to have a legitimate chance based on placings at NCAAs last year.

      With the way that spinelli improves every year, he may have a shot, the only problem is he swims absolutely loaded events, so out of the people mentioned. Ethan Treat def has the best shot to win an event. 400 IM, should be all his, Dunn will challenge him, but it probably Treats to win or lose

      The Williams women’s roster is up. The men’s is not up yet.
      Based upon some quick research, I discovered that the Williams women have picked up a couple of 1:08 breast strokers in Cuculo and Metcalf. Metcalf is also a 25, 52, 1:53, 5:08,and 10:24 freestyler. Cucolo is a 58 100 flyer, Sequeria 1s a 24, 53 ,1:55 and 5:11 freestyler. Hoffman is a 1:55, 5:11 mid-distance free-styler. There could be some other fast swimmers in the other FY swimmers, but their times did not turn up in my search.

      The Amherst women lost basically no one from last year’s class. Their new roster is not yet up. Assume that Amherst picked up a couple of decent swimmers. I believe that the Amherst women have a chance to win their dual meet against Williams this year. Williams had some the big holes to fill caused by graduation including those left by Payne, Kim, Edmondson, Chambers and Faughnan? Certainly Nicholson and Haley will lead the way for Wiliams this year, but I think the Amherst women might be stronger. What do you think?

      What’s your take on the Williams men freshman now that the roster is updated?

      Didn’t bother to look anyone up, after all won’t NESCAC fan be on it soon? I do remember Hannigan from Wilton Y as a pretty decent sprinter a few years back when I followed them more closely and remember Blackford as one of the Hotchkiss captains this year (but no Rathgeber).

      Are there any difference makers among the freshman?
