      This talk about splits got me thinking about some interesting stats:

      2 Questions:
      One guy in league history has split under 26.0 in a 50 breast and under 21.0 in a 50 free. WHo was it (I don’t think Boss ever split a 20. If so make that 2 guys).

      One guy in league history has split under 23.0 in a 50 fly and under 26.01 in the 50 breast. Who was it? (Brad white and this guy would have a really fast cummulative 200 medley relay).

      Finally, has anyone beside Knoechel and Latham won 4 different individual events at league meet (obviously not the same year) (I don’t know the answer to this).

      Ahh Friday….

      I love trivia.

      Unless you are thinking of someone else, this one is easy, Kurtz.

      I am going to say Nick Duda on this, although it’s very likely wrong. I bet he could have if he didn’t :).

      Jim Everett, Albion, won the 1000, both butterflies, the 200 free and 500 free.

      I think Boss was 20.9 on Hope’s free relay his freshmen year.

      Josh Boss 20.97.

      I don’t think the answer is Dustin Meisner for your other question, but if he ever rested and swam fly on the medley, there is little to no doubt in my mind that he would be another guy.

      I want to change my answer to Jeff Walker, Kalamazoo! I didn’t find anything to say he did, but i don’t think Duda ever did the 200 MR because he had an ok 4IM to think about.

      I thought maybe i’d add to the trivia, but they will probably end up being easy:

      What relay is the only 1 to have 4 different schools win it?

      Much like Kenyon in the 1650 at NCAAs, one school has had a stranglehold on an event in the MIAA, what’s the longest current streak for a school having an individual winner in an event at MIAA? And what event and school?

      I thikn Hope has had a stranglehold on the backstrokes in recent years. My guess would be the 100 back because I’m pretty sure Pfau won the 2 back his senior year.

      Both IMs also crossed my mind but Yuri won the 4IM last year and I seem to recall PBG winning the 2 IM one year. Diving also from Gorton to Ullrey to Holt but that stopped a few years back. The mile also came to a crashing hault when Gardner stopped that trend two years ago. I’ll stick with the 1 back. Relays would be the 200 Free Relay. Pretty sure Hope has won that once since the late 1980’s.

      The 200 medley is the answer to your other question. And 4 different schools have won it in the past 8 years or so. K in ’99 (sorry stick), Hope, Calvin in ’05 and Olivet last year.

      Geez how the heck could I have forgotten about Kurtz! Anyhow, with Boss’ swim of 20.97 there have actually been 3 guys to perform this feat. Kurtz, Boss, and Ben Farrar.

      Oh and I’ll answer the other question too:

      Brian Miller swam fly on the medley in 1994 and split a 22.9 (Kemeny swam the breast leg). His best breast split is 26.00 Noone would know that accept me and maybe Brian.

      From Hope, Jens Milobinski? I think he may have been under 26.0 (br) and was definitely under 21.0 for a free split.

      I remember 26 very low from Jens, maybe a 25, but I don’t think so.

      I remembered Miller’s fly split and the ‘26.01’ was a dead giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚
      Miller also trained freestyle incredibly fast. I bet he could have put together a strong 500 free time, perhaps pushing 4:40? Raczniak is another guy who would have had fast distance times if he ever swam it rested.

      Who had the best starts? From my memory (in order):

      1) Steve Domin – Incredibly fast track start. Never saw him beaten at a start (including nationals).
      2) Garret Olsen – Incredible ups. Only person who could jump further was Jeff Gorton.
      3) Paul Blowers – Absolute perfect form.
      4) Dennis Kelly – Very fast reaction time.

      22.88 was my fly split. Quick short-changing me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Here’s an interesting one, Adrian and Alma are tied with 10 individual MIAA Champions each, yet Adrian has no swim team and hasn’t for quite some time now. (This is just on the men’s side.)
