      the race of the meet: 500 free, Newton/Peterson re-match.

      I wouldn’t count Eric Dunn out of this race….or Kegan Borland for that matter. And all of this without mention of the top seed. Interesting.

      This will sound very weird but i think the top seed could surprise some people. Last year he went into the meet with a 4:36 and went a 4:34. Due to Hanson’s sickness he had no competition at conferences, so he will be a player.

      Dunn is also a good name to bring up facenorth. He went out too fast last year and died (2 splits over 28, ouch!) but i think he’ll swim it smarter this year and be a contender. He came to the meet with only a 4:34 before his prelim swim of 4:30. He comes with a 4:30 already this year and didn’t rest at all for his midseason meet.

      i didnt mention stewart because he was 434 last year and now hes at 429… thats a 5 second drop from one year, i dont expect him to go any faster.

      i see newton or peterson winning (426s last year– they will be faster this year). curtis was 27 and spinelli was 28 last year. all faster than the top seed.

      Yeah this is probably one of the most exciting races of the meet. I look for Newton, Peterson, and Curtis to all be under 4 :26. Spinelli and Dunn will be about 4:27 or so, and then a couple other people will be right around 4:30.
