      Kzoo’s best relay is the 400 Medley. It SHOULD make nats:

      51.0 Ellis
      56.5 Fonz
      52.0 Dekker
      46.5 The Hen

      That is a 3:26.0 That is very reasonable/attainable. Any of those guys could be a full second faster. Good thing that Dekker will not have to concentrate on backstroke anymore.

      I don’t know what to predict on the 200 medly, because Ellis’ best is with a feet start, Fonz hasn’t swam it, and I have no idea who will be swimming the back two legs.

      I’ll take a stab at 2 more K relays:

      200 MR:
      Ellis – 23.5 (this is his high school split)
      Fonzi – 24.5 (equals fastest split last year, should be done by a top 60 world ranked guy in the 50 breast)
      Griener – 23.0 (better at the 50, approx to last year’s times) or jim or groth
      Hennigar – 21.0

      1:32.0 (would place around 3rd last year with all freshmen possibly)

      400 FR:
      Fonzi – 46.5
      Ellis – 46.0
      Hennigar – 46.5 (.7 off best flat start)
      Ben – 47.5 (approx)

      3:06.5… again by all freshmen

      They wouldn’t be best relays but the MIAA can put together a couple pretty nice Freshman Relays:

      Ellis 50.7
      Espinosa 56.2?
      Greiner 54.2
      Hennigar 47.3
      3:28.4

      Heyboer 52.1
      King 59.6
      Nelis 52.1
      Rose 47.8
      3:31.6

      If you give each of the last three legs .5 for a relay pick up you’re looking at 3:26.9 and 3:30.1. Wow.

      The real question is…will the 400 med. beat Hope’s 400 med.? I think it has been a while since that has happened, hasn’t it?

      Been a while since we’ve had a MUCH faster backstroker too 🙂

      Didn’t you have Latham one year?

      1997 is the last time we had a truly faster backstroker, 1998 was the last time we won… so yes, it’s been a while

      I could only find the 98-99 results on http://www.k-swimming.org…that was Latham’s senior year, I believe, in which he swam the backstroke leg and they lost by a few or more seconds. I’m curious to know whether the 400 med. was won by K in any of his other 3 years and whether he swam the backstroke leg.

      I meant to say 98-99 instead of 98-97.

      They won in 96, 97 and 98, but he only led it off in 97

      P:

      Latham led off both medley relays all 4 years, 96-99, at MIAA’s and at Nats.

      I was merely going off of k-swimming.org, which says he didn’t do the relays, but it could easily be wrong.

      The difference in this year’s race will come down to the fly leg, because he’ll be 4 – 5 seconds behind when he jumps in. If he only outsplits the K flyer (who should be at least 52.0) by a second, the freestyler will be unable to catch up, no matter who hope anchors with.

      Kzoo has a shot at leading after two legs at Nats in both relays. That is pretty cool. I think Hope had the lead a couple of times at that point, too.

      I would say that K should be leading at the half way point of both medley’s next year. Duda and DeHart are gone. Ellis is better on his back than them anyway. AND Fonz is better than Zarins and Gosselar, ESPECIALLY at the 50.

      Yes true this new K breaststroker is better than both Kenyon guys in the 50, but he has not been 55.5 in the 100 yet, so to say he will dominate Zarins is probably a bit premature, that being said K probably has a chance to be leading at nats.
