      Wondering who the top freshmen are in other conferences.

      In the MIAC, there are a few that might do alright should they make nationals.

      Nathan Young – Macalester was a 51.8 in the 100 back in HS.

      Whitaker Davis (Wi-D) – Gustavus – Brother of Skylar Davis (Sky-Dave), who was 6th in the mile last year. He’s been a 9:51 in the 1000, 4:43 500 this year.

      Chris Bateman – Olaf – was a 4:38 500 in HS.

      I’ll hang up and listen…

      The kid from Hopkins (Keeley) is probably the best freshman in the country.

      Chris Bateman of St. Olaf is like 6’6. He went like a 26 in the 50 yard free two years ago, and can now swim a 4:44 500 free untapered. If anyone has a drastic FY improvement in him, it’s Chris Bateman.

      From the results I’ve seen, Emory could have a number of freshman who would fill that bill.

      Boy Hoosier, you are right. I hadn’t been looking to DIII’s southern most competitor until you pointed out the hot start some of these freshmen are having. Any idea how rested the team was for the “Fall invitational”? They generally looked a little faster than their regular meets, but not much faster.

      They weren’t rested at all. From what I understand, Emory only rests for the Miami UniversityInvite and NCAA’S.

      A couple of sleepers

      Bowie Sievers at Hamilton, this guy is like 6’2″ tall and pretty lanky
      Freestyle 1:45, 4:42
      fly 52, 1:54

      Brian Scarlett at Union, word on the street is that he has more energy than a Tasmanian devil.
      freestyle 48, 147, 450
      backstroke 53, 157
      fly 54

      that rest worked pretty good for 2 of emory’s freshmen, white and bernstein. 57.0 and 205.0 in the breasts for white and 1549 mile and 151 low 2 fly for bernstein. those would be 4 solid scoring swims at the show for a couple of rookies

      White was a 25.5 on the 2 med as well.

      Howell down at Emory seems to be doing a good job getting his freshmen class to perform well. Looking at their results, most of them have already hit best times, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of them at the dance in March. Matt Spooner has been doing consistently well in the back events; he has a brother over at UGA who can throw down a mean 400 IM (20th in D1 right now), I could see him impressing some people once he fully tapers down.

      With Hopkins losing their best freshman to mono (rumors), White has a good shot at the 1 Breast assuming Keeley will be out of shape after a month out of the pool.

      If they can get their act together in the relays, this may be the year Kenyon falls off the thrown.

      I think you might have meant “this may be the year Kenyon gets thrown off the thrown”. Or maybe “the throne may have Kenyon thrown off of it, thus they will fall”.

      Just being helpful!

      Emory’s freshmen were really impressive. I was definitely not expecting that from them. Great job by Howell to get them going. Don’t know how much faster they will be in March since they are already much faster than HS, but they could surprise again.

      This however isn’t the year for Emory to win because you just can not win a big meet without relays. Depth is great and all, but racking up points in the 400 IM and 200 Bk can only take you so far because you only have one submission per team on relays and cant pile up depth points. KC has always dominated relays and is one of the major keys to their dominance. Right now I don’t see how EU can final in the free relays and place better than 4-6th in the Medleys. They need someone to step up and swim some sprint free to replace Callum who was a savior for them.

      As far as Keeley is concerned, hopefully he can get back in shape and swim well in Feb and March. He is a heck of a swimmer and JHU could use some more depth. Hseih also needs to have a better meet in Feb and hopefully some of the other guys can improve with more time in the pool and speed work.

      56 Breastroker, 1:54 IM in high school, (already had a B cut in the 200 breast so I’d say he had 3 events too). Apparently has mono.
