      Notable early season swims:

      Kevin Leckey -1:45
      David Chao (Freshman)-1:46
      Alex Beyer -4:46, 59.3 (100 Breast)
      Michael Flanagan (Freshman)-1:54 (2fly)
      Perry Bullock-1:55 (2fly)

      Some pretty good swims for those guys only being a couple weeks into official practice.

      Not to mention the 1:57 and 1:58 IMs… someone needs to inform them it’s early October!

      Great swims!

      It will be interesting to compare this to Emory’s Blue vs Gold Intrasqud coming up on Friday…

      I noticed that Beattie was 2:09 plus in the 200 breast. I keep waiting for this guy to have a huge year. He seems to go 2:09 high all year round and for some reason only ends up in the 2:08 mid range by the end of the year. Maybe this is the year.

      beattie definitely needs to work on his taper. he also went 16:20 something in his mile during a dual meet and couldn’t manage much faster at conference. dont know what it is.

      I know there are people out there that swim that fast all the time and never get a whole lot faster when they rest. That was never me, but maybe that is just him.

      I was only as good as the positive side of mediocre anyway, but I always had trouble tapering well, from age group clear through college. The only really good taper I ever had was my junior year of college. Other than that, it was almost always disappointment. My senior year at the PAC meet it was (at least partly) because I psyched myself out. Not really sure about other years before that, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that was part of it all the way through.

      won’t be an issue anyway. He is resting for midseason and going abroad in the spring.

      Check your history. WashU. is always fast at this meet. They’re probably not broken down from heavy training yet. It is a compliment to them though as it probably means that their team does a good job training over the summer.

      I would disagree. Last year was a MAJOR disappointment for Wash U at this meet.
