      My picks are the order I posted the poll in above.

      Here are the highlights from the MIAC women at nationals thus far.

      Alyssa Germeroth finished 7th in the 1meter. I can’t find the 3meter prelim results.
      Kate Alexander finished 12th in the breast and had a fast prelims time of 1:05.63. She is also currently 8th going into finals in the 200 with an impressive 2:22.37.
      Sarah Koepp finished 15th in the 100 breast.
      Some of GAC’s relays were in the bottom 16 but their times weren’t nearly as quick as they had been at conference.

      Alexander snuck into the top 8 in the 2 breast. Good for her, the first MIAC woman’s swimming individual all american in a couple years!!

      I put my money on Koepp in the 200 breast. It seems that I prematurely blew my load. Now I’ve got a real mess on my hands.

      Nice performance by Gunderson in the 1650, dropping 11 seconds from her seed time and finishing 13th.

      I haven’t been following things much lately….
      I am curious if anyone has the story on Gustavus senior Watkins not competing at nationals. I noticed she was replaced in the 200MR in which she qualified. And is it NCAA regulations that the replacement swimmer (in this case Piehl) can only swim in the relay that the absent swimmer qualified in? Gustavus really could have been helped with Piehl in the 200 Free Relay.

      For that matter, where was Julia Rood from Olaf? Didn’t she qualify in the 100 fly?

      I heard they got a medical leave for Watkins because her shoulder(s) were so bad and would not have been able to handle another three weeks of training. I am not a Gac swimmer though so I could be wrong on this.

      Julia did qualify but chose not to compete. Her priorities are more then just swimming, and I don’t think she wanted to have to continue practicing and then be gone for almost a week. Had she been part of a relay though, I am sure she would have happily gone and been a team player. This is the same Julia who didn’t even swim her freshman and sophomore year and then was abroad all of January her junior year, so it is not surprising to me that she chose not to swim in Houston.
