      I understand this is basically a men’s website, but does anyone know of any good women recruits?

      I heard from a friend that Yeng Beller is going D3 to Mary Washington College in Virginia. She stopped swimming for a year or so, but she was really fast.

      Her best times are sub 2:00 in 200 fly and back, 4:20 400im, 55/56 fly/back 100.

      Ahead of three national records and right on 2 more, I would imagine she’s best recruit men or women this year.

      That is awesome.

      This is not a men’s swimming site. Most of the people who post are men, and write about what they know.

      Please feel free to post more about women. Hopefully it will catch on.

      WOW, i know girls will always come in faster than guys (due to when they hit their peak, usually), but these 2 girls named are extremely impressive and i look forward to seeing if they can drop!

      Wow! Some fast women coming into D3. Pretty Awesome. Just checked Jr. Nats, Psasis just went 1:03.5 and 2:16 in the butterflies. I’d say she’s pretty good.

      Wow and I thought last years womens meet was probably one of the fastest in history. The depth on the women’s side is really getting to be pretty awesome. Marin Hawk what a great name

      Katie White is heading to Calvin. 24.1 in the 50 Free I believe. May not be one of the top 10 recruits in the country but it sure does make for one scary 200 Free Relay next year with Weima and the crew.

      If she makes the relay… their 2FR doesn’t graduate anyone from it. You have to figure she can split at least 24.0 though, which would improve their relay to a sub 1:36, putting them in 2nd position, assuming no one else drops. Unfortunately for them, none of the relays in front of them lost anyone either…. and Kenyon used 3 froshies and a sophomore

      The women’s meet is going to be crazy fast this year. ANyone have predictions on how fast weima will swim?

      I predict Wiema will be dethroned in the 200 Freestyle.

      I’d wager against that.

      I think of all her races that is the one in which she is the most dominant, no way she loses that race. ANy chance she can go 1:48 low or so

      Given that Sam White and Lindsay Payne have graduated, come next March there will be at least 5 new individual champions in the 500 and 1650 Free, the 100 and 200 Breast and the 200 IM.

      Orstein is the favorite to regain the 200 IM title she lost to Payne as well as defend her 400 IM. She’s on record as saying her goal is three individual championships this year. Watch out for sophomore Nicholson in the 400 IM. Orstein should battle it out with Kelly Norsworthy in the 100 Breast.

      I don’t see anyone on the horizon who can challenge Weima in her three freestyle events{50,100 and 200].

      It does appear that FY Zeng Yeller[See opening post of this thread] can battle Sasser and Gephart in both of the back and fly events. Both Sasser and Gephart set national records last year. Can they drop any more time?

      Who will take up the slack in the 500 and 1650? Will it be Sara Cowie of in the 1650 and Jenna Walters in the 500? Don’t forget Rebecca Allison in the 500.

      The relays will be interesting. The 200 Free[Kenyon], 800 Free [Amherst] and 200 medley[Kenyon] winning relays return intact. The two winning Williams relays[400 medley and 400 Free] each lost three swimmers to graduation. Can Calvin challenge in the 200 and 400 Free relays with the pick up of Katie White?

      Wash U has picked up a fast freestyle sprinter in Marin Hawk according to this thread. What does that mean for the Wash U relays?

      Overall, I suspect this is the year that Kenyon gets back into the #1 position. Emory will be a close second. Williams, Amherst, Wash U and Calvin all have a chance for third. I think it might be Wash U or Calvin.

      By mid-December, we will have a better sense of how the rookie swimmers are doing. We should come back to this thread at that time to see how things have evolved.

      Don’t see who will beat Weima in the 200 free.
      Lots of change at the top as pointed out by NESCAC fan.
      Relay-wise good chance of Kenyon sweep by the Ladies.
      Expect a very competitive 100 fly with a new national record as several teams are bringing in very fast freshman in this stroke. Good chance of first sub 55 100 fly.

      emory also got ruth westby from atlanta who had some shoulder issues last year but still goes 1:51 2 free and a good 1 free too but i’m not sure what it is…

      So Parish’s record goes down in the 100 fly, man I remember that swim. I have been around the sport of swimming a long time, and I can not ever remember a female swimmer with the amount of strength that Parrish had. That was a very physically strong swimmer. I have to think having her as an asst at Denison is only going to help.

      Weima will be the swimmer of the year this year

    • #29773

      Parrish’s record should go down, but let’s face it, it’s not an especially great record. In power points, it ranks only above Petrock’s 400 IM swim (which should also be broken this year by Orstein, Nicholson, or Smith from Emory). It’s not that it isn’t a good swim, but when the 100 fly is being won at DI’s with a 51. (and the record stands at 50.01 by Coughlin), then a record that is four seconds slower in DIII should be faster.

      Also, I wouldn’t give the Swimmer of the Meet title to Weima yet. I’m very interested to see what Norsworthy from Colby can do. A 1:02-2:16 combo from her could match up nicely against a 50-1:48 from Weima. Also, a 54-1:58 from Sasser and Kephart could look good as well. However, I do think Weima will win it because she has a strong third event (the 50, which she’ll probably win), and because Calvin relays should do very well this year with her on them.

      It will be interesting to see what Kelly Norsworthy can do considering that she is spending the fall semester abroad in Italy. Although, she has never ceased to amaze me thus far.

      No there are records faster than Parrish’s, but she could win a bench press competition against any other d3 women’s swimmer ever.

      Weima wins swimmer of the year because she will go 23.1, 50.2, and maybe 1:48 mid.

      Followed yet by NESwim’s comments of:

      The only way I see Weima winning the 200 Free is if Kenyon’s new stud chooses to swim the 100 fly and set that National Record instead. But if she swims the 200 instead of the 100 fly, would anyone care to retract their previous statement? That would be an unbelievable race, just wish I could see it.

      2:03 LCm is def fast, however it does not convert to faster than Weima’s 1:49 low. This will be a great race, but I think Weima wins it in about 1:48.4 or so

    • #29778
      DonCheadle
      Member

      We all agree that trying to convert is silly, but I think we agree that a range can be established. In my mind, the range for a 2:03 in LCM is 1:47.0 to 1:50.0

      Who knows where this swimmer will fall, but I don’t think that it is unreasonable to consider her the favorite.

    • #29779

      I don’t think she’ll swim it, but rather lead off their 800 FR. They have several ladies who will be in top 16 for Kenyon and therefore her services would be better had in the 100 fly, where she can also set a record.

      I am definately interested to see what she does go in the 200 free. If she does swim the 100 fly, we are probably looking at 54 mid. Wouldn’t that be fun to watch.
