      So far it is much harder than last year to get into the final eight.

      200 free relay last year : 1:37.23 This year: 1:37.03

      500 free last year 5.03.18 This year: 5.01.87

      200 IM last year: 2:07.97 This year: 2:07.74

      50 free last year: 24.20 This year: 23.99 Only two swimmers last year broke a 24. So this year was really fast!

      400 Medley last year: 3.57.37 This year: 3:57.23

      Huh? Were you talking about Laura Menard from Denison? She is in third and Arad is second so far

      Is Ertel a little off? Very gutsy swim in the 200 IM if she wasn’t going all out.

      Emory switch Holmes for Lawler at night to get them around a 1:35.00, so I can see them possibly getting 2nd.

      I see no reason why Kenyon should have to put Ertel on the 200 FR at night.

      Savanna Johnson: woops.

      7 girls under 57. on the fly leg of the relay

      Prelims scored, without divers:
      Kenyon 179 (Lookin’ good, esp. their IM swims)
      Amherst 111.5 (Pettersen on fire)
      Emory 109 (Lawler, Hostalet fast; Smith, Holmes, Flader look to have missed a little bit)
      Denison 83 (Great swim from Menard)
      Calvin 77 (Has diver)
      Williams 76.5
      Middlebury 62 (Two key 9th place finishes in prelims; has diver)
      Wash U 43 (Nordbrock, Kono check; Hawk somewhat off; has diver)
      Wheaton 41
      Mary Wash 34
      Hopkins 31
      UWSP 28
      Hope 26
      C-M-S 25

      Nice job scoring it out. Hopefully, we will see some faster swims tonight. Ertel was off on her fly leg of the IM. She may pick it up tonight. I suspect there will be at least two changes on the Medley Relay for Kenyon in the back and freestyle. I doubt Ertel will swim a 54 tonight, but we will see. Kenyon’s 200 free should remain the same. Looks like Amherst was loaded for their prelims. Denison wasn’t , so they should go faster. Was Emory loaded this am?

      Additional comments:

      Team Championship:

      Kenyon has placed more scorers than expected based on psyche sheets coming in….should score more than expected and will have close to 50 point lead over Emory.

      Emory…has done a little bit better with some of the swimmers moving up from psyche sheet (50 free) and making it back at all (200IM)…they should be in second place.

      Denison….freshman surprise in the 500 free but overall about as expected and finish the day pretty far back of Emory (40 points) and Kenyon will almost be out of reach for Big Red.

      Individual Swims

      500 Free…looks like a great race as expected with freshman leading the way.

      200 IM…can Ertel swim better tonight if not its Orstein vs Sasser.

      50 Free…that’s twice Carlton has outswum Weima today…can she do it again tonight?

      Relays:

      200 Free Relay…looks like Kenyon over Calvin to me. The Kenyon sprinters look like they hit their taper.

      400 MR Relay…looks like Amherst vs Kenyon to me…I think Kenyon will win but will change the relay makeup…however breaking 3:50 doesn’t look like its in the cards for anyone.

      Records:
      Looks like Orstein the 200 IM is the best shot.

      Swimkin, look to my last post for Emory’s finals 200 FR.

      neswim, differentials look to be Kenyon about +70 over Emory (with Amherst just ahead of them), and Denison 26 behind Emory. However, Amherst has more to lose than Emory with 2 top seeds.

      As noted above by Spoon, Pettersen is on fire. Sasser will break the 100 back record in the lead off leg of the 400 Medley and Amherst breaks 3:50. I know I sound like a broken record on this event but Amherst can can drop an additional 3 seconds with Kenyon beside them and all the adrenaline of the finals. Kenyon could also make a big drop, but, if they win, the winning time will be lower than 3:50.

      Spoon..yes of course your right the differential right now is 70+ points..also at this point they don’t need to switch Ertel to 200 FR, though some tinkering will be needed in the 400 MR.

      Re NESCAC….I’ll grant you that Sasser is a force and a 54 high is not out of the question tonight…that might be too much for Kenyon but we’ll see tonight.

      Spoon:

      Amherst has only one top seed tonight. Were you also counting Sasser’s 2nd seed in the 200 IM. I agree she could be vulnerable to an Ertel attack.

      Nordbrock’s Im was awesome this morning. COngrats to the Wheaton Women and their stellar 1:36.3 this morning in the 200 FR. Orstein will probably break that record rather easily tonight. I am wondering what is up with Ertel also.

    • #36386

      Yeah I was thinking Sasser was first in the IM… woops, completely forgot about Orstein’s swim, which was stellar.

      Also, since I’m really into this Hy-tek power points thing, the top three swims from this morning were:
      1. Sasser 100 Back 55.62 866 points
      2. Orstein 200 IM 2:03.23 836
      2. Carlton 50 Free 23.29 836

      Three great times, but it puts things in perspective.

      Not done yet. Diving prelims results just came up. Calvin got a diver into finals, and she’s sitting 3rd right now (Deur). Their other diver finished 14th (Herman). Wash U finished 11th, and Middlebury 13th. If everything stays, that’s 19 huge points for Calvin.
