Scoring Proposal #1 – Round 2 Men

Winners Bracket

(1) K-Zoo 181 – (4) Hope 113 = We’ll get to see this matchup for real very soon, but tapered, it was no contest. Hope’s only wins were the distance events…Rose and Shade flip flop 1-2 finishes in the mile and 500.  Hazekamp wins the 2 bk, Hunt wins the 1 fly and Heydlauff wins 3 meter diving.  Other than that it was all Kalamazoo.  Manning and Fleming are triple event winners as Kalamazoo cruises.

(2) UWSP 142.5 – (3) WashU 118.5 = What a great meet to watch (if it were real!).  The Pointers jump ahead to a 13-4 lead after the 200 medley relay only to see the Bears win the next three events, including a 1-2-3 finish in both the 200 and the 100 backstroke and you think we may see a WashU upset.  Then the Pointers breaststroke crew steps up onto the block and finds a 1-2-3 finish of their own and all of the sudden it’s just a 9 point meet.  It remained close and was tied at 103 with just four events to go.  But UWSP found a way to win out and finish the meet the way that it started, by going 1-3 in the relay.

Losers Bracket

(8) Olivet 166 – (5) St. Olaf 114 = The Oles couldn’t find a way to spread the three headed monster of Scarth, Bateman and Kubat around enough to prevent Olivet from pulling the upset.  In fact, Olivet won every event one of those three did not enter and outscored St. Olaf 28-6 in the relay events by going 1-3 in the 200 medley relay and 1-2 in the 200 Free Relay.  Olivet never trailed in this meet as Rafe Maxwell and Cody Sanders were double winners for the Comets. Three different Olivetians won the short freestyle events, Harden, Fiorillo and Jackson in the 50-200 respectively.

(6) U Chicago 165 – (7) Carthage 122 = Breaststroke and Diving proved to be too much for Carthage as Chicago outscored the RedMen 56-8.  It was just a four point Maroon advantage as the swimmers took a break heading into the first diving event and before the RedMen knew it they were down 17. Carthage came out on a mission after the first diving break and won 3 of the next 4 swimming events, including a sweep in the 500, but it wasn’t enough.  Chicago took charge in the 100 fly and used that momentum to win the last four events of the meet.
