2017 U.S. Open: Gabby DeLoof (Back) and Pavel Romanov Scratch on Day 4

2017 U.S. OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS

Pavel Romanov of Alabama, whose 1:02.45 in heats of the men’s 100 breaststroke beat his seed time by .54, dropped out of the B final. Ross Palazzo of Hudson Explorer finished 17th overall this morning with a best-by-0.23 1:03.05 and will move into the B final. Because of a swim-off for eighth place, Chandler Bray of Avon Community/Florida is in the A final and Cal’s Carson Sand will lead the B final.

In the women’s 100 back, 9th place finisher Gabby DeLoof, unattached from Michigan, scratched the B final to concentrate on the 200 free, where she is the top seed for tonight’s A final.

That puts Kentucky’s Ali Galyer and Alexa Kutch of Lehigh Valley/Drexel in the middle lanes of the B final. It will be their third 100 back of the night. As they both swam 1:02.37 in prelims, they swam off in the eventuality that two people scratch, in which case one of them would have moved into the A final. As it is, only one scratched, so they will face off again in tonight’s B final. It is worth noting that both Galyer (1:01.74) and Kutch (1:01.88) improved enormously in the swim-off.

There’s nothing to report in the men’s 100 back; all top-16 swimmers should be in place, including Trojan Swim Club’s Ryan Lochte in an outside lane of the A final, with New York Athletic Club’s Arkady Vyatchanin in the middle lane.
