Madisyn Cox appears to be a late scratch in Mesa, leaving Team Coughlin without an IMer in the ongoing SwimSquad battles.
Cox didn’t swim the 400 IM this morning and does not appear on Coughlin’s official SwimSquad lineup. Coughlin has no other options at the IM spot and has been forced to leave it open. That should even the playing field a bit with Team Lezak, which also had to leave its backstroke spot open.
Update: We reached out to the Texas Longhorn program and were told Cox is finishing up school currently, and didn’t scratch for any health reasons.
There were only two changes from our projected SwimSquad lineup to the official ones: Cox’s absence and Team Lezak’s decision to start Cody Miller over Kevin Cordes in the breaststroke slot. Other than that, everything went exactly according to projections, right down to which events each captain picked for their starting swimmers.
We said earlier this week that Lezak needs to make the right call on his breaststroker to climb back into the mix, and it’s now up to Miller to carry Team Lezak back into contention this week. Team Sandeno, meanwhile, should be the biggest beneficiary of Cox’s absence. Sandeno’s squad is now primed to make up the 5 point margin by which it currently trails Coughlin.
