A number of swimmers scratched the 400 IM in favor of swimming one of the stroke 100s later on — the scratches include Matea Samardzic, Erin Palsha, Amanda Richey, Carly Cummings, Cecelia Williams, and Anna Jahns.

Texas A&M’s #12 seed Beryl Gastaldello has scratched the 100 fly after taking 5th in the 50 free last night. Minnesota’s Tevyn Waddell, the #35-seed, has also scratched. Gastaldello and Waddell are joined by Erin Seymour, Kylie Stewart, and Ashton Ellzey.

Michigan’s Rose Bi and G Ryan, the #16- and #43-seeds, have scratched the 200 free. Both had “off” swims in the 500 final yesterday, with Bi adding over 1.5 seconds from prelims and Ryan adding 6. Other scratches include #20-seed Veronica Burchill, who will swim the 100 fly instead, Kaersten Meitz, Laine Reed, Autumn Heibig, Casey Fanz, Claire Fisch, and Emma Seiberlich.

Wisconsin’s Marissa Berg, the #42-seed, is the only scratch from the 100 breast.

Nine women have scratched the 100 back, the highest seeded of whom was Virginia’s Abigail Richter at #38. The other scratches include Caitlin Cooper, Zoe Avestruz, Chelsea Britt, Grace Haskett, Ky-lee Perry, Cameron McHugh, Haley Black, and Bailey Scott.

I think you have the wrong team attached to one of the scratches.

Stanford had to scratch Katie Glavinovich from the meet to make room on their team for diver and U.S. Olympian Kassidy Cook. They had one too many qualifiers and Katie was the lowest ranked.

How is this relevant to this story????? Your comment was covered in another article several days ago!

I’m pretty sure the original article mentioned Glavinovich scratched the entire day. @boknows34 is pointing out that she wasn’t at this meet in the first place to make room for the divers.

Thank you @avidswimfan

That was exactly the point I was making.
