2019 M. NCAAs: Gaziev, DeVine Among 100FR Scratches For Day 4 Prelims


There are only a handful of scratches from the final prelims session of the men’s NCAA championships, most of them out of the 100 free, to gear up for relay qualifications.

28th-seeded Ruslan Gaziev of Ohio State is the highest seed to scratch. Individually, he went backwards in the 50 free (two tenths) and 200 free (one tenth), but has been pretty good on relays so far. He was 19.5/1:34.9 individually, but has split 18.9, 19.0 and 1:34.4 so far, all freestyle. He’ll try to help Ohio State hold the 8th seed in the 400 free relay this morning, fresh without an individual swim.

Also likely in that boat of saving up for 400 free relay: Harvard’s Raphael MarcouxStanford’s 400 IM champ Abrahm DeVineArizona State’s Grant House and Texas A&M’s Mike Thibert and Mark Theall.

There are no scratches out of the 200 back, 400 free relay or 1650 freestyle.
