Why can’t they have spectators when next door (literally next door same parking lot) the ACC basketball tournament has spectators? The Aquatic Center should allow spectators!

Because next door is a 23,500 seat basketball arena. Greensboro will be using the spectator seating to seat athletes.

Being told that not even invited participants will be allowed at finals unless they are competing in finals…. that will mean essentially empty stands if this is true. Can this be confirmed? I thought there would be assigned team seating at a minimum…. maybe this is just bad information but would be especially sad if no other invited swimmers/ teammates could spectate. All the athletes should have tested negative before /during the competition …

Could you include a link to the article where someone scored the psych sheets? I think one of the big stories every year is how both individual swimmers and teams perform vs seed. The article I mentioned serves as a good initial baseline. It might have been the first article SS published after the official invite list was released. I remember a lot of good information in both the article and comments but I can’t find the article again. I find searching/navigating this site for past articles is clunky. Also, Go Bears. Very excited for the end of the week.
