2022 Minnesota Invite Psych Sheets Show Notable Absences For Texas & Cal

2022 MINNESOTA INVITE

The psych sheets for this week’s Minnesota Invite were released Tuesday, with several noteworthy names missing and some athletes opting to only race a select number of events.

The most notable absence is Texas senior Caspar Corbeau, which was expected as social media has indicated he’s in the Netherlands preparing to represent the Dutch team at the Short Course World Championships next month.

Corbeau was the NCAA runner-up last season in the 100 breast, placed sixth in the 200 breast, and was also a consolation finalist in the 200 IM.

At last year’s Minnesota Invite, Corbeau was Texas’ top scorer with 92 individual points, winning the men’s 100 and 200 breast while also taking second in the 200 IM.

Another big name missing on the men’s side is Cal’s Jason Louser, who made the ‘B’ final at the 2022 NCAAs in the 400 IM (ninth), 200 breast (13th) and 200 IM (14th).

Wisconsin senior Wes Jekel, a three-time NCAA qualifier, is also absent.

On the women’s side, Cal is missing fifth-year Alicia Wilson, who entered the transfer portal in October, and Izzy Ivey remains out of action. Ivey posted on Instagram Tuesday showing that she and Wilson have graduated and added “here’s to the next chapter.”

NOTES

  • Texas’ Carson Foster (500 free, 200/400 IM), Jake Foster (200/400 IM) and David Johnston (500 free, 400 IM), all members of the U.S. team heading to the Short Course World Championships in Melbourne, aren’t entered in any events on the final day of competition. Foster is notably scheduled for a 500 free/200 IM double on Thursday, though it remains to be seen if he’ll actually race both. The Short Course World Championships kick off on Dec. 13.
  • On the women’s side, Texas’ Dakota Luther is entered in four events, including the 200 fly on the last day, despite also being on the U.S. SC Worlds roster. The same goes for Cal’s Isabelle Stadden, entered in the 200 back on Saturday along with the 200 IM and 100 back.
  • A number of Cal men are entered in events with no entry time, putting them at the bottom of the psych sheets. This includes Reece Whitley and Liam Bell in the 100 breast, Bjorn Seeliger in the 100 back and Gabriel Jett in the 200 fly and 500 free.

Neither one are on teams that swim beat down in season. Even if SC worlds is a bigger focus they’ll still be fast.

It’s not 1975. If they aren’t swimming fast now they won’t be in 2 weeks either.

Foster in 500 will be fun to watch

If Foster swims the 500, you’d think he’d be 4:07 at worse, which is unbelievable. It’ll be interesting to see how much he drops from his practice swim to a big mid season meet racing Hobson.

Smith, McGahey, and Sates have been 4:07 or faster. Maybe I’m missing someone but he could be in the top 3-4 all time after tomorrow.
