29 swimmers age 18 or younger are projected to earn NCAA individual invites on the women’s side, including one 17-year-old.
Harvard’s Felicia Pasadyn, 17, is locked into an NCAA invite, sitting 15th in the 200 back (1:52.56). She should also be in the mix to score in the 200 IM (1:55.88 for 17th) and should swim the 400 IM (4:08.47 for 24th). Pasadyn already ranks #30 all-time in the 17-18 age group in that backstroke, #26 all-time for 17-18s in the 200 IM and #38 all-time for 17-18s in the 400 IM.
One more 17-year-old could join her this year: Florida International’s Jasmine Nocentini is currently the second alternate, and quite likely to be added to the meet based on her 22.23 in the 50 free.
Here’s a look at the 18-and-unders currently projected to earn NCAA invites on the women’s side:
|Nocentini, Jasmine (Projected Alternate)||17||Florida Int’l-FG|
|Foelske, Jadé||18||Arizona St-AZ|
|Foley, Kay||18||NC State-NC|
|Fulmer, Amy||18||Ohio St-OH|
|Gillilan, Coleen||18||Notre Dame-IN|
|Looney, Lindsay||18||Arizona St-AZ|
|Panitz, Josie||18||Ohio St-OH|
|Stege, Kristen||18||East Carolina-NC|
|Transom, Laticia-Leigh||18||Southern Cali-CA|
Looking at last year’s psych sheets, it appears that 32 swimmers 18 or younger made the NCAA meet last year, including one 17-year-old: then-USC freshman Laticia Transom.
