Im a big fan of Perdue’s but I think Oliver should have gotten swimmer of the meet. She beat her straight up in 2/3 events and held her off in that 400 free relay with a terrific split.

others were as least as good. Cari blalock won 2 in times close to records, Heather Savage won in record time and was huge on 2 winning relays, Courtney Bartholmew won 2. She won because she was from virginia and an olympian not her performance

previous comment didn’t come out right. what i meant was that she got more consideration because virginia won and her reputation. She had a great meet without a doubt but others were at least as good.

Besides winning the 50Free and 100Free events Tiffany Oliver swam on 4 relays and had excellent splits on all of these relays!
