NC State’s Justin Ress was a declared false start in this morning’s 200 free prelims, but SwimSwam has confirmed that his absence was due to an injury. A spokesperson for NC State tells SwimSwam that Ress has a back injury. His availability for the rest of the meet is uncertain, but he is doing better this afternoon.
Ress was NC State’s highest seeded man in the individual 200 free, entering the meet at #6. He’s put up some big relay splits for his team, including a 1:30.77 anchor on the champion 800 free relay. Ress anchored in 40.82 to help the Wolfpack to a 2nd place finish in the 400 medley relay last night. He also helped NC State to 2nd in the 200 free relay with a quick 18.31 on the 2nd leg.
Should he be able to swim the rest of the meet, his remaining swims could be the 100 free, 200 medley relay, and 400 free relay.
