There are only a couple of noteworthy scratches on the final day of men’s NCAAs, both coming in the 100 free.
NC State, as they did on day 2, will scratch a potential point-scorer out of an individual race, likely to keep their relays as fresh as possible. David Williams, seeded 20th in the 100 free, is a scratch. He scratched the 200 free on day 2 along with freshman Ryan Held, and that seemed to work out well, with both men helping the Wolfpack take 2nd overall in the 800 free relay.
Williams would have needed a big swim to score in the individual 100, but will play a key role on NC State’s 400 free relay.
In a similar position is Michigan freshman Paul Powers, who drops out of the 100 free after coming in with the 26th seed.
