Among the NE high school stars are Olivia Calegan, Dannie Dilsaver, Liam Bresette, Alana Palmer and Caroline Theil. Calegan, an NC State commit, is the top seed in the 50 and 100 free as well as the 200 breast. She’s also seeded 2nd in the 100 breast. Wisconsin-bound Palmer of Lincoln Select is right there in the free, seeded 2nd in the 100, 3rd in the 50, as well as 4th in the 200. On the boys side is Bresette, an ASU commit, holds top seeds in the 50 free, 100 free, and 800 free.
Meanwhile, Cal commit Dilsaver is the #1 seed in the 400 IM and 200 free, and she’s seeded top 5 in the 100 free, 400 free, 200 fly, and 200 IM. Theil, a Texas A&M commit, is seeded 4th in the 200 breast and 100 fly, and she’s seeded top 10 in the 200 free, 100 back, and 100 breast. Theil’s best event is the 200 IM, where she’s seeded 3rd. Dilsaver, Theil, and Calegan all train with the Greater Nebraska Swim Team.
Mizzou is bringing a pretty sizable squad to the meet.
