New Bloomington Psychs: Margalis To Swim Atlanta Instead, Conger Scratches


  • Thursday, May 16 – Sunday, May 19, 2019
  • Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center, Bloomington, Indiana
  • Long course meters (LCM) format
  • Eastern Time zone
  • Prelims 9 AM / Finals 6 PM (Thursday timed finals 4 PM)
  • Meet site
  • Psych sheets

An updated set of psych sheets have dropped for this week’s Bloomington Pro Swim Series, with Olympian Melanie Margalis dropping off the ticket. Margalis was entered both in Bloomington and at the Atlanta Classic happening the same weekend, so her absence on the new psychs all but confirms she’ll be swimming Atlanta instead.

Atlanta always probably made more sense for Margalis, who trains out of Athens, Georgia with the University of Georgia’s pro group. She was entered in five events, including as the top seed in the 200 IM.

The other big change is the absence of Olympian Jack Congerwho drops off the psych sheets. He competed at the Des Moines and Richmond stops, but those have been his only long course meters meets since last summer.

Two bigger name have been added: national 50 breast runner-up Devon Nowicki and recently-graduated sprinter Robert Howard.

There aren’t too many other changes on the updated psych sheets. The women’s 100 free no longer has Claire Adams double-entered, once for Carmel Swim Club/Texas and once unattached. The unattached entry is now gone. Here are some of the other changes we noticed:

  • 16-year-old standout Dare Rose is no longer entered in the meet. He was set to swim 7 races.
  • Arizona State’s Silja Kansakoski is now out of the meet.
  • Scarlet Aquatics’ Jonathan Gomez is now absent.
