Justin Ress edged a competitive field in the men’s 50 free, clocking 19.38 to improve on his prelim season-best of 19.42. Zach Apple of Indiana was a tenth better than the heats to take 2nd in 19.47, and his Hoosier teammate Bruno Blaskovic (who was 19.39 this morning) was 3rd in 19.50.

NC State’s Nyls Korstanje was the fastest this morning in 19.29, a time that remains the fastest in the nation so far, but added three-tenths tonight to settle for 4th in 19.59.

There’s a difference between being “rested” and tapered

They always semi-rest for the invite meet to get qualifying times. I think it’s pretty obvious when looking at regular meets vs. the winter invite meet. They’ll continue to drop time at ACC’s and then even more at NCAA’s.

I can not believe you think that there are teams putting up fast times at these invites that don’t rest for them. Not happening. If I did not know he was not from the United States, I would never guess. No accent at all that I could hear.

Most top level teams know to keep the secret code (we never rest, never taper) however we all know better.

Is this why no one worries much about dual meets having no S/T officials, especially on the turn end?
