Several members of the Duel in the Pool roster will also be competing, including Michael Andrew, Shaine Casas, Mallory Comerford, Justin Ress, and Trenton Julian, all of whom represented the US at the 2022 World Championships last month. 

Of those swimmers, Julian has the most crowded schedule for the week as he is slated to swim the 200 Fly, 100 Free, 200 Free, 200 Breast, 100 Fly, 400 Free, and 200 IM. He competed in  the 200 IM and on the 4×200 freestyle and 4×100 medley relays in Budapest, coming home with gold and silver medals from the relays. Andrew, who is known for having extremely crowded schedules at meets like this, is only entered in the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke, both events that he swam at Worlds. 

Comerford, the only woman competing from this roster who also swam at the World Championships, is only entered in the 100 freestyle. Though she did not swim the event individually at Worlds, Comerford was a member of the women’s 4×100 freestyle relay for the USA, winning a bronze medal.

American Record holder Beata Nelson will also take on a loaded schedule consisting of the 100 Free, 200 Free, 100 Fly, 100 Back, and 200 IM. She enters as the top seed in the 200 IM, searching for her first long course national title. 

Notable absences include Chase Kalisz, Bella Sims, and Annie Lazor, all of whom competed at the World Championships last month.
