Stanford Futures Meet Spotted with College Swimmers (PSYCH SHEETS)

2016 FUTURES CHAMPIONSHIPS – ATLANTA

  • August 4th-7th, 2016
  • Stanford, California (Stanford University)
  • Psych sheets

The psych sheets have been released for the site in Stanford, California at the Avery Aquatics Center on the Stanford campus.

This is the second year where this meet series, designed to provide a stepping stone between the Sectional Championships and Junior Nationals, have existed. The dates overlap with the U.S. Open and Junior Nationals, which combined with excluding swimmers with U.S. Open times limits them from being overrun by swimmers with cuts for higher meets.

This year’s series expands from 3 meets in 2015 to 4, with sites in Atlanta, Austin, Stanford, and College Park.

The 2016 rules change that opens up the meet to swimmers with U.S. Open cuts to swim events in which they don’t actually meet that time standard has welcomed some known names to this meet that belie its stated purpose.

Among those are Duke swimmer Leah Goldman, who is an All-ACC performer and placed 24th at the 2016 NCAA Championships in the 100 fly.

She is an Olympic Trials qualifier, but only in two events (50 free/100 fly), which leaves her free to swim the 100 back, 200 back, 100 breaststroke, 200 fly, 100 free, and 200 free.

Goldman trained as a junior swimmer with the home team PASA. Among other college swimmers are Cal’s Jenna Campbell and Stanford’s Cole Cogswell, Brad Zdroik, and Andrew Liang.

Laing swim for Stanford. Forget which events but he’s promising as is Goldsmith. Both Duke women’s and men’s programs moving up. They get right support (funding/ scholarships) they could be on apar w/ Carokinas and Fliruda St. In ACCs one if these days.

And if so many $$& we’re”t wasted on football and — especially BASKETBALL — and pumped buyout awuatics instead…merciful heavens!

Liang finished 9th at Olympic trials in the 100 fly
