Carson Foster opted to not swim finals of the 100 breast after finishing 2nd in prelims, instead focusing on the 200 back.
Foster was fast, but he wasn’t the most-talked-about topic in the first session of the 2019 Southern Premier Meet.
US National Teamer Alex Walsh will be among the big names competing at this year’s Southern Premier meet, which is arguably as deep as most Sectionals.
Gretchen Walsh moved to #6 in the 15-16 age group rankings with her time in the 100 back, and she dropped another sub-22 split on a relay.
Alex Walsh was one of 3 state record breakers for Harpeth Hall on day 1 of the Tennessee State Championship meet, but that wasn’t enough to hold a points lead over a deep Baylor School team.
The 2019 Tennessee High School State meet this weekend promises fast swimming from some of the nation’s top high schoolers, including a juggernaut of a girls squad from Harpeth Hall.
The favorite for tonight’s 50 breast will be Molly Hannis in the pool she knows better than the entire field as a UT grad and a member of TNAQ.
Kathleen Baker entered the meet as the top seed in both the 200 back and 200 IM, but will swim neither.
Katie Ledecky is entered in the 200 free and 400 IM this morning in Knoxville.
After not racing on Wednesday evening as the top seed in the women’s 800 free, Leah Smith is also absent from Thursday morning’s heat sheets at the Pro Swim Series stop in Knoxville.
