We’ll see a Worlds team member in the men’s 200 fly as Justin Wright will be in the mix, but teenage star Luca Urlando looks like the man to beat in this one.
Today’s morning session begins with heats of the 200 fly and 100 free, and timed finals of the women’s 800 free and men’s 1500 free.
Worlds is over. Take a breath. Did you take a breath? OK, good. Now it’s time for the 2019 U.S. Nationals, where all eyes will be on Ryan Lochte’s return.
Licon only swam one other event at the meet – the 200 breast, where he stunned with an impressive 2:08.
Another big swim came in the men’s 100 free, where Drew Kibler won the race just ahead of Texas teammate Daniel Krueger.
Most interestingly for Texas, swimmers John Shebat, Tate Jackson, and Jeff Newkirk are entered in the meet.
Day 1 of the 2019 Texas Senior Circuit meet in College Station featured the 50 fly, 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, and 400 free.
The highlight might be the 200 breast, where 200 IM/200 free champ Andrew Seliskar goes up against 100 breast champ (and defending 200 breast champ) Ian Finnerty of Indiana.
Night 4 at defied expectations. There was only one place in the top 4 in any of the 5 individual events that was picked correctly by more than 50% of entries
SwimSwam’s Jack Spitser was on deck to capture all of the prelims excitement on the final day of competition.
Cal’s Andrew Seliskar has always been a versatile force to be reckoned with, but until 2 days ago, he had never won an individual NCAA title.
Dean Farris posted a time of 41.00 in the 100 free prelims to become the fifth fastest performer in history.
NC State, Texas and Cal have almost endless options for 400 medley relay lineups tonight. We try to puzzle out the options between sessions.
Daniel Krueger won the 100 free on Saturday, touching just .02 seconds off his time trial time from day 1
Defending NCAA Champion Austin Katz will swim the 200 back on Saturday evening at Big 12s.
