Sidelined after being hit by a stray bullet this summer, Minnesota breaststroker Max McHugh is back. We’ll see him tonight on the 200 medley relay.
It’s a rematch of 2019 NCAAs, with #1 Cal taking on #2 Texas. Watch for some brutal battles through the 50, 100, and 200 freestyles.
Kelly Pash and Maxime Rooney each doubled for Texas, as both the Longhorn men and women defeated Indiana and Louisville in LCM action in Bloomington.
The Longhorns bookended the meet with nation-leading relay performances, ultimately winning all except two events behind strong underclassmen showings.
In the 200 fly, Pash roared to a 1:55.67 to win the event by 3 seconds and drop over a second from last weekend’s personal best.
Pash got the ball rolling early, speeding to a 1:46.42 in the 200 free.
Texas sophomore Daniel Krueger, the top 100 free returner from last year’s NCAAs, became the first man in the still-young season to go (unofficially) sub-42.
The top two teams are clear. Everything after that… completely unpredictable. Our five voters take an opening shot at preseason Power Rankings.
The depth is outstanding, especially with elite freshmen and transfers incoming. The task will be swimming best times at NCAAs – an issue in 2019.
The Texas Longhorns have released their much-anticipated schedule, confirming that the annual Texas Invite will not feature swimming.
The NCAA swim season is upon us, and it’s time for a time-honored tradition: SwimSwam’s staff predicting NCAA event champions half a year out.
Minnesota’s winter invite will feature last year’s top 2 men’s NCAA teams (Cal and Texas) along with 3 of the top 5 women’s programs (Cal, Michigan, Texas).
Bruno Fratus of Brazil earned 1 of the nation’s 3 gold medals on night 4 of the 2019 Pan American Games, topping the men’s 50m free field.
Bruno Fratus is aiming to win gold in the men’s 50 freestyle tonight in Lima after consecutive silver medal finishes at the Pan Ams.
West Virginia commit Hunter Armstrong, who already won the 100 free this week, shaved .02 seconds off Michael Andrew’s four-year-old meet record.
