Although John Shebat nabbed the win in the 100 fly, Bonetti made a hard charge on the last 25, similar to another 100 fly swimming fans have seen before…
Shebat took the 100 fly, going out with a 22.45 on the front half and this time got his hands to the wall first, narrowly holding off Bonetti to win it 48.29 to 48.31
The Aggies did something they haven’t done in 55 years when they faced the reigning NCAA champion Longhorns in dual meet action: They came out on top.
Think Caeleb Dressel is going to win three events again this year? So do we.
As in previous years, SwimSwam’s Power Rankings are somewhere between the CSCAA-style dual meet rankings and a pure prediction of NCAA finish order….
The Texas Longhorns have won the NCAA title each year since Joseph Schooling and the rest of the class of 2018 arrived on the “Forty Acres.” The race for the team title projects to be tighter this year, but the Longhorns have the talent and depth to make it four in a row.
The Texas Men’s team proved once again why they’re ranked #1.
Cal’s Matt Josa is the top seed for tonight’s 100 fly final.
Cassidy Bayer headlines the field in the women’s 100 fly on day 3 of the U.S. Open.
Nathan Adrian will look to add a second individual event to his Worlds schedule tonight in the men’s 50 free.
Chase Kalisz will contest his best event tonight, the 400 IM, and look to add his name to the U.S. World Championship roster.
With Ryan Murphy practically a lock to win the 100 and 200 backstrokes, the 50 might be Matt Grevers’s best chance for a win next week at World Champs Trials.
Teammates Ryan Murphy and Jacob Pebley are the frontrunners in the 200 back, but Texas’ John Shebat could come out of nowhere after his explosive NCAA season.
Park was a finalist at the 2016 U.S. Winter Nationals, placing 7th in the 200 back. He was also a 2016 Olympic Trials qualifier in the long course version of that event.
Murphy, who set the World Record in this event last summer, is the favorite going into the 2017 U.S. World Championships Trials, but veteran Matt Grevers won’t make it easy.
