Last spring, the debate was Reece Whitley vs. Drew Kibler for the #1-ranked recruit in the nation. Turns out, neither of them were the highest-scoring freshman at NCAAs. Say hello to Minnesota’s Max McHugh.
It’s a tale of two classes for the men: the current junior class has been pretty lackluster, especially among our top-20 ranked recruits. But the current sophomores, led by #1 recruit Ryan Hoffer of Cal, have been outstanding through two years.
Ian Finnerty already broke the 50-second barrier in the 100 breast, and is the clear favorite, but Carsten Vissering will face four freshman in the battle for second place.
The IU Hoosiers still maintain their big lead heading into day 3 finals. Heading the Hoosiers is Ian Finnerty, who already broke his own B1G record in the 100 breast. Charlie Swanson also reps Michigan in the 400 IM.
Today we’ll get to see NCAA record holder Ian Finnerty swim his best event, the 100 breast, where he holds the meet record in 50.72.
Kylie Masse posted a strong 59.33 this morning in the 100 back, and she’s the favorite for the title tonight.
American Record holder Kevin Cordes is slated to swim the men’s 100 breast on day 3 at the U.S. Winter Nationals in Greensboro.
Townley Haas and the Texas Longhorns are the returning #1s… right? Our first-place votes are surprisingly split in our preseason NCAA men’s Power Rankings.
All things considered, this IU team is stacked, and is a top 3 favorite with the potential to really explode and possibly rank even higher.
