There are no big scratches for Thursday morning’s prelims session at the Winter Junior Championships – East in Atlanta, Georgia. On the day before the meet, however, a final version of the psych sheets were released that included a scratch out of the women’s 500 free by 17-year old Noelle Kaufmann of the Badger Swim Club. She was due to be the 4th seed in that race.
While she dropped the 500 free, she still has entries in the 200 IM (14th seed) and 50 free (72nd seed, yards time).
The other big news is that Adam Chaney, while he didn’t scratch out of the 50 free before the scratch deadline, won’t race until Friday. His coach Ken Heis says that Chaney had hoped to catch an early enough flight to make the 50 free on Thursday, but won’t arrive until later in the day. He’s still entered to race the 100 free, 200 free, 100 fly, and 100 back at the meet. He’ll also hold the top seed in the 100 free later in the meet.
Thursday’s preliminary session will include swims from Carson Foster in the 500 free and 200 IM, including a 500 free matchup with Jake Magahey and Jake Mitchell – though Foster is seeded well below his best time, so the potential head-to-head battle there won’t happen until the evening.
Thursday morning will also see the first swim of the meet by 15-year old Claire Curzan in the 50 free. A multi-event 13-14 National Age Group Record holder, Curzan missed last week’s U.S. Open with some health issues, but is expected to be ready-to-race this week.
