Top Seeds Drabot, Eastin & Ress Among Finals Scratches In Indianapolis

2018 INDIANAPOLIS PRO SWIM SERIES

There have been several major scratches from the last session at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Indianapolis, including three #1 seeds.

Katie Drabot had a very impressive PB this morning in the women’s 200 fly, going 2:08.38 which made her the top qualifier for the final. She has scratched out, as has her Stanford teammate Ella Eastin, who was going in 3rd.

Both have also dropped the 200 IM, where Eastin was the top seed in 2:12.97. Also dropping from the A-final were 5th seed Allie Szekely and 7th seed Asia Seidt, while Drabot (9th) and Lisa Bratton (10th) are both out of the B-final.

Justin Ress of Wolfpack Elite is also out as a #1 seed after leading the men’s 100 back prelims in 54.46. Other scratches tonight include Reece WhitleyGunnar Bentz and Jay Litherland. Check out the full list of ‘A’ and ‘B’ final scratches below:

This was a pattern before the Rio Olympics for a few of the pros…all out swims in prelims and a scratch in the finals. Remember? Standford has the school excuse…they finish their finals in June.

Finals are right around the corner for the Stanford swimmers. We’re lucky they’re even here.
