On day 2 of the University of Georgia’s Last Chance Meet, there was one swimmer who sealed their spot at the 2021 NCAA Championships.
Competing in his home pool, UGA junior Keegan Walsh threw down a huge personal best of 1:41.16 in the 200 backstroke, knocking over a second off of his best time of 1:42.34. With his performance, Walsh earned an NCAA B-cut in the event, and now ranks 13th in the NCAA.
Even with the men’s PAC-12 Championships, along with a series of mid-major conference championships still yet to occur, Walsh will certainly earn an NCAA invite with his time. For reference, last season, it took a 1:41.18 to make the NCAA Championships. However, the invite time this season is expected to be slower due to complications associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
Other Notable Swims:
- UGA freshman Sloane Reinstein posted an NCAA B-cut in the 200 freestyle, swimming a time of 1:46.29. Although her time ranks outside of the top-40 in the NCAA, making it unlikely that she will earn an individual invite, her time is still significantly faster than her personal best from high school. Prior to her arrival at Georgia, Reinstein’s best time was a 1:49.17.
- Another UGA freshman, Caleb Harrington threw down a best time of 1:46.87 in the 200 butterfly. With his performance, he narrowly missed the NCAA B-cut of 1:46.69.
