Impressive from youngsters (14 y/o) Cassidy Bayer, Madison Homovich, and Isabella Rongione. Of course, Rongione made the World Junior Team a year ago as well.

The list only shows one qualifier in the men’s 200 back, men’s 100 fly, women’s 400 free, women’s 100 back, women’s 200 back, women’s 200 breast, and women’s 400 IM. Also shows three women (Harnish, Homovich, Schmidt) qualified in the 800 free. I know the selection procedure is very different at Pan Pacs, but this screams weird to me.

Best of luck to all qualifiers!

Actually, looking at it again, it makes a little more sense. For instance, Connor Green was the top finisher in the 200 back, and I believe was the second-fastest in the 100 back. He’s only listed in the 200 back, even though Ethan Young, who was the third-fastest 100 back, also made the team. Haas got two events listed because the top two finishers in the 100/200 free were automatically selected. I’m assuming Bentz declined spots, which is why Seliskar is listed not only in the 200 fly (fastest time), but also in the 200 and 400 IM (where Bentz was faster). Still not sure why Egan got listed in the 400, but not Burns.

NotBobBowman

Sierra Schmidt is listed as swimming for Nation’s Capital, and coached by Bob Bowman. Is this a recent development?

MindoMom

That is a typo, Sierra Schmidt swims for NBAC, not NCAP.

TheTroubleWithX

Yeah, I can’t quite figure out how they listed the events that they did. For instance, I had Burns as the top qualifier for the 400 and the 1500, but he’s only listed in the 1500. Michael Andrew had the third-fastest 100 fly, but is only listed in the 100 back. You have a lot of guys who should’ve been eligible, who apparently turned down spots: Bentz, Dressel, and Vissering, among others.

Burns was fourth in the 400 and 1500, but due to scratches was accepted. Egan swam a 3:52.17 to Burns’ 3:53.28. Also, Grant Shoults swam a 3:52.78 and Townley Haas swam a 3:53.26. In the 1500, Egan swam a 15:25.22 to Burns’ 15:29.75. True Sweetser and PJ Ransford also beat Burns and Egan in the 1500, but Sweetser declined the trip and Ransford had already committed to the Youth Olympic Games.

Bentz and Dressel are starting college before the meet.
