The William and Mary men were impressive this morning, earning a large number of finals swims. On the women’s side, things were a bit more even, with a number of teams set to race for points in finals tonight.
Towson’s Hannah Snyder dropped an impressive thirteen seconds from her seed time to take the middle lane in tonight’s 500 freestyle Championship final. Behind her 4:50.84, James Madison’s Quinn MacMillan swam a 4:51.51 for second. William and Mary’s Morgan Smith earned the third seed in 4:53.47.
The same three teams took the top three spots in the same order for the 200 IM. Charlotte Holz was first to the wall in 2:01.44 for the Tigers. JMU’s Katie Parker was second (2:02.05). Allie Christy of William and Mary is tonight’s third seed with her time of 2:02.86.
The top three swimmers dipped under 23 seconds this morning in the 50 freestyle. Jaimie Miller lead the way in 22.63, earning the top seed for William and Mary. Delaware’s Morgan Whyte touched second (22.92). Camillla Czulada of JMU finished third (22.95).
William and Mary will hold half the lanes in tonight’s 500 freestyle Championship final. Teammates Eric Grimes and Tommy Kealy touched first and second in 4:25.11 and 4:27.88. Delaware’s Cory Camp is the third seed in 4:28.33.
The Tribe dominated the 200 IM, as well, taking six of the top eight seeds, including the top four. Jeremiah O’Donnell, Will Manion, and Josh Zimmt touched in times of 1:48.15, 1:48.91, and 1:49.10. O’Donnell’s CAA record of 1:46.38 could be threatened by multiple swimmers tonight.
