    Nathaniel Bentley looks like this year DIII men’s nationals will take anyone who can legally complete the 200 IM. Should be a good field. Analysts anticipating at least 4 guys under 3:00 this year.

      Honestly I’m surprised they put a 1650 on there as a cut. Usually if you swim it, they kinda just let you in so they can fill out two heats

      Why are you talking smack? You wouldn’t qualify for any event.

    • HwaMin Sim

      Tim Scanlan why you talking smack? You wouldn’t qualify for a single event

    • HwaMin Sim

      Tim Scanlan you’re entire d1 team couldn’t beat d3 freshmen in the 200 IM, 200 breast, 100 fly, and the 400 IM

    • Kalina Grace Emaus

      Nathaniel Bentley can I ask with all kindness what you are talking about? I’ve known people over 20 seconds faster than B cuts who don’t get invites in the 1650. It’s a very hard race to achieve a B cut in let alone get into the meet.

    • Anne Emaus

      Nathaniel Bentley there are many qualifiers sitting home not getting the invite

    • Leslie Cichocki

      Christian Locke I’m assuming they are yards.

    • Danilo Trias

      Christian Locke college does 25 yard pool. Most coaches are interested in kids LCM times but don’t put a lot of weight in them. They only want SCY times when recruiting

      At the beginning it states short course …. short course means yards.

      As far as I know there’s no restriction on Para swimmers being members of college teams.
