Observations:

  • Dean Farris is swimming the 100 back over the 200 free this year for the first time in his college career.
  • Townley Haas is only seeded to score in the A-Final in the 200 free
  • Justin Ress is swimming the 100 back at NCAA for the first time in his career. He was third at Nationals in the summer in the 100 back.
  • John Shebat is swimming the 200 IM for the first time in his college career. He has never had a third event at NCAAs.
  • NC State, the two-time defending NCAA champions in the 800 free relay, will not be in the fastest seeded heat in that event, despite returning three of the four swimmers from last year’s relay.
  • Auburn is only projected to finish 25th, which would be its worst finish in school history. The Tigers were as low as 22nd in 1989.
  • Indiana is projected to have its highest finish since 1975. The Hoosiers last won a team title in 1973.
  • Missouri has never had more than 12 swimmers qualified for the meet.

    RE: “Auburn is only projected to finish 25th, which would be its worst finish in school history. The Tigers were as low as 22nd in 1989.”
    How far back did you go for this tidbit? Auburn swimming began in 1932. (Some coach named Eddie Reese got them to 17th in 1974.)
