new usa/ncaa/american record today...IN A TIME TRIAL!!!
1 Jack Conger SO TEX NT 1:39.31A
22.09 47.32 (25.23)
1:12.66 (25.34) 1:39.31 (26.65)
do ya think eddie will have him swim it at ncaa's? lol!!!
Cal women set new record in the 800 free relay at Pac-12s: http://swimswam.com/cal-women-smash-...issy-franklin/
My guesses for Conger:
50 FR maybe
100 FL yes
100 BK Probably
200 FR maybe
200 FL probably
200 BK maybe
Big 12 Conf meet results
What's ironic is Jack has the national high school record in the 500 free yet he isn't even mentioned to swim the 500.
Eddie will consider possible points and the also the toll that Jacks schedule of events is likely to take over the 3 days of NCAAs. To figure points he'll look at the depth of UT and possible competitors on other teams.
It will be harder for Jack to be fresh and race ready on day 2 and 3 of NCAAs, if on day 1, he races 2 hard 500s and a couple relays.
On Day 1, he's more likely to swim the 50 than the 500.
My guess for Day 1, is he just does relays then
doubles 100 fly & 100 bk on day 2 or the 200 fly & back on day 3, but if he does the 2 fly & bk on day 3 that's 4 hard races and if they need him on the 4x100 free relay, he won't be as fresh. So to me, doubling the 100 fly & back on day 2 and racing either the 200 fly or the 200 back on day 3, makes more sense.
UT has more depth & potential top scorers in the 200 fly than they do in the 200 back.
Further complicating things is he probably has a higher certainty to win the 2 fly than the 2 bk vs Ryan Murphy. Jack's having a great season and I can't wait to see how he & the horns do this season, this summer, next yr and at trials.
