Much like the 2018 version of this meet we fully expect the team race to come down to the powerhouses in Indiana and Michigan. Two other teams to keep an eye on would be Ohio State and Wisconsin, but they’ll need some serious performances to chip away at the depth and high end potential coming from the Hoosiers and Wolverines. While some of the top end swimmers in the meet might not be fully tapered here that doesn’t mean we won’t see some legit swims coming out of people like King, and McHugh so don’t blink. With all of this being said, I don’t think anyone is going to be able to take down the Wolverines.

Momentum is going to be huge in this meet meaning a big night one from these teams will be absolutely necessary in order to jump start their push for the lead. Day two prelims are going to be huge and with a conference meet with as many teams as this one, filling the A and B finals with as many bodies as possible is going to win the meet. Getting your hand on the wall first is definitely important, but it’s going to be just as important - if not more important - in prelims than it will be in finals.


Swimmers To Watch:

Siobhan Haughey - Michigan

Sierra Schmidt - Michigan

Lilly King - IU

Kathrin Demler - OSU

Ally McHugh - Penn State

Vera Koprikova - Rutgers

Beata Nelson - Wisconsin

Para-Swimmer Roderick Sewell Is Redefining 'Multi-Sport Athlete'

Roderick Sewell

This year's Ironman world championships, held in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, were grueling by any standard of measure: a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile ride. For any person of any athletic ability at any point in history, a feat of that magnitude would be impressive — but what about a double above-the-knee amputee?
