“Calm” Before the Storm

So far, Day Two has been a little slow.  Four 500-yard prelim heats for both the men and women can do that.  But that hasn’t dissipated the atmosphere at the BUAC (Boston University Aquatics Center) at all.  While the fans are at standing room only capacity, it’s the teams that really set the tone for the meet.

With all seven teams standing and ringing the entire pool, it makes for an incredible place to watch these championships.

Heading to tonight, Jennifer Kotonias qualified fifth in the women’s 500.  Claire Barron and Ashley Sippel will swim in the consolation heat after placing 12th and 15th, respectively, in the overall prelims.

For the men, Pierre De Waal was the top qaulifier t in the distance event, while Rob Breen and Charlie Melesh will join him in  the final after placing third and sixth this morning.  Alex Moothart and Mark Garbowski will swim in the consolation meet for the Retrievers.
