Clarification of Selection Process (updated)

We have 5 Men who will be invited to swim individual events:
Clark - 100 Back (13)
Fong - 200 Fly (20)
Schubert - 200 Fly (27)
Quinn - 400 IM (28)
Whiteside - 100 Free (29)

Our 400 Free Relay hit an "A" cut; therefore, we are permitted to bring 4 additional relay-only swimmers. Although I think that the language of the rule is confusing, the 4 men on this relay are not invited. They, or any other eligible swimmer, may come on the school's dime.

We will likely take Matt Lockman, Bryce Keblish, Luke Georgiadis, and Alex Albracht.

We have provisional cuts in the 200 FR, 800 FR and 400 MR. We can swim these in addition to the 400 FR. We can not swim the 200 MR.

Bryce Shelton has qualified for NCAAs in diving. He may get paid for by the NCAA (it's complicated to explain), but he will be able to dive 1M, 3M and assuming he does well tomorrow, Platform.

10 Men at NCAAs. Last year: 2 (Yannick Kaeser and Zach Fong). Several more were very close (notably, Sam Magnan in the 500). Things are definitely looking up!
