Arizona State freshman Brendan Weiner will get his first taste of the Pac-12 championships when the meet opens Thursday morning at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.
Weiner, a 2011 Central Kitsap product, will swim in the 500-yard freestyle at 11 a.m. in the preliminaries. Weiner is seeded 54th. Finals are at 6 p.m. He is also slated to swim in the 200 freestyle on Friday, he’s seeded 73rd, and the 1,650 (mile) freestyle on Saturday. Those finals begin at 4 p.m.
I’ll note that Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian holds the Pac-12 record in both the 50 and 100 freestyles. Adrian, a California grad, set the 50 mark in 2011 in 18.66 seconds and the 100 in 2009 in 41.08.
