I can tell you there are quite a few with a real chance

I don’t want to jinx anyone but if the team was selected based on last summers times, Weyant would have made the team. Gretchen Walsh has an excellent shot to make it for the 400 free relay. So those two are probably 1A and 1B as far as having best shot. Alex Walsh has a real good shot in the 200IM and Back. Reagan Smith has one spot locked up in the back, so that doesn’t help... but the 200IM is kind of wide open, Kathleen Baker is making a very strong case with her recent swims too which won’t help Alex. Paige Madden has maybe the next best shot with her 200 free since top 6 will usually make the team. Finally, I did not forget any Douglas... I have no idea on her chances. I wouldn’t be shocked if she ended up 3rd in 6 different events. Her best shot seems to be 200 breast and she has smoked lily Kings in season best times, so I really want to hold back on predicting how she’ll do until I see her ncaa times. Oh, and Leah Smith should be there in at least the 400 free.

2024 is too far away, but I would be VERY shocked if there isn’t at least 1 hoo or future hoo on the US team this summer.
