 Blaul has swam a career best 1:49.66 in the 200 IM, which would move him into title contention if achieved at the section finals.
 Gabilan Division 500 free champion Parker Costa will go into the meet vying for a spot in the finals for Monterey, as he's seeded No. 10 at 4:45.94.
 Carmel's dynamic dual in diving in JeanPaul Ditto and Leo Gonzalez-Smith are in state contention as Ditto is ranked fifth and Gonzalez-Smith sixth.
 Nicolas Sullivan is ranked 12th in the section in the 200 free (1:44.63) for Palma, just a arms length ahead of Costa at 1:44.91.
