Thanks for the input. I was going to talk to a few of them about holding back in prelims but now I think I’ll just let them go for it for the most part. I’ll let her know she doesn’t need to go crazy on the last 50 if she’s winning her heat.

Maybe going fast in prelims will strike fear in the hearts of the other teams.

We did have 4 swimmers qualify first in prelims last year and wound up getting 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, and 3rd at finals. It’s much more fun to be the team that holds back than the team that looks like they got worse at finals (though they all went faster).
