Previews & Recaps
Cammile Adams (right) and Maya DiRado (left) will battle it out in the meet’s final individual event – the 200 fly. They both represented the U.S. in that event at the 2013 World Championships.
Women’s D1 NCAA Day 3 Ups/Downs and projected final scores: A&M makes late charge, Stanford still second
Breeja Larson and the Aggies followed up a big Friday night with an even better Saturday morning, picking up 26 points from their seeds and have an outside shot to enter the battle for second with one more great session.
Nicole Vernon helped power Georgia to a big day 2 lead by winning the B-Final in the women’s 400 IM.
Texas A&M’s Breeja Larson got one of two NCAA Records on the second night of the 2014 NCAA Championships.
Georgia sophomore Brittany MacLean comes in with the time to beat in the mile, but there are a lot of veterans who are looking to take the crown.
Division I Women’s NCAAs: Day 2 Ups/Downs and Prelims Scoring: Big day for Cal but Georgia hangs tough
Teri McKeever’s group leads the meet in both A- and B-Finalists and actually gained two points from seeds despite a costly relay DQ. But Georgia hung tough and is seeded to outscore the Golden Bears by 17.
Stanford had a big night, sweeping the relays to leapfrog Cal for second place. Tomorrow looks like Cal’s biggest day, though, so Georgia and Stanford will have to keep their guards up.
Lia Neal’s huge anchor leg pushed Stanford past Texas A&M to break American and NCAA records.
Georgia already has 11 point-scoring swims and dive slots tonight and has moved up 4 points from its seeds.
The first points are on the board at the 2014 Women’s Division I NCAA Championships.
Lili Ibanez had a big anchor for A&M as they are getting close to the NCAA Record in the 400 medley relay.
Missy Franklin is a scary sight for opposing teams in this relay, but Georgia has their own dominant line-up, led by Shannon Vreeland, to help counter Cal’s Bears.
Melanie Margalis has had the best short course season of her career. Can she close our her collegiate years with an NCAA title?
Three of the top contenders will look to star freshmen to power their programs to the top of the podium at the final event of the NCAA Championships.
The very first event of the 2014 NCAA Championships will go a long way in telling who showed up to swim and who doesn’t look ready for the bright lights and intense pressure of a national championship final. Look for top-seeded Georgia to set the tone early.
The 100 fly could go any number of ways over the top 16 – Ellese Zalewski and Dani Barbiea come in tied for the top seed after big November performances.
It’s a star-studded event, the top six or seven coming in with practically interchangeable seed times. We give the nod to Cal’s Missy Franklin, on whom the Bears will be counting for big points in this event. Somehow we expect that will make her even better.
Elizabeth Beisel looks to end her final day at the NCAA Championships a winner, but a studly group of sophomores including defending champ Liz Pelton (above) may spoil her exit.
The biggest 5 or 6 conferences tend to dominate the headlines, but they’re far from the only homes for fast swimming. Meet 6 women with top-10 NCAA seeds coming from the smaller conferences.
The marquee matchup pits American record-holder Emma Reaney of Notre Dame against the woman whose record she broke just a few weeks ago, Texas A&M’s Breeja Larson. But a tough field should make this more than a 2-horse race.
Join SwimSwam’s Mitch Bowmile as he reviews all of the action from last weekend’s NCAA Championships for the Division I women.
