Missy Franklin and Cal broke the American record in the 800 free relay at Pac-12s, but they’ll have to fight off previous record-holders Georgia for the NCAA crown.
Missy Franklin is the defending NCAA champ and American record-holder in the 200 free, where she and Stanford’s Simone Manuel are on the precipice of a historic barrier.
Freshman star Cierra Runge is the NCAA record holder in the 500 free, but it’s no easy task to hold off swimmers like Leah Smith and Brittany Maclean.
She is currently the top ranked NCAA swimmer in both the 500 and 1650, and second in the nation in those events behind only Katie Ledecky. She swam a 4:31.90 and a 15:40.17 at the PAC 12 Championships, setting a new NCAA record in the 500 and a PAC 12 meet record in the 1650.
