VIDEO: Women’s NCAA Press Conference: Cal Coach McKeever, Olympians Rachel Bootsma and Missy Franklin
Tomorrow, the 2014 Women’s NCAAs begin in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Today, at the press conference, three schools spoke. In this post:…
Missy Franklin: ““I think for everyone on the team, when we put the California cap on there is so much more meaning behind it than just putting on a regular cap. For me, it is very similar to having an American flag on my cap.”
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.
The 17-18′s of SwimMAC Carolina broke their 3rd National Age Group relay record of the weekend with a 3:37.83 in…
The 17-18′s of the King Aquatic Club have broken the National Age Group Record in the 400 yard medley relay at the Federal Way Sectional Championship meet.
The women’s 100 backstroke field, which includes 2011 and 2012 NCAA champion Cindy Tran, is the deepest and fastest we’ve ever seen.
Florida’s Elizabeth Beisel will swim no first day event at this year’s NCAA Championship meet, and instead pull a tough 200 back/200 fly double.
Thanks in part to some untimely Cal DQ’s, Felicia Lee and the Stanford Cardinal enter day 3′s finals session with a lead at the Pac-12 Championships. She’s the top seed headed into the 100 fly early in the meet and will look to help Stanford maintain their lead.
Chuck Katis swam his first meet as a Golden Bear on Friday, and walked away with a win in the 200 breaststroke.
