2019 WOMEN’S DIVISION I NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS

Despite not claiming the top seed in a single event (individual or relay), Cal followed up their strong performance from Thursday night – which included victories in both relays and an individual win from Abbey Weitzeil in the 50 free – with a big morning on Friday. The Golden Bears showcased their depth and amassed 10 individual finals swims (8 A-finals, 2 B-finals) to maintain striking distance within Stanford. The Cardinal will have 8 individual swims on Friday night (5 A-finals, 3 B-finals), followed by Michigan with 6 individual swims (5 A-finals, 1 B-final).

After day 2 finals on Thursday night, Stanford led Cal 173.5 to 173. While this meet seems too close to call now, the favor still lands with Stanford, barring any unexpected errors, thanks in large part to diving points.

I’m routing for Tennessee on this on this one but Cal looks like the favorites to me.

Cal may sub in swimmers (Isabel Ivey for Keaton Blovad on backstroke, Katie McLaughlin for Maddie Murphy on fly) where as Tennesse may swim their same order. Latter switch for Cal is unlikely since McLaughlin is probably swimming the 400 free relay tmrw.

Not saying it will, but how insane would it be if Cal pulled off the upset? Stanford’s incoming class was seemingly godlike compared to rest of D1, I love how no other schools are giving in and letting Stanford runaway with it! Both teams for Cal are really stepping up this season

Its an amazing turn around from the duel meet not that long ago. It sure feels like Cal is winning or at least having a lot better meet.

Teri really stepped up with developing swimmers. Example: Ema Rajic, who hadn’t broken the 1:00 barrier when she entered in August, now an A finalist and just broke 59 today.
