  • 2020 NCAA “A” Cut – 4:03.62
  • 2020 NCAA “B” Cut – 4:17.30
  • 2019 NCAA Invited Time – 4:10.00
  1. Brooke Forde, Stanford – 4:03.86
  2. Allie Szekely, Stanford – 4:05.91
  3. Hannah Kukurugya, Stanford – 4:10.10

The Stanford women went 1-2-3 in the women’s 400 IM, led by Brooke Forde, who was 3rd at last year’s NCAA Championships. Her winning time of 4:03.86 is a full second faster than she was mid-season last year. Her regular-season best time actually came in a dual meet in late January before dropping at Pac-12s and then again at NCAAs.

Szekely followed a very similar pattern last season, but her time on Friday is even more encouraging: it’s better than her season-best time from last year’s NCAA Championship meet.

Wonder if he gets the same attention at home? :>)
