We’ll see 3 reigning NCAA champions compete in their events tonight between Stanford’s Simone Manuel (100 free), Cal’s Kathleen Baker (200 back), and Stanford’s Ella Eastin (200 fly).
With her swim tonight, Eastin is now the first and only women to have broken 1:50 in a textile suit.
Baker turned in a new best time, taking down her own Pac-12 Meet Record by 6 hundredths as she hit the wall in 1:48.27.
Texas freshman Evie Pfeifer is seeking her 3rd title of the meet in the 1650 free.
Cole Buese is one of the Princeton men competing for tonight’s 200 fly title.
SwimSwam has put together the up/mid/down report for the final day of competition at women’s Pac-12s.
Stanford closed out night 3 of the 2018 Women’s Pac-12 Championships with a new American and NCAA Record in the 400 medley relay as they battled with rival Cal.
Hu is now the 4th fastest 100 backstroker in history, moving ahead of Natalie Coughlin, who became the first woman to break 50 seconds back in 2002.
Look out for Stanford’s Katie Ledecky, who will battle American Record holder Ella Eastin shortly before racing All-American teammate Simone Manuel in the 200 free.
After putting up a blistering 1:30.69 split on the 800 free relay, Farris hit a new best time in the individual 200 free.
Ledecky went up against American Record holder and teammate Ella Eastin in the 400 IM, reclaiming the American Record from Eastin and taking down Katinka Hosszu’s NCAA Record as she won the race in 3:56.53.
Among the swimmers to watch out for tonight on the men’s side are Texas All-Americans Joseph Schooling (100 fly), Jonathan Roberts (400 IM), and Townley Haas (200 free).
Harvard’s Brennan Novak is set to compete in the 1000 free tonight. Teammate Dean Farris headlines both the 200 free and 100 back.
Arizona and Arizona State will continue to battle for 3rd, but diving gives the Sun Devils a big advantage. USC looks to make up some ground in the battle for 3rd and have much more scoring potential tonight than they did in day 2 finals.
They’re now 3-for-3 in relay titles at this meet, with an American Record going down on Thursday night.
