Cal Men Overtake Indiana For CSCAA’s #1 Dual Meet Rank For Dec 6

Note: SwimSwam does not have a voting stake in the CSCAA Awards, which focus on dual meet viability. For rankings more geared towards NCAA prediction, stay tuned for our next round of Power Rankings, beginning next week.

After an impressive fall season capped by huge swims at the Georgia Invite, the California men are ranked #1 in the latest CSCAA (College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America) rankings released today.

The Cal men have the nation’s top time in 4 of 5 relays, missing only the 800 free where they are second to Texas. The Longhorns, meanwhile, overcame a lackluster fall that saw them drop to 9th in these ranks by jumping back to #2 after a home invite.

NC State is third and former #1 Indiana slides down to 4th in the most recent ranks.

It was fun to have IU at #1 for a while… They have one of the best pro groups in the country, I’m excited to see how the college team continues to progress

i wonder what happened to Michigan/CW’s pro-group? Seem to be non-existent now

Alabama #17?
