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.
