The 400 IM American Record changed hands last season between Stanford teammates Katie Ledecky and Ella Eastin. Now that Ledecky has dropped the 200 free for the 400 IM at NCAAs, who will capture the title (and possibly the American Record) at the big showdown?

Tennessee’s Erika Brown wasn’t even an individual qualifier for NCAAs last season, but now she’s got her eyes on the 100 fly title.
