With divers yet to go, the Georgia women are the only team with a full roster of 18 athletes so far.
Texas A&M’s Liili Ibanez was 6th at NCAA’s last season in the 200 free. This season, by our math, she was the second-to-last swimmer to qualify.

Florida freshman Caeleb Dressel took his first really solid rested crack at a 200 IM on Friday, and the result was fairly impressive.
