CSCAA Names 973 Candidates for 100 Greatest College Swimmers of All-Time List

The Collegiate Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) has announced a list of 973 candidates that will be considered for the list of American college swimming’s greatest-ever swimmers and divers.

The group, which is a trade organization representing collegiate swim coaches, is running the program to celebrate its own 100 year anniversary, though it considered swimmers from even further ago.

The organization is also honoring 100 Great and Pioneering Coaches100 Alumni of Impact, and Centennial MVPs for each team. Nominations for these awards are still being accepted at https://www.cscaa.org/centennial.

The 973 candidates, chosen from 2,805 nominees, now go to a blue ribbon committee, including SwimSwam CEO and co-founder Mel Stewart (who is not a candidate for the award).

Athletes were chosen from across the three divisions of NCAA swimming & diving, plus the NAIA, and DGWS/AIAW (the predecessors to NCAA women’s athletics). NJCAA and other two-year college programs’ athletes were considered only in context of their continued careers at four year programs.

From the top tier of American collegiate swimming, NCAA Division I, the leading programs were the Stanford women (20 candidates) and Michigan men (23 candidates).

Across all divisions of college swimming, Kenyon led all schools with 31 men’s finalists, followed by Simon Fraser (27) and Drury (26). With 28, Simon Fraser had the most women’s finalists, while Kenyon followed with nineteen.

  • Full list of teams, in alphabetical order, with finalists named are at the end of this article.

NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and NAIA programs dominate the lists of schools with the most nominees, in spite of not being as hold – Division II and Division III competition didn’t begin until 1973. This is the impact of a much smaller pool of schools that have dominated swimming in those smaller divisions.

Drury, for example, has won 12 NCAA Division II titles on the men’s side and 10 on the women’s side. In combination, that is far more than any other program.

In Division III, the Kenyon women have won 23 out of 38 all-time titles, while the Kenyon men have won 34 out of a 45 possible titles.

Simon Fraser, currently an NCAA Division II program and the only NCAA school located in Canada, had stretches of domination in the NAIA in the 1970s and early 2000s. Drury also had a run of success in the NAIA in the 80s and 90s.

The selections appear to consider competitors’ success against their own divisions of swimming, setting aside the relative strength of the competition within divisions themselves.

At least 20 Tokyo Olympians were named to the list, includingFlorida’s Kieran Smith, Bobby Finke, and Caeleb Dressel, Maggie MacNeill (Michigan) Brandon Loschiavo (Purdue), Paige Madden (Virginia), Andrew Wilson (Emory), Texas’s Jordan Windle and Townley Haas, Georgia’s Allison Schmitt, Olivia Smoliga, and Chase Kalisz, Indiana’s Lily King and Andrew Capobianco and Tom Shields, Ryan Murphy, Nathan Adrian, and Andrew Selkisar from California.

Many of those, including Finke, MacNeil, and Windle, are still active collegiate competitors.

Among the oldest competitors is Ralph Breyer and Richard Howell of Northwestern, who combined to sweep the freestyle events (100, 200, 400, and 1500 meters) at the first NCAA championships in 1924. Arthur Rule of Navy, who won the 100 meter back in 1924, is also on the list.

The phrasing around Mel not being on the list in the article made me laugh because it felt like it was 90% for transparency and 10% spicy.

A lot of names missing you’d expect to see on here. Dean Farris being a big one. 2x Ncaa champion and current American record holder?

My guess, given that the list is a combination of divisions is that NCAA records (divisional) > American record for this purpose and the number of swimmers with 2 NCAA wins and a record is probably well over 100.

Caeleb Remel Dressel is the greatest of all time.

Natalie Coughlin 11/12 NCAA individual titles, 61-0 dual meet record go brr

Shhhhhh

Not saying your wrong but we must admit women are going to have more titles than men it’s just two hard to dominate as a freshmen.

Remel Dressel is the best swimmer of all time

Nah, she can’t go 17.6.

Caeleb Remel Dressel is making top sprinters look like kids. Winning the 50 by 1 second is next level.
