Two of the top NCAA women’s programs held one of the final dual meets of the season on Saturday, February 12th. The Stanford women defeated Cal in a score of 167-133. Neither of the teams wore technical racing suits for the meet.
Highlighting the meet was Stanford freshman Regan Smith who continued her undefeated dual meet streak as she won the 200 backstroke in a time of 1:50.72 and the 200 butterfly in a time of 1:54.51. Her 200 backstroke is the fastest dual meet time ever, and her 200 butterfly was a dual meet best time.
Torri Huske also led the way for Stanford as she won both the 50 freestyle (22.28) and 100 butterfly (51.92). Both were dual meet best times as well. Huske currently holds the #3 time in the NCAA this season in the 50 freestyle as she went a 21.70 at midseason. She also holds the #3 time in the NCAA this season in the 100 butterfly going 50.30 at midseason.
Stanford earned a big boost from the diving events as they went 1-2-3 in both the 1 and 3 meter. Daria Lenz won the 1 meter in a score of 309.30 and Maria Papworth won the 3 meter in a score of 421.73. Without either diving being scored at all, Stanford still would have won the meet in a score of 135-127.
Stanford also won both relays, helping propel them to the win. The team of Smith, Allie Raab, Emma Wheal, and Anya Goeders finished the 200 medley in a time of 1:36.82. Smith swam a key backstroke leg leading off in a 23.96, the only split under 24 seconds in the field. Huske swam on Stanford’s B relay going the fastest butterfly split of 22.58.
The 400 freestyle relay of Emma Wheal, Taylor Ruck, Amy Tang, and Torri Huske swam to a win in a time of 3:16.13. It was a close race between the Stanford A and Cal A relays as the two teams were separated by less than a tenth going into the final leg. Huske anchored in a key 48.37 to help give the Cardinal the win. That split was also the fastest split of any leg in the field.
Cal was led by Isabel Ivey who earned three individual wins on the day. Ivey won the 200 freestyle (1:44.40), 100 freestyle (48.39), and 200 IM (1:57.98). All three were dual meet best times for Ivey this season. Ivey’s season best of 1:53.90 in the 200 IM places her at #3 in the NCAA this season. Her season best of 47.57 in the 100 freestyle is #4, and her season best of 1:43.13 in the 200 freestyle is #3.
Isabelle Stadden won the 100 backstroke in a dual meet best time of 52.42 and finished second in the 200 backstroke behind Smith in a time of 1:53.18. Stadden holds the #3 time in the NCAA this season in the 200 backstroke as she went a 1:50.02 at midseason.
