College dual meets are notoriously tricky to weigh. Still, when an unranked team beats the #5 team in the nation at a neutral site, people take notice.
Notre Dame rookie Jack Hoagland rattled his own personal-best in the 500 free, part of a stellar freshman group for the Irish.
Australia’s Minna Atherton set the U.S. Open record in the 100 back twice in a row at the Lewisville stop of the International Swimming League season.
A big sprint weekend from senior Julie Meynen at the SMU Classic has the Auburn Tigers looking like a team on the rise in the NCAA.
More Swim of the Week

Alvin Jiang (now a Texas Longhorn after a transfer from UNC) hit a lifetime-best 100 fly at Texas’s very-fast Intrasquad meet.
NCAA season is upon us, and Abbey Weitzeil kicked it off with as much speed as we could ask for, blasting a 48.4 at the Queen of the Pool meet.
Japan’s Kosuke Matsui went 21.88 in a 50 free, a personal-best and near Japan’s Olympic selection cut that he’ll have to hit next spring.
19-year-old Shinnosuke Ishikawa is rising fast in the butterfly races – and that’s good news for Japan’s medley relay next summer.
China’s Zhang Yufei registered at least her fourth sub-58 swim in the 100 fly in the past seven weeks to win Chinese Nationals.
Franko Grgic is faster at age 16 than greats like Grant Hackett or Sun Yang were throughout their junior careers. He’s #6 in the world while still a teenager.
Jake Magahey, Luca Urlando, Jake Mitchell and Carson Foster went 7:08.37, the best U.S. relay this year outside of World Championships.
A 21.27 in the 50 free has set Vladimir Morozov up to earn $50,000. And that’s just the start of his potential World Cup windfall.
