Pac-12 Swimming & Diving Conference Competition to Begin this Weekend

The Pac-12 is slated to begin its official in-conference swimming & diving competition this weekend with Washington State is hosting Utah on the 15th. This month will mark the first official meets of the season for several Pac-12 programs, while several others had a meet late in the fall.

The Arizona Wildcats have already competed this semester, attending an invite with UNLV last weekend, and Stanford and Cal faced off in a couple unofficial dual meets in the fall. That being said, Washington State vs Utah will be the first official Pac-12 dual of the season. Notably, Stanford and Cal will be facing off again in official men’s and women’s dual meets in February.

Stanford coaches emphasized that their schedules are tentative given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Arizona State made the decision to redshirt its entire swimming & diving roster for the 2020-2021 season, meaning they will not be competing in any official NCAA competitions this semester, however, the rest of the Pac-12 programs are participating this season.

The Pac-12 Championships are set in their typical calendar weekends, with the women’s championship and diving championship set for February 24-27, and the men’s championship March 3-6.

The location of those championships are pending, given that the King County Aquatic Center, where they were supposed to be held has been closed for the duration of the pandemic.

Don’t think Stanford or Cal announced their season yet(?). Also Federal Way Aquatics Center is still closed. Still scheduling Pac-12 championship?
I know Stanford swimmers (all winter sports athlete) had to quarantine like 14days after the return on campus last week.

Stanford coaches confirmed the above meets, though emphasized that they’re tentative for now (as is pretty much everything).

Cal’s meets were listed on their opponents’ schedules, but they have declined to answer directly about their schedule.

So confused

Such a tough year for the PAC-12 while they watch the ACC swim meet after meet. Hope they will actually be able to qualify, and swim, in the NCAAs.
