The Stanford Cardinal have been on fire since Greg Meehan took over as the team’s new head coach, from their long course exploits, to recruiting, and their collegiate swims.

The Cardinal ran their dual meet record for the season to a perfect 10-0 with a 167-133 win over archrivals Cal in Palo Alto on Saturday, and our Carly Geehr was there to take in all of the action. See her full report from the meet here, watch Carly talk to Geehr above, and see an interview with two of the team’s stars below.

Cal coaches and athletes were not made available for video interviews at the meet.

Some usual swimswam naysayers will say you are too biased to make impartial interviews with Stanford coaches and swimmers. 😆
Great job.
Cal swimmers and coaches were not made available for video interviews. Why? Because they have lost or for another reason?

It should be fun at Stanford in the next years, especially with their crazy good upcoming recruiting class.
