Stanford women’s swimming and diving officially welcomed the Class of 2022 on Thursday. Nine future Cardinal — Zoe Bartel, Amalie Fackenthal, Anya Goeders, Daria Lenz, Lucie Nordman, Allie Raab, Taylor Ruck, Carolina Sculti and Morgan Tankersly — will join the program next season as announced by head coach Greg Meehan.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this class,” said Meehan, the Paul A. Violich Director of Women’s Swimming. “This group of young women will bring a high level of athleticism to our program, but just as important, they each bring a personal touch I believe will make our team better every day. On their official visit weekend, it was very clear how connected they were with each other, and how much they are going to add to the dynamic of the team culture.”
The seven swimmers of the Class of 2022 hails from seven different states and all four time zones — Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Tennessee and Texas.
“Tracy Slusser and Patrick Jeffrey have been vital to our recruiting success, and we are pleased to have a top three recruiting class for the fourth straight year. But we are most proud of the women that this program is producing – they have embraced the scholar-athleticism of Stanford swimming & diving, and are achieving in all facets of their lives.”
Stanford has also secured arguably the top two women’s diving recruits in the Class of 2022 in Lenz and Sculti.
“This is a very strong class with a ton of potential,” said Jeffrey, who is in his fourth season as Stanford’s head diving coach. “Both divers are known for their work ethic and share the desire to reach the next level. I love their fit with our team culture and I’m really excited to start working with them.”
