Stanford Women Lead 2018 D1 All-Americans List with 16 Athletes

The CSCAA released its All-Americans list this past Thursday, April 5th, with the Stanford women leading the way in Division 1 with 16 athletes achieving All-American status.

In total, 9 Division I teams on the women’s side had at least 10 athletes achieve All-American status.

2018 DI Women’s All-American Leaders

  • Stanford (16 athletes)
  • Ohio State (13)
  • Texas A&M (12)
  • Texas (11)
  • Michigan (11)
  • Indiana (11)
  • Virginia (10)
  • Mizzou (10)
  • Louisville (10)

Based on Stanford’s dominant 2018 NCAA performance, it comes as no surprise that they led the country with 16 different athletes garnering All-American honors in diving, individual performances, or as part of relays.

Notably, Ohio State isn’t who one might expect would be ranked 2nd in the nation with amount of All-Americans on their team from this season, after the Buckeyes finished only 13th at NCAAs. OSU had a lot of different relay pieces on their scoring relays, though, which makes more sense.

Meanwhile, the Cal women only produced 9 All-Americans, but were still able to claim 2nd in the team race. Their scorers were mostly big scorers– for example, Kathleen Baker dominated with seven First Team recognitions and Abbey Weitzeil did so with six First Team recognitions.

For Division II women, Queens had the most All-Americans with 14, while Kenyon ruled Division III with 18.
