The 2017 Women’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships continue this morning with prelims of the 200 free relay, 500 free, 200 IM, 50 free, 400 medley relay, and 1-meter diving.
Weitzeil was a part of Cal’s 800 free relay at Pac-12s, but they swapped her out for Kristen Vredeveld at NCAAs. This could be because she’s more valuable on the other relays, but it’s noteworthy because of her health issues following the 200 free at Pac-12s.
We’ve previewed each individual event for the women’s NCAA Championships, now it’s time to turn our focus to the broader issue of the NCAA team champion. Here’s our final predictions of the top 25 in the NCAA finish order.
The favorite to win this race is Stanford’s Ally Howe, who broke Natalie Coughlin’s American Record and became the first woman to clear the 50 second barrier since 2002 at the 2017 Pac-12 Championships.
Simone Manuel will look to lead Stanford back to the top of the podium in the 400 free relay.
After making the podium at the 2016 Rio Olympis, Cal backstroker Kathleen Baker has been looking to move up in the yards pool.
Women’s NCAA conference championships have wrapped up, meaning it’s time for our last Power Rankings of the season. Stanford is still the runaway #1 team in the land, but the rest of the top 20 has shuffled up pretty considerably as more teams start to show their cards in the hunt for NCAA invites.
