We’ll go over who we’ll see racing on the women’s side, and break down our predictions for each round.
The 2018 TYR Pro Derby will be held at the University of Louisville on April 28th, featuring a shootout style set of heats of 50 freestyle.
We ranked Stanford’s class #1 back in the summer of 2014, and guess what? They delivered. Top-10 prospects Simone Manuel, Janet Hu (pictured), Ally Howe and Lindsey Engel averaged 100 individual NCAA points just between the four of them. That means without even considering relays, that quartet could have placed inside the top 15 at NCAAs every year of their career.
Simone Manuel threw down the 3rd-fastest 50 freestyle of all-time, defending her title in 21.18.
Stanford’s Katie Ledecky (500 free), Simone Manuel (50 free), and Ella Eastin (200 IM) are chasing their own records today as the Cardinal swimmers hold the NCAA Records in all 3 individual races.
