Think Caeleb Dressel is going to win three events again this year? So do we.
The USC swimming and diving teams kick off the 2017-18 seasons with non-conference meets this weekend as the women’s squad competes at the University of San Diego on Friday at 2 p.m. while the Trojan men swim at UC Santa Barbara on Friday at2 p.m. and at Cal Poly on Saturday at 11 a.m.
Caeleb Dressel will swim for his collegiate legacy in his senior year with the Florida Gators.
The Trojans have a stacked sprint free group that includes Olympic sprinters Santo Condorelli and Dylan Carter.
The men’s 100 breast field is as stacked as ever, and it looks like it’ll be just as tight a squeeze to make the team this summer as it was at last summer’s Olympic Trials.
Stanford won its 33rd Pac-12 title, but the Cal Bears showed that they’re ready to go toe-to-toe with Texas in a few weeks.
The Stanford men, led in part by freshman Grant Shoults (pictured), took the Pac-12 team title tonight.
One of the top races to watch this morning will be the men’s 100 free, as USC’S Dylan Carter and ASU’s Cameron Craig will go head-to-head in heat 6.
Olympic gold medalist and World Record holder Ryan Murphy will take on the 100 back tonight.
Cal’s Andrew Seliskar will look to set up a sweep of the IM events, while teammates Ryan Murphy (100 back) and Justin Lynch (100 fly) seek their first individual titles of the meet.
Ryan Murphy has left the door open to choose 3 out of 6 entered events at the Pac-12 Championships.
Stanford is one of the best teams in the country this year, but they’ll be battling a tough Cal team that also ranks among the best of the best.
Shoults swam to a 4:18.40 to win the race, finishing 4 seconds ahead of fellow Stanford freshman True Sweetser (4:22.53).
All-American sophomore Andrew Seliskar threw down a winning triple for the Cal bears as they defeated USC at home this Friday.
It’s still a dogfight at the top, with defending champs Texas playing their cards closer to the vest, California exploding at the Georgia Invite and NC State continuing to swim good opponents very tough.
