The top stars from the USA National Team and the Pac-12 Conference square off tonight and tomorrow in the 25 yard pool at the 2017 USA College Challenge.
Think Caeleb Dressel is going to win three events again this year? So do we.
Incoming freshman Ryan Hoffer is a huge addition for the Bears and will play a big role on the relays in addition to being a key player individually. He’s already fast enough to have scored big in both sprints at 2017 NCAAs.
Caeleb Dressel will swim for his collegiate legacy in his senior year with the Florida Gators.
Chase Kalisz will contest his best event tonight, the 400 IM, and look to add his name to the U.S. World Championship roster.
Kevin Cordes is the American record-holder, but he’ll have Olympic bronze medalist Cody Miller on his tail in the 50 breast at U.S. Nationals.
Top ranked recruit Reece Whitley has announced his verbal commitment to Cal for the 2018-19 season.
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.
Follow along for a live recap of day 3 prelims from Santa Clara.
U.S. Olympian Abbey Weitzeil went head-to-head with fellow Cal All-Americans Farida Osman and Amy Bilquist in the 50 free.
It’s been a nightmare of a week for California. Junior Connor Hoppe was disqualified out of heats of the 200 breaststroke Saturday morning, marking a third DQ of a scoring swimmer for Cal in this meet.
Though they finished 2nd to Texas, the Bears took down the American Record in a blistering 3:01.51. That took down the former American Record mark of 3:01.60 set by Cal at the 2015 NCAA Meet.
The 400 medleys could see a few major lineup shakeups among the top teams after a wild prelims session. Most notably, Cal could swap out as many as three of four legs after barely squeaking into tonight’s final after Alabama DQ’d.
Ryan Murphy will look to lead Cal back to the top of the podium in the 200 medley relay.
The Stanford men, led in part by freshman Grant Shoults (pictured), took the Pac-12 team title tonight.
