Austin Katz became the first high school Class of 2017 grad to win an individual NCAA title, and more than half of our top-20-ranked recruits scored significant points at the 2018 NCAA Championships as freshmen.
Cal and USC battled for the win, with USC narrowly pulling it out in 1:21.82 to Cal’s 1:21.88. The Bears, though they finished 2nd, set a new American Record.
Cal could swap Justin Lynch to fly on the 400 medley relay, throwing in Ryan Hoffer or Michael Jensen as they seek to run down Indiana for the NCAA title.
6 different programs have season-best composite times that add up within a second of one another in an event that could turn the tides of the entire meet.
There are several men in contention for the title. Four of them are Longhorns. Austin Katz is the top seed, but Harvard’s Dean Farris has also been sub-1:39 this season.
Caeleb Dressel and the Florida Gators come in as the top seed in the 200 medley relay.
Yesterday, I scored out the D1 men’s pre selection psych sheet. This exercise gives us some idea of how teams…
Cal’s Andrew Seliskar, who won the 200 fly last season, is changing things up this time around as he’ll battle for a title in the 200 breast.
The 4th day of the meet includes the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, 1650, and 400 free relay.
Arizona State’s Cameron Craig looks to repeat as Pac-12 Champion in the 200 free. He’s the top seed for tonight’s final.
Day 3 of the meet will feature the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, and 100 back. Cameron Craig will look to defend his 200 free title and meet record.
The team battle between Cal and Stanford is heating up, with each having 10 A finalists.
Ryan Hoffer and the Cal Bears got off to a fast start as they dominated the 200 medley relay, but Arizona’s Chatham Dobbs had a strong showing with a 19.74 fly split to help the Wildcats to silver.
