Ella Eastin and Brooke Forde will both be key members of the two-time defending National Champion Stanford Cardinal this season.
Ella Eastin will contest the 400 IM on day 3 of the Pac-12 Championships after sitting out of the 200 yesterday.
We’re now through the second round of NCAA midseason invites and it’s time to take a look at where the division 1 teams stand. SwimSwam has put together a list of the top 16 times in each event up to this point.
Overall, it would seem from the outside that the Stanford women found a very solid foundation for their team chemistry.
Stanford’s freshman class had a strong debut, with 5 freshmen women and 4 freshmen men securing individual wins to help the Cardinal beat Utah.
Simone Manuel (second from left), Katie Ledecky (third from left) and Ella Eastin (right) were three of the top individual scorers at 2017 NCAAs, and their Stanford Cardinal are still the heavy NCAA favorites despite graduating Lia Neal (far left).
Brooke Forde headlines a scary good class at #1, the Stanford Cardinal.

One of the notable swims on the women’s side was the 100 fly, which saw UNC’s Hellen Moffitt swim to a convincing win. Moffitt posted the only sub-1:00 of the evening to win in 59.13.
