The 2017 Women’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships continue this morning with prelims of the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back, 200 medley relay, and 3-meter diving.
The favorite to win this race is Stanford’s Ally Howe, who broke Natalie Coughlin’s American Record and became the first woman to clear the 50 second barrier since 2002 at the 2017 Pac-12 Championships.
After making the podium at the 2016 Rio Olympis, Cal backstroker Kathleen Baker has been looking to move up in the yards pool.
Women’s NCAA conference championships have wrapped up, meaning it’s time for our last Power Rankings of the season. Stanford is still the runaway #1 team in the land, but the rest of the top 20 has shuffled up pretty considerably as more teams start to show their cards in the hunt for NCAA invites.
Smoliga shined for the Bulldogs, but her team came up just short against a rock-solid Texas A&M team.
The men’s 200 breast is one of the top races to watch, with Auburn’s defending SEC champ Michael Duderstadt, Missouri’s Fabian Schwingenschlogl, Alabama’s Anton McKee, and South Carolina’s Nils Wich-Glasen contending.
Florida standouts Caeleb Dressel and Maxime Rooney will take on the 100 free alongside Missouri’s Michael Chadwick, as will Georgia’s defending NCAA champ Olivia Smoliga in the women’s race.
Missouri’s Hannah Stevens and Georgia’s Olivia Smoliga are closely matched in the 100 back, but Tennessee All-American Kira Toussaint will also be in the mix.
Day 4 prelims at the 2017 SEC Swimming and Diving Championships in Knoxville, Tennessee bring competition in the 200 fly, 100 back, 100 breast, and women’s platform diving.
Texas A&M holds the lead on both the men’s and women’s sides as we head into day 2 prelims of the 2017 SEC Championships.
The 2016-17 NCAA postseason is slated to kick off next week with the 2017 SEC Championships at the Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center on the University of Tennessee’s campus.
Chadwick earned his first victory in the 100 breast, posting a 54.50 to outswim teammate Jordy Groters (55.80).
Texas is surging with a big win over Georgia, but no one can quite unseat Stanford at the top of our first Power Rankings of 2017. The Cardinal are still the team to beat, though midseason rest meets caused some major shakeups behind them.
Mizzou’s Michael Chadwick was a double winner for the Tigers on the way to Men’s and Women’s titles at the 2016 Show-Me Showdown.
