Nicole Oliva has verbally committed to Cal’s class of 2024.
Junior Abbey Weitzeil, who swept three individual events at the Pac-12 Championships and captured the national title in the 50-yard free, was named Cal’s Most Outstanding Swimmer at the team’s annual banquet.
We ranked Cal’s recruiting class #1 back in the summer of 2015. How did they hold up in actual NCAA scoring compared to a juggernaut class from Stanford?
A loaded women’s high school class of 2015 featured four 2016 U.S. Olympians and several more 2020 frontrunners. But who turned out to be the highest-scoring athlete in NCAA competition?
Looking back at the leadup to the 2019 Women’s NCAA Championships, we want to see where the “buzz” of the SwimSwam comment section was onto something… and where it wasn’t. How did your predictions fare? We track the results here.
The Cal women had a sensational week, leading the team battle going into the final day and ultimately winding up 2nd to Stanford by less then 40 points
Izzy Ivey, Katie McLaughlin, Amy Bilquist, and Abbey Weitzeil all break down what went into the fastest 400 free relay of all time
SwimSwam’s Jack Spitser was on deck to capture all of the exciting day 4 finals action.
This is McKeever’s 5th award, but first won when her team didn’t take home the title.
Stanford’s Taylor Ruck will race Wisconsin’s Beata Nelson for the 200 back title.
Cal was under Stanford’s American record, but Abbey Weitzeil was swimming with her armed wrapped, so the record is not official under USA Swimming rules.
In the 200 fly, we’ll see Stanford’s defending champ and NCAA Record holder Ella Eastin go up against USC’s Louise Hansson, who took down the 100 fly NCAA Record last night.
Cal’s Katie McLaughlin broke 50 for the first time, making her the 5th swimmer ever to break that barrier with a 49.97. That breaks Natalie Coughlin’s former Cal school record of 50.01.
A win would make her the first woman ever to 4-peat in both breaststroke distances in the NCAA.
