With the 2018 NCAA D1 Women’s Championships over and done with, let’s compare our final Power Rankings to the actual finish.
The reigning NCAA champions are featured in each of tonight’s individual races: Stanford’s Katie Ledecky (500 free), Cal’s Kathleen Baker (200 IM), and Stanford’s Simone Manuel (50 free).
Katie Ledecky swims the 500 free on day 2 of the Women’s Pac-12 Championships.
Cal came within .03 of the NCAA Record, with Kathleen Baker on top of her game as she posted a 23.59 back split.
The Stanford women are the heavy favorites to take the 2018 Pac-12 crown and successfully defend their 2017 title, which was their first since 2014.
Simone Manuel is back in action for Stanford. But can they keep their hold on the #1 rank? Yes. The answer is obviously yes. Were you seriously wondering?
