Georgia Men and the Tennessee Women lead the pack going into the final night of the 2019 Tennessee Invite in Knoxville.
Sophomore Alexis Wenger (above) split 26.49 on the breaststroke leg, which is faster than anyone besides Lilly King went at NCAAs last season.
A trio of women, including Erika Brown (above), Kate Douglass, and Zoie Hartmann, are in a position to make history on Friday evening in Knoxville.
UVA freshman star Kate Douglass kicked off her meet with yet another personal best in the 200 IM , taking the top seed in the event with a 1:54.30
Freshman Kate Douglass continues to throw down NCAA-leading times, and Virginia leads Wisconsin after the first day of their weekend dual meet.
Tennesse sprint star Erika Brown won three individual events, all NCAA-leading times, as the Volunteers defeated the Cavaliers at home.
UVA is without a doubt in a stronger place heading into this season than last season, thanks in large part to the #1 recruiting class this year.
The Virginia Sports Information Directors named two all-state teams with 32 athletes and 11 relays earning all-state nods.
Defending champ Mallory Comerford of Louisville is eyeing Missy Franklin’s record in the 200 free.
Stanford’s Brooke Forde, the 500 free champion, is on fire.
Stanford opted to put Taylor Ruck on both the 200 free and the 400 medley relays this morning. Since she was already on the 800 free relay last night, that’ll mean she’ll need to sit out either the 200 medley or the 400 free relay, with the former seeming to be the more likely option.
The Cal Bears come in with the fastest time this season in the 400 medley relay, and they appear to be the favorites to put an end to Stanford’s winning streak in this event.
Cal was within .07 of winning this relay last year and returns all four legs, including two potential 20-point splits.
USC’s Louise Hansson and Michigan’s Maggie MacNeil could have an exciting battle in the 100 fly as both swimmers have been under 50 seconds multiple times in their careers.
This year’s field of 100 freestylers includes 4 of the top 10 fastest performers of all time, and 6 of the top 20 performers all-time.
