Our women’s NCAA swimming & diving ranks had a change at #1… will our men’s ranks do the same? There’s a lot to unpack after mid-season invites.
Texas Sophomore Drew Kibler put up the fastest prelims time in the 200 free, and will swim for a second event title after winning the 500 free last night.
The depth is outstanding, especially with elite freshmen and transfers incoming. The task will be swimming best times at NCAAs – an issue in 2019.
Our top four classes include three perennial NCAA title contenders… and one program you might not expect. Pictured: #2 overall recruit Jake Foster.

Maggie Wanezek first broke 1:03.0 in May, going 1:02.34 to qualify for Olympic Trials. This is now her third instance under 1:03 and her best time.
Brendan Burns takes over as our #1 swimmer in a class that should help college teams stock up their cupboards with free relay candidates for years to come.
