You’ll never guess who we ranked #1… Ok, you might. But there are a few interesting offseason shake-ups, including one team outside the top 10 last year bringing in two impact transfers to surge towards the top 5.
USC has only a small freshman class, but blue-chip breaststroker Margaret Aroesty has potential to become a bona fide star.
Hungarian Olympian and new Florida Gator Liliana Szilagyi might be the best international pickup for any NCAA team’s 2017 freshman class.
“I am excited to announce that I will be transferring to the University of Tennessee this fall!”
Stanford’s Simone Manuel and Katie Ledecky are the heavy favorites, and both have already been 2 seconds faster than what it took to win the NCAA title last season.
Kathleen Baker headlines the 200 back, but Ally Howe, who smashed the 100 back American Record last night, will look for a sweep of the backstrokes.
Day 4 brings competiton in the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, 1650 free, and platform diving.
The Cardinal’s Janet Hu will headline a double, as she’s the top seed in the 100 fly and 100 back after setting Meet Records in both this morning.
Becca Mann was a double winner in two of her specialties–the 500 and 1000 freestyles–on Saturday afternoon in USC’s victory over Utah
USC had the fastest leadoff swimmer, with Dylan Carter blasting a 1:32.62 to help the Trojans to their 2nd place finish.
Santo Condorelli had a win in the 50 free for USC, as the men battled to what was initially a tie with ASU on Friday. A later re-score gave the meet to Bob Bowman’s crew. The Trojan women were victorious over the Sun Devils.
Stanzi Moseley, Becca Mann, and Tatum Wade each won 2 individual races for the Trojans in their first home meet.
The Trojans have brought in more than enough talent to keep their relays intact, and could easily find themselves matching or improving on their 6th place finish from last season.
USC All-American Evan Swenson is missing from the swimming roster, but you can still catch her competing in the pool for the Trojans this NCAA season.
