Top 16 Women in Each Event Through the NCAA Midseason Break

The 2nd round of 2016 midseason invites for NCAA teams are now in the books, with several swimmers posting the top times in the nation at the Georgia Invite and Texas Invite. We’ve put together a list of the top 10 NCAA swimmers in each event up to this point. The lists in this article only include top times for the women. The men’s version will be published shortly.

Observations:

  • The UGA Fall Invitational produced the most individual top 16 times, with 48 swims from that meet making the lists.
  • Stanford has the most individual swims total on these lists at 24. They have at least 1 swimmer in every event except the breaststrokes.
  • Cal, Georgia, and Stanford are all tied for the most swimmers on the lists at 9 each.
  • There are 4 swimmers ranked #1 in multiple individual events: Olivia Smoliga, Katie Ledecky, Ella Eastin, and Lilly King.
  • Stanford has the most #1 ranked individual swimmers with 5 total.
  • Cal is the only team with multiple #1 ranked relays.

(Note: The times listed are from the USA Swimming database, so if any swimmers are missing from the list that should be on it, we’ll update accordingly)
