Stanford has a lot of options for their medley relays this year. I wonder if Felicia lee will swim the back or fly, maddy Schaefer could do the back or free, freshmen Nicole stafford could step in on the fly, and lia Neal on the free. Haase or Olsen doing the breast? And then if need be Dirado could always step in on the free or back.

I think the best option would be Schaefer-haase-lee-Neal. This team is going to have a great season!!


Slow times for the men.
