Nine swimmers earned All-America honors to pace the Stanford women’s swimming and diving team to an eighth-place finish at the 2013 NCAA Championships this weekend in Indianapolis. It was the Cardinal’s 33rd consecutive top-10 finish at the NCAAs.
Two of the nation’s strongest women’s swimming squads will clash on Saturday in what figures to be a hard-fought battle. No. 2 Stanford (7-1, 4-0 Pac-12) and No. 7 Cal (6-2, 2-2) will once again fight for supremacy of the Bay Area in the final regular-season dual meet of the season.
The women’s swimming and diving team can go into the midseason break feeling confident after taking second at the three-day Ohio State Invitational last weekend. The men’s divers will also be encouraged by their accomplishments in Columbus, Ohio, highlighted by sophomore Kristian Ipsen’s sweep of the 1-meter and 3-meter diving competitions.
Former Cal men’s swimming and diving associate head coach Greg Meehan will take the helm of the Stanford women’s swimming and diving program, officially announced by Stanford athletics director Bernard Muir on Monday.
