Men’s swimming and diving begins new era

This weekend, the No. 10 men’s swimming and diving (0-0, 0-0 Pac-12) team will compete in their first meet of the season at the University of Pacific Invite in Stockton, CA. While there is a lot to like about this Cardinal team, the biggest topic of discussion is how the team will deal with the retirement of former head coach Ted Knapp and the graduation of key members like Abrahm DeVine and Brad Zdroik. This meet provides a first glance as to which swimmers will step up this season and how the team performs under new head coach Dan Schemmel.

Women’s swimming and diving preps for season opener against Arkansas

This Saturday at noon, No. 1 Stanford women’s swimming and diving (0-0, 0-0 Pac-12) is set to take on Arkansas (1-0, 0-0 SEC) at Avery Aquatic Center for the opening meet of the season. Stanford swimming is riding on a long winning streak; their last duel meet loss was in 2015 and their last loss at home was in 2014. As the three-time defending national champions, the Cardinal has a big reputation to live up to.
