Women’s swimming and diving capture Pac-12 conference crown in momentous win

The wait is finally over for No. 1 Stanford women’s swimming, as the team collected its 20th Pac-12 conference crown this weekend. After three consecutive second-place finishes dating back to 2014, the Cardinal turned in a dominant performance in Federal Way, Washington, scoring 1,587 points to blow past No. 2 Cal (1,392) and No. 6 USC (1,250), who rounded out the podium.

Despite flurry of titles, women’s swimming and diving finishes second at Pac-12s
