Stanford men’s swimming and diving finished its season with an underwhelming ninth-place finish last weekend at the NCAA Championships, at which Cal claimed its third national title in four years. Juniors David Nolan and Kristian Ipsen failed to defend their four combined national titles from last season as no Cardinal swimmers won events at the 2014 meet.
The No. 5 Stanford men’s swimming team showed a promising ability to hang with No. 3 Cal, the defending NCAA runners-up, as it claimed victories in two of the six tri-events in the unofficial triple-distance meet — its final non-invitational meet of the fall. Although the results of the meet did not count towards either team’s record, it gave each team a chance to evaluate the other’s 2013-14 talent before the end of the fall season.
Despite the disappointing finish to last season, the Cardinal has several reasons to be confident that the 2013-14 season will yield better results.
