PHOENIX, Arizona, March 18. TODAY is the first of a two-part special edition of The Morning Swim Show featuring an expansive preview of the NCAA Women's Division I Swimming and Diving Championships.

Host Jeff Commings and Swimming World contributor David Rieder break down the top names and races to watch this week in Minneapolis. Missy Franklin's NCAA championship debut, the battle for the American record in the 200 breast, the amazing depth by Cal in the 100 back and Georgia's quest to repeat as team champions are just a few of the highlights in today's show. Be sure to return tomorrow for part two, when Commings and Rieder talk about the relays, and give their predictions on the team standings. Visit SwimmingWorld.TV for more video interviews, and go to the NCAA championship landing page throughout the meet for video interviews and photos!
