Women’s 200 free relay

In a stunning turn of events, Stanford lost an NCAA title to California in the women’s 200-yard free relay with a disqualification at the 2016 NCAA Division I Women’s Championships.

Stanford initially touched in 1:26.71 to win what the Cardinal believed to be its eighth victory in program history.  However, Stanford wound up being disqualified after a lengthy video review, handing the title to California for its fourth team win ever in the event.

California’s Farida Osman (21.60), Kristen Vredeveld (21.71), Valerie Hull (21.85) and Amy Bilquist (21.64) wound up with the overall trophy in a time of 1:26.80.

Previous California’s Previous Wins:

2000 California (Anya Kolbisen, Haley Cope, Nicole Omphroy, Joscelin Yeo), 1:40.18 *
2011 California (Hannah Wilson, Colleen Fotsch, Erica Dagg, Liv Jensen), 1:27.36
2015 California (Kaylin Bing, Missy Franklin, Rachel Bootsma, Farida Osman) 1:26.41

Tennessee’s Faith Johnson (22.13), Harper Bruens (21.48), Maddy Banic (21.67) and Kira Toussaint (22.14) claimed second overall in 1:27.42, while Georgia’s Olivia Smoliga (21.46), Kylie Stewart (22.16), Meaghan Raab (22.08) and Emily Cameron (21.83) finished third in 1:27.53.

Smoliga’s 21.46 moved her into a sixth-ranked tie all time with Natalie Coughlin in the 50-yard free.

USC (1:27.57), Arizona (1:27.81), Virginia (1:27.85) and NC State (1:28.04) rounded out the championship finalists that put up official times.

Women’s 500 free

Virginia’s Leah Smith defended her title in the women’s 500-yard free at the 2016 NCAA Division I Women’s Championships.

Smith initially looked like she would join Katie Ledecky (4:26.58) as the only swimmers ever to break 4:30 in the event’s history. But, Smith faded down the stretch with a 4:31.33 for the win.  That’s the 15th-fastest time ever in the event’s history.

Smith became the 11th swimmer ever to win the 500 free multiple times.

Multiple 500 Free Winners:
3 – Lindsay Benko, Southern California
3 – Marybeth Linzmeier, Stanford
3 – Allison Schmitt, Georgia
2 – Haley Anderson, USC
2 – Tami Bruce, Florida
2 – Janet Evans, Stanford
2 – Mitzi Kremer, Clemson
2 – Emily Mason, Arizona
2 – Flavia Rigamonti, SMU
2 – Cristina Teuscher, Columbia-Barnard

Smith’s NCAA-Record Splits For Comparison:

24.86, 51.35 (26.49), 1:18.49 (27.14), 1:45.73 (27.24), 2:13.24 (27.51), 2:40.76 (27.52), 3:08.45 (27.69), 3:36.08 (27.63), 4:03.69 (27.61), 4:30.37 (26.68).

Brittany MacLean, the 2014 victor in this event, led a big Georgia event with a 4:33.05 for second. Hali Flickinger placed second for the Bulldogs with a 4:33.35.  That moved Georgia into the lead with 106 points against Virginia’s second-place 76.

Indiana’s Haley Lips (4:34.86), Michigan’s Rose Bi (4:35.76), NC State’s Hannah Moore (4:38.12), Ohio State’s Lindsey Clary (4:38.44) and Louisville’s Mallory Comerford (4:41.28) also scored in the A final.

Women’s 200 IM

Stanford’s Ella Eastin provided the Cardinal with some salve to mend its wounds from the 200-yard free relay disqualification by throwing down an American and NCAA record in the women’s 200-yard IM at the 2016 NCAA Division I Women’s Championships.

Eastin unleashed a time of 1:51.65, downing the American, U.S. Open and NCAA record of 1:51.77 set by Caitlin Leverenz for California back in 2012.

That’s Stanford’s NCAA record ninth victory in the event’s history.

Previous Stanford Winners:

1986 Susie Rapp, Stanford, 2:01.80
1990 Janel Jorgensen, Stanford, 1:58.17
1991 Summer Sanders, Stanford, 1:57.02
1992 Summer Sanders, Stanford, 1:55.54
1995 Jenny Thompson, Stanford, 1:57.63
2009 Julia Smit, Stanford, 1:52.79
2010 Julia Smit, Stanford, 1:53.56
2014 Maya DiRado, Stanford 1:52.50

Eastin moved up from seventh in the all-time rankings with a 1:52.77 at Pac 12s last month.

California’s Kathleen Baker threw down a swift time of 1:52.95, just off her eighth-ranked lifetime best of 1:52.80 also from Pac 12s.

USC’s Kirsten Vose picked up third-place overall in 1:54.27, while Texas’ Madisyn Cox snared fourth in 1:54.80.

Texas A&M’s Lisa Bratton (1:55.89), California’s Kelly Naze (1:55.89), Texas A&M’s Sydney Pickrem (1:56.13) and California’s Celina Li (1:56.16) rounded out the top eight.

It was a huge event for California, moving past Georgia into the lead 113.5-112.

Women’s 50 free

Georgia’s Olivia Smoliga charged her way to an NCAA record in the women’s 50-yard free at the 2016 NCAA Division I Women’s Championships.

Smoliga, who already moved to sixth all time in the event’s history with a 21.46 relay leadoff, moved all the way up to second with a 21.21 to win the sprint free and set the NCAA mark. The swim broke the 2009 record of 21.27 set by Arizona’s Lara Jackson during relay duty in prelims.

Smoliga only trails Abbey Weitzeil, who set the American record with a 21.12 two weeks ago in Austin while swimming for Canyons Aquatics.

Smoliga reclaimed the title she won as a freshman in 2014, and became just the ninth person to win the event more than once.

Women’s 400 medley relay

Stanford followed up Ella Eastin’s NCAA and American record in the 200-yard IM with an American and NCAA mark in the women’s 400-yard medley relay at the 2016 NCAA Division I Women’s Championships.

Ally Howe (51.89), Sarah Haase (57.02), Janet Hu (50.65) and Lia Neal (46.58) threw down a blistering time of 3:26.14.  That swim lowered their own NCAA and American record of 3:26.25 they just set at Pac 12s last month.

That’s Stanford’s NCAA-record 12th victory in the event’s history.
