Well, it finally happened. Stanford’s winning streak at the 2018 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships ended at the 100 fly, but the streak stayed in the Pac-12 as Southern California sophomore Louise Hansson won the final at 49.80 to move to second all-time. Hansson only sits behind Louisville’s Kelsi Worrell at 49.43 from 2016.

Hansson won ahead of Tennessee sophomore Erika Brown (50.34) and Stanford senior Janet Hu (50.56).

Cal’s Noemie Thomas (50.92), Ohio State’s Liz Li (50.94), Cal’s Katie McLaughlin (51.20), Louisville’s Grace Oglesby (51.25) and Missouri’s Annie Ochitwa (51.35) also swam in the championship final.

This is Southern Cal’s first overall NCAA title in the 100 fly.
