California won its fourth NCAA women’s team championship with a dominant three days of competition at the NCAA Division I Women’s Championships.

The Golden Bears delivered head coach Teri McKeever her fourth career coaching title with a 513-452 victory against defending champion Georgia, and sent Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin off to professional swimming as a winner.

McKeever now stands fourth all time for the most career women’s coaching titles.  Richard Quick (12), Jack Bauerle (6) and David Marsh (5) are the only coaches ahead of her.  She broke a tie with Mark Schubert, who had three.

Georgia, meanwhile, became the highest finishing team to not win an individual event at the women’s NCAA championships.

That broke a seven-way tie for the previous NCAA record of third-place held by 1985 Stanford, 1988 Stanford, 1993 Texas, 1995 Texas, 1996 Michigan, 2000 Stanford and 2003 Southern California.

Stanford wound up taking third overall with 363 points, while Texas A&M clipped Virginia for fourth, 231-229.

Swimming World photographer Peter Bick was on hand for the festivities.
