Stanford’s women were dominant at the women’s Pac-12 championships over the weekend, winning all but four swimming events as they cruised to the team’s first Pac-12 championship in five years.

On the final night of the meet, Off Deck host David Rieder spoke with standout swimmers Ally Howe and Lia Neal, along with head coach Greg Meehan, to break down the team’s performances in Federal Way, Wash., and to look ahead to the NCAA championships. You can watch all of those interviews on today’s episode.

Howe spoke about the moment when she broke Natalie Coughlin’s 15-year-old American record in the women’s 100 back, while Neal discussed how it felt to anchor her final relay at Pac-12s and win her first team championship.

Finally, Meehan explained how this year’s conference championship felt different than his first, back in 2013, and he explained what his athletes might have left in the tank for the NCAA meet, beginning March 15 in Indianapolis.
