020 BANDANNA, KIDS AND THE DOWN-TO-EARTH CAELEB DRESSEL
by David Rieder
At the NCAA championships, Florida coach Gregg Troy had a story to tell about Caeleb Dressel. The story wasn’t about any of his American records or crazy heroics in the pool. Instead, it was about Dressel, the person.

022 CAELEB DRESSEL LEADS MYTHICAL MASHING OF RECORDS AT NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS
by David Rieder
In an alternate universe, there was a moment in Min-neapolis when breaking records became effortless, when vaunted barriers in the sport of swimming were felled, one after another. NCAA swimming has been transported to that alternate universe, thanks to Caeleb Dressel, the man who has become something of an urban myth.

024 WHEN TEXAS NEEDS HIM, TOWNLEY HAAS COMES UP BIG
by David Rieder
Townley Haas and the Texas Longhorns slogged their way through a sub-.500 dual meet season. Even Haas, the NCAA and Olympic champion and individual World Championship medalist, was losing to swimmers with far weaker credentials. But that didn’t bother him: “We knew that when it came to NCAAs, we’d be ready.”

by Dan D’Addona
After a good swim in the 100 butterfly prelims to reach the consolation final, North Carolina State’s Coleman Stewart—the top seed in the 100 back at NCAAs—finished seventh, relegating him to lane one.

026 LEGENDARY NCAA CAREER COMPLETE, THE REAL TEST AWAITS CAELEB DRESSEL
by David Rieder
For two years, the NCAA swimming community had already been enthralled with Caeleb Dressel. His sophomore and junior years at Florida, Dressel posted mind-numbing, internet-wrecking records at the SEC and NCAA championships…but he was unproven in the only venue that matters past college swimming: long course. With his professional career now starting, Dressel is ready for the challenge.

030 STEELE JOHNSON WINS FIFTH NCAA DIVING TITLE — ALL WITH BROKEN FOOT
by Dan D’Addona
While Caeleb Dressel is baffling the world with the way he dominates in the pool, there is another kind of long-term domination happening at the NCAA champion-ships. Purdue diver Steele Johnson has been one of the biggest names in diving for years and hasn’t lost a step — even with a broken foot.

034 TEXAS FOUR-PEATS: HOW DID WE FALL FOR IT AGAIN?
by Andy Ross
This year’s Texas team didn’t give any indication in the regular season they would be national champions in March…but looks can be deceiving. The Longhorns had what it takes when it mattered most.

038 SHORTEST NIGHT, LONGEST RELAY, INSTANT HISTORY FOR NC STATE, INDIANA’S PIERONI
by David Rieder
Since moving the 800 free relay at NCAAs in 2016 from the end of the second day of competition to the first day—all by itself—swimmers have been able to take their best shots at bludgeoning relay records as well as the individual mark in the 200 free.
