020 GEORGIA ON OUR MIND
by David Rieder
With the Georgia Bulldogs finishing first or second in the last five women’s NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships, picking Georgia No. 1 this year just makes sense—not to mention they have the talent…again!

024 TIME FOR DEFENSE
by Jason Marsteller
All of the team champions from last year’s NCAA II (Queens women and men), NCAA III (Emory women, Kenyon men) and NJCAA (Indian River women and men) Championships are getting ready to defend their titles. However, in 2016, the NAIA is guaranteed to crown a new women’s and
men’s champion!

030 A TOWER OF STRENGTH
by Annie Grevers
At 6-9, Texas swimmer Clark Smith—literally— towers over his competition. At NCAAs later this month, he’ll return not only to defend his 500 free title, but also to help his Longhorn teammates repeat as national champions. If they do, the UT Tower on campus will be lit completely in
orange and will display the #1 on all four sides of the 307-foot landmark.

012 SWIMMING TECHNIQUE MISCONCEPTIONS: SWIM THROUGH THE PAIN
by Rod Havriluk
A common misconception is that it is necessary to “swim through the pain” to maximize performance. Typically, the source of the pain is the shoulder, and the cause is either from the demands of conditioning or from injury. Swimming through pain from conditioning can have a negative effect on technique. Swimming through pain caused by injury is almost guaranteed to have a negative effect on technique, as well as make the injury even worse.

026 RELAY STRATEGIES: GETTING IT DONE
by Michael J. Stott
There’s so much more to winning a relay than just swimming fast. Decisions made before the race play an important role in giving a team the best opportunity to perform their best.
