2023 NCAA WOMEN'S SWIMMING AND DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS TOP 10 TEAMS BY DAY 3 Virginia – 374.5 Texas – 272.5 Stanford – 239 Louisville – 191.5 NC State – 190 Ohio State – 170 Florida – 146 Tennessee – 135 UNC-Chapel Hill – 125 Indiana – 121 DAY 4 FINAL CALCULATION We have reached the final session of the 2023 Women's DI NCAA Championship. It’s been an incredibly fast race week, and it looks like we’re going to have another list of great events tonight. there are 200 backstroke, 100 freestyle, 200 frogs, 200 butterflies, platform dives and 400 free flag finals. Still, we will be launching jobs with the fastest heat of 1650, with Wisconsin’s Paige McKenna aiming to retain the title. Last year, Erica Sullivan finished second in the early qualifiers, but now she will be right next to McKenna as she races for the championship. Both will have to keep an eye on Kensey McMahon, who showed up in great shape early in the match with a freestyle win of 500. After breaking the American record in the PAC-12s, Claire Curzan was the 200 backstroke favorite who came to meet. He defended this position well in the preliminary qualifiers and was the only swimmer to pass 150. Still, Phoebe Bacon is having a perfect date, and Isabelle Stadden can play spoilers too. There will be a rematch between Maggie MacNeil and Gretchen Walsh, who go head-to-head in 100 freestyle, 50 freestyle, and MacNeil will go to the top. Both have flown incredibly in these championships and aim to finish it off with another individual title. Gabi Albiero, Katharine Berkoff, and Torri Huske are still in hiding and are confident they will make things interesting. In the 200 chest, Kate Douglass, who competes for the meeting’s third individual championship, will be against time. Douglass has dropped his own American record twice this season, and after a strong score of 202.60 in the preliminary qualifiers, he seems ready to run the goal once again. The last individual swimming event of the session is the 200 fly in which last year’s champion Alex Walsh will do his best to fend off Emma Sticklen, Dakota Luther and Kelly Pash, a trio of Longhorn swimmers. In the preliminary qualifiers , Sticklen and Luther were the first two-time leaders, so we’ll see who stays in the tank. 1650 YARD FREESTYLE - TIMED FINAL NCAA recording 1503.31—Katie Ledecky, Stanford Meet the record 1507.70 — Katie Ledecky, Stanford American record 1501.41 — Katie Ledecky, Gator swimming Club U.S. Open record 1501.41—Katie Ledecky, Gator swimming Club Pool record 1515.17—Katie Ledecky, Nation's Capital Winner Paige McKenna, Wisconsin Meet the record 147.24 — Beata Nelson, Wisconsin American record 147.16 — Regan Smith, the Wave U.S. Open record 147.16—Regan Smith, Riptide Pool record 149.30—Rhyan White, Alabama 2022 Champion Regan Smith, Stanford — 147.76 Top 8 Claire Curzan won her first NCAA title with a win in 200 backpacks.

Still, where it really shone was in the back half, with 27.21 and 27.75 halves, tapping into the pool record time of 147.64, adding power to the finish. The PAC-12 was a little behind with its best time swimming in 147.34, but this time it’s more than enough for him to win the sixth fastest performance and win in history. After the race, Curzan talked yesterday about what it was like to recover after a disappointing day. He said it was helpful to remember how hard he worked in his season and how he didn’t want him to define the date of that bad day. In the last 50, Phoebe Bacon 28.20 took Stadden by exactly half a second. This gave him enough space to get ahead of the Cal swimmer and finish second in the season's best 149.28. Stadden was slow again in ten with 149.38, and was slightly behind the top 148.12, which he swam to finish second in the PAC-75s after Curzan.
